I’ve decided to go analog and carry a notebook with me for recording my to-do lists, ideas, upcoming events, monthly goals, and the like, instead of relying on my phone or tablet. (See my last post.) Sure, it’s one more thing I have to cart around, but I carry a backpack purse anyway. I’ve noticed that it’s become harder and harder for me to remember what I need or intend to be doing, and I’m wondering if it’s because I’m not physically writing it down. They say that the act of writing–pen on paper–aids memory. And I know that when I’m making notes or getting my ideas out, I prefer to write them longhand first before typing them in the computer.
Besides, I love notebooks, don’t you? How do you keep track of what you need to do?
