We’ve recently received a sample in the office for a notebook called “My Essential” which is made by Clairefontaine (more on that next week) which got me thinking about what is essential and what would you write in an essential book. It makes it seem too important to write down grocery lists or random doodles. But the more I thought about it the more I felt that essential is going to be different to every person.
Sports for example is a big part of a lot of people’s lives and then there’s the other side that could not care less about it. However sports is a big deal for me and I would deem it essential which is why I have a notebook dedicated to sporting events I’ve been to, bucket list of stadiums I want to see and other musings on the topic.
Do you have dedicated notebooks for specific topics? What “essential” thing do you keep a notebook for?
