Here are some reasons for carrying around a notepad, irregardless of size:
One kept on a nightstand will be handy for late night “light bulbs”. Some of your best thoughts are
“ah hah” moments. This is one way that notepads are great resources for writers.
A great thought (only if in your mind..:) ) can be jotted down as soon as you think of it. This will keep in fresh in your memory. How many times have you thought of something that was a great thought when it happened? You don’t write it down and try to recall it later…you’ve probably forgotten about it.
By carrying one in your car, you can write down license plates of drivers who deserve to be
reported to the police. You can write down crime site locations. You can write down descriptions
of people involved in crimes. The list goes on and on. Put one either in your dashboard, or for ease,
put it in/on your sun visor. It’s easiest to get to from this location. Be sure to put a pen next to it, for
super easy recording of needed information.
Write down your daily moods, happenings, and thoughts as a form of journalizing.
If you like lists, you can maintain your list of daily activities to do in your handy notepad. Update your list by simply whipping out your notepad and writing your new task in it.
For those tkr patients among us, we could write down our daily progress, questions, and/or activities. It would be your recuperation journal. Take it with you to your doctor’s visit. It will help you keep track of how things are going. (This’ll fit in great with the search engines. 🙂 )
Why am I writing a blog post about this? I was going to write on a phenomenal topic, but cannot remember what it was. I didn’t write it down in my notepad. 😦
