7 Smart Reasons to Carry a Notebook Always ...


I've blogged before about reasons to carry a notebook.

It's something I consider so important that I've come up with seven more reasons.

For me, as a writer, it's unthinkable to be without a notebook in my bag.

We may be living in a digital age, but pen and paper still have many advantages.

So here are some more reasons to carry a notebook …

1. Never Forget

One of the most practical reasons to carry a notebook is that it acts as a memory aide.

You can quickly and easily note down anything that you need to remember.

A notebook is the perfect place to jot down anything of interest or importance, and it keeps everything together, rather than scribbling notes on bits of paper that you'll soon lose.2

2. Record Your Thoughts

A notebook is an excellent way of recording your thoughts.

Whether it's for your own journal, or for later use in a blog, your notebook will serve as a collection of those random thoughts and observations that you'd be annoyed if you forgot.

If you do any kind of writing or studying, you'll know that great ideas often occur when you're away from your computer.

3. A Phone is Not the Same

Diehard notebook carriers will understand this - a phone is simply not the same.

Notebooks are an essential tool for the creative soul.

How can you create on a phone?

Phones are fine for noting brief details such as appointments or for sending messages.

But they are not a substitute for pen and paper.

4. Sketching

If you have an artistic eye (or even if you don't), you can make use of your notebook by doing sketches.2

It's a great way to while away the time while waiting for someone or something.

Don't be discouraged from drawing because you think you're no good.

You might be surprised what you can produce.

Besides, you can get better with practise.
