I know some people like to keep work notes electronically, but I prefer paper for speed of writing and to organize my thoughts physically in front of me.
After an online conversation about notebooks at work, Patty wrote an excellent post on how she used her notebooks in her fast-paced work environment to capture and process information. I especially like her method of lining through the entire page when all the information has been processed.
Jordan wrote a great post awhile back on her blog The Crazy Life of J about how she uses her Journal 21 planner and a notebook together at work. It’s a great combination of planning her days in detail in the Journal 21, and recording notes in her notebook. She, like many, uses a steno (top-spiral) notebook for work notes. I never have been able to use a steno book effectively because I like to see things across a two-page spread.
Starting my new job here on Quo Vadis blog meant I got to start a new notebook! Huzzah! I looked through my embarrassingly huge stash of notebooks and chose a Clairefontaine A5 size staple-bound notebook because it’s slim and portable, and of course for the wonderful paper.
What type of notebook do you like to use for work?
