One pen, one notebook

Every year or so I used to buy a box of really cheap pens. They would often break, or I would lose them, or they would… disappear.

I wrote my ideas
in notebooks,
on empty papers,
on the back of shopping receipts,
in my agenda,
in word documents
and in many, many more places.

Some months ago I decided that something needed to change in this chaos.

I threw away all the cheap pens and bought one quality fountain head pen.
I chose one notebook as my only place to write.

Since then,
I have never lost my pen,
it has not broken
and it has not disappeared.

But the best thing is that now I always know where I have written things down.

One pen, one notebook.

Just enough for this turtle to carry around. 🙂
