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
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.
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. 🙂
