Commonplace journal – This is an interesting “tool” that many people use but don’t know that it actually has had a name for hundreds of years. Many artists, writers, engineers and scientists keep special notebooks, like DaVinci. Some notebooks have pre-numbered pages for reference and so you can tell if a page was ripped out.
There are important benefits of keeping notes and keeping them all in one place. If you go back to find something specific, you will likely re-discover important ideas that you noted around the same time that you might not have thought about for a while.
Where are you keeping your journal? Paper? Electronically?
