Over Christmas, I picked up a Midori style notebook cover for my Field Notes. I was so excited to get one as I had wanted one for a long time. But a funny thing happened to me along the way of getting it all set up and such.
I found myself wanting another notebook. I have used it for a few weeks and am not as thrilled as I had hoped. I am tempted to go back to my disc bound set up – mainly so I can have all my notes in one place. At least that is what I am telling myself.
Am I just a person who is unhappy? Am I always looking to tweak things? Or am I going to ever find the one true system that will make me productive beyond all measure?
I think that for a lot of us in the stationery world are like those I met in the board game world. We’re never satisfied. Part of the fun of the hobby is looking for what is new and exciting. I think that is how we are wired. But I am beginning to wonder if all this just gets in the way.
What about you? If I described you in this post, would you mind taking a moment and leaving a comment below? If anything, it might be good just to know I’m not alone.
