Hello, this is Ten, the manager.
Today, I would like to answer some of the concerns that appeared in a survey I conducted on Instagram Stories the other day.
Concerns: ``I can't use my notebook properly'' ``It takes a long time to find what I'm writing where when I use different notebooks''
I will answer both questions at once 👩💻 I don't think in the slightest that the way I use it is the correct answer, but I hope it can be of some use.
Make it clear what the notebook is for
"I can't use my notebook properly"
Maybe the purpose of the notebook is unclear? I thought.
Why not clarify what the notebook is for?
For example, when it comes to "work notebooks," it's unclear what to write in your notebook, and you're always worried about what you should write in your notebook.
And I didn't know when it would be useful to look back at my notebook.
In such a case, let's clarify the purpose of creating a "work notebook".
① A notebook for managing todos and completing tasks efficiently without omissions 📔
② A notebook that allows you to see an overview of your schedule for the month and plan while thinking a little ahead 📆
③ Memorandum notebook to help you remember what you learned🧠
④Notes for studying what is necessary for work✏️
Once your purpose is clear, I think you will naturally learn how to write in your notebook and when to review it.
Be aware of purpose x frequency x location
“If you use different books for different books, it takes time to find what is written where.”
The same goes for this, and I think if you have a clear purpose for your notebook, you'll be able to know, ``This is the notebook for this occasion!''
Furthermore, there are things to be careful about when using them properly.
“Purpose x Frequency x Location”
Be aware of.
What do you use your notebook for, how often, and where?
By determining these three things, you will be able to know the size, number of pages, functions, etc. you need, increasing your chances of finding the perfect notebook.
(Until then, I had decided based on the design, so I gave up without using up all the notebooks.)
I also think that even if the purpose is the same, it is better to separate them if they are used in different places or how often.
For example, I use a notebook to write down ideas at my desk at work, and a notebook to jot down ideas and notes when I'm on the go.
Because the purpose is the same
“At my desk, I want to think deeply and thoroughly, so I like to write in a large notebook.”
“I want to write down the ideas I come up with on the train or on the go, and the information I see and hear so I don’t forget them.”
In that case, you can't use the same notebook.
For the former, I would like to write freely on a large A5 to A3 size, and for the latter, I would like to be able to write notes on a palm-sized paper that is convenient to carry.
That's how I use them.
I hope this is helpful 📛
