What is a notebook?
A notebook is paper, card, glue, and perhaps a twist of thread to stitch the binding together.
The components are simple.
But notebooks are magical. As soon as you purchase one at the stationery store and scrawl your name in the front cover, it has been transformed.
It is no longer
paper, card, glue and twine; it is an extension of you. When you add yourself to the ingredients list it isn't just
notebook anymore, it's
notebook. There is no other like it in the world.
You add your thoughts, your habits, your visions, your goals. It is messy. It is neat. It is dog-eared. It is imbued with your personality and emotions. Sometimes your notebook is the only safe place to express those emotions...
Not only that.
It is your notebook at this specific time and place. A notebook you bought and used two years ago will bear no resemblance to the notebook you bought yesterday. In that interval of time you have changed and matured, and the notebooks will reflect that.
To make your notebook extraordinary, and like no other, all you have to do is sit down and: write, scribble, sketch, glue, paste, cut, doodle, or do whatever else you feel like doing at that moment.
And then it is yours.
And it is extraordinary.
Because you are extraordinary.
