I like to turn this process into a little ritual. While I’m flattening down pages, I think about the first things I want to log, about what I want to carry over and what I don’t, but most importantly, I think about the story that I want to this notebook to tell. After all, each book is another volume in a library dedicated to your life. Do you have any rituals setting up your notebook? I would love to hear about them in the comments below.
