Our School of Life linen-bound notebooks were designed to accommodate ideas, aspirations and worries in the therapeutic activity of writing down your thoughts.
A good project rarely comes to us in one go. Our minds tend to come up with fragments, which tumble out in the wrong order, at weird times of day and night. That's why we need a journal on hand to collect the fragments and allow us the opportunity to discern their logical shape and true identities. Working out what we really think and want is remarkably tricky. It might be the secret to a good life. We‚Äö√Ñ√¥re sometimes told that anyone can have a good idea and that execution is all. This journal disagrees. Good ideas are very thin on the ground and easily get snuffed out. Giving up too soon is a constant danger. A project that a while back seemed full of promise (even a touch brilliant) can fade and succumb to a fatal lack of confidence, time or simple organisation.
Writing helps. As do diagrams, charts, lists, under-linings, spidery connecting arrows and pages of liberating crossings out. Our minds get in the mood at surprising moments. A thought falls into shape as you're boarding a plane; a new angle strikes you while waiting for a friend in a bar; stuck in traffic a connection dawns on you and you feel compelled to reach for the journal before the lights change. Our projects are a chance to externalise what's good inside us: things like creativity, rigour, wit, elegance, the things developing in us that not everyone can see yet. A project is a statement of faith in the possibilities of our own growth.
