3. Keep increasing weekly, until you only use your notebook for everyday work tracking and activities.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Same time is key. To develop your habit, start out by doing it at the same time every day. We recommend mornings as one of the first things you do is write down in your notebook.
✓ Trigger your mind. It’s easier to develop a habit when there are physical items present. Keep your notebook somewhere visible and always near you so would create an impulse to reach for it whenever you need.
✓ Let the app help. Use the calendar function in this app to track the days you missed using your notebook. You may also set a reminder for the same time to ring he time for notetaking.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone a full month of using your notebook every day, reward yourself by buying a more expensive notebook and pen, so they would feel special and smooth when you use them.
✓ Celebrate small victories. Every time you perform this habit, congratulate yourself! Say “I’m awesome” or “I’m so cool” out loud and with a smile on your face.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Digital vs physical. There is inherently nothing wrong with taking digital notes. However, there are studies done that show it’s easier to memorize information when it’s written by hand. That is also the reasons schools still use notebooks instead of laptops or tablets. You may also find it easier to memorize certain information when you scribble it by hand.
✓ Good quality. Once you get comfortable using the notebook regularly, it gets even more important to make the experience pleasant with good quality notebook pen. Don’t be afraid to invest in something you use every day.
