The possibilities are endless! Let’s take mind mapping and brain dumping for example. You can learn more about what a Brain Dump is in this VIDEO. A mind map is a creative way to brainstorm information. You can also identify how different tasks or scenarios are interconnected. To begin a mind map, start with a central focal point and create your branches to highlight sub-topics and ideas. You can leverage a page or two from your notebook to create the mind map.
Now that my kids are getting older, I love to journal their childhood memories. Journaling in durable notebooks also creates amazing keepsakes that document our lives for generations to come.
