I love finding articles where people from all walks of life talk about using notebooks. It’s way too easy to find writers talking about using notebooks– that gets really boring after a while, so I was happy to come across this article, an interview with Lowell Cohn of the Press Democrat in Santa Rosa, CA, in which Mike Singletary, currently the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, talks about how he uses a notebook :
Mike Singletary carries a notebook around with him and records in it every significant event of every day as it occurs. Call it a life notebook. He spoke to me about it Wednesday afternoon.
Cohn: How often do you make an entry in your notebook?
Singletary: It depends on how many events I have throughout the day; at least three or four times. Every time I meet with a player, every time I have an interview, every time I speak to the team, every time I speak to a coach, every time I have a thought, experience something, learn something.
