Moleskine Monday: The Problem

This blogger loves Moleskines but has a couple of problems with them: he finds the paper too thin, and feels they are sometimes “too nice” to be used. But he’s fighting against that:

Notebooks should be used, that’s what they are there for. This is plain paper, put something on it and turn the page. It doesn’t matter if it is “Buy milk” or the solution to all the problems in the world, just put some ink on the pages. Otherwise they will cry, feel left out, and then that will seep on over to you in the form of the curse of the blank page, starring you and your inability to actually produce anything of value.

Don’t care for your Moleskine notebook, don’t value it too high. Value what’s in it instead, by which I mean to say that you actually need to fill the book’s pages to make it worth anything. Even if it is just your shopping list.

One thought on “Moleskine Monday: The Problem”

  1. That is great advice. There’s too many people who don’t use their good candles and their nice China and it just sits in the cabinet for the shelves to enjoy. Then you die and there’s a house full of candles and china that nobody got to enjoy. I was in a quandary about writing in my Moleskine Peanuts limited edition, but i don’t want to leave behind a blank page. I’m sure it will mean more to my kids if I’ve written in it. Good word for the day.
