Why You Should Always Carry a Notebook
Srinivas Rao

And it has to be a moleskine notebook because…..? Or was that just mentioned in passing cas they’re cool and expensive?

In Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar by Simon Sebag Montefiore, eyewitness accounts repeatedly mention the notebook that Stalin too carried everywhere and in which he marked the names of the people or districts that were to be purged, tortured, then killed or sent to the gulags along with their families.

So I suppose when you say that ‘The surprisingly simple act of carrying a notebook can change your life…’ it’s worth remembering it often it won’t be you who‘s doing the carrying.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
