Todd Henry talks about keeping a Commonplace Book on the Accidental Creative:
A Commonplace Book is single place where you keep ideas, quotes, inspiring thoughts and other potential useful information for regular review and potential repurposing.
Principles for keeping a Commonplace Book:
- Keep only one and make it single purpose
- Review it regularly
- Use it to generate ideas
- Don’t be too selective [on what you add to the book]
