"A Dream without a Plan is a Wish." A dear man who I worked for a few years back used to say this along with many other words of wisdom. He died a few weeks ago and I've often thought about him in the last few days. This quote seemed appropriate on a notebook I'm using to capture in one place all the ideas I have for blog entries, classes, designs, etc. Plato was certainly a man who lived his plan and made dreams come true for himself, his family, and his employees.
I often use this type of notebook from Office Max. It is 6" x 9 1/2" and is ruled on one side of each sheet and gridded on the other. Perfect for sketches, ideas, and to-do' lists. I always do a cover with designer paper and some flat embellishments. They get a little haggard or "loved" over time, but they are so much prettier than an ordinary notebook. And it is much easier to find buried on my coffee table or desk!
