There’s something I have always had a problem with, and it concerns handwriting. I have never been able to write in such a manner that it is readable by anyone but myself (just like the notes most physicians hand you, which only they and the chemist seem able to read).
I’ve tried numerous times to improve it but to no avail, it’s just not readable. I take my time, write slowly, but when finished, it’s just not readable. On average that’s not really a problem, unless when i try to read my notes, sometimes i have just written way to fast and I loose precious time determining what I have written down. Luckily nowadays nobody expects something to be written other than postcards ;).
To force me to write slowly, I use a Mont Blanc Fountain pen which has improved my writing somewhat. But currently I’m hardly asked to do anything in written, and that is why i forced myself to regularly start to write something once every while. In most cases I will then put it on this blog. The notebook i bought is a moleskine notebook, primarily because I like its distinguished black look, and it feels comfortably in my hands. It’s not as big as my average notebooks I use for notes when attending meetings.
