I’ve used Day One for years as a straightforward, personal journal. More recently, I started cataloging my work milestones and failures in a secondary Day One journal, and my internet likes in a third.

But this idea and short series from The Sweet Setup is quite interesting:

A commonplace book is a central resource or depository for ideas, quotes, anecdotes, observations and information you come across during your life and didactic pursuits.

The idea of expanding Day One (or insert your journal of choice) into these broader realms, especially things that influence me and sheer observations, is really interesting. I think I’ll give it a shot by putting it in the Dock on all my devices and see how it goes.
