I’ve tried many times to write notes on my iPad. Even borrowed the Apple Pencil from people for a week or two. But writing notes on that never seemed real, convenient, and honestly fulfilling.

The best benefit was of course that I can organize and search my handwritten notes way more easily. But that wasn’t enough to build a habit of writing on a tablet.

That’s why I think physical notebooks are the best. The way you hold a pen. The way you put ink on a piece of paper. It just feels satisfying.

Nowadays, I almost have a little notebook always with me. If I want to write something down, I will use it. These could be ideas, problems, unique thoughts, and even bullet points from a deep conversation.

And honestly, I skim lots more through my earlier written notes than on an iPad.

I think physical notebooks are just way superior to writing on tablets or any hardware device for now.
