Design Basics: Always carry a notebook

Let’s go back to the time when in order to access information we had to physically go to the library to read and research on dozens of books, when we actually had to think and process our thoughts in order to achieve something. Nowadays, technology has made it so easy and effortless to gain information that our minds have lost the ability to think for itself and come up with new ideas.
