D is for... De-Stress (and Doodle)
Through out the Career Development Workbook are De-Stress (and Doodle) Pages, aimed at getting you relaxed, tuned into your creativity and used to the idea of actually using the book as a workbook - writing in it, drawing in it and following its instruction and guidance.
I am not going to include an "extract" of the doodle pages, instead I wanted to open a discussion regarding annotation and doodling in books.
Do you or don't you?
In regular fiction (or non-fiction) books - do you doodle, annotate, highlight, stick post-it notes or whatever else into you book?
Personally I use colouring pencils rather than highlighters and do a lot less annotations than I used to (as a student I probably had the most annotated books imaginable) but this is still something I will do. However, there are times I do prefer to keep a book in "good condition" and will use a notebook along side.
The workbook combines these. I can write and doodle keeping everything in one place (maybe supplementing it with a diary) and it is a much more useful book.
If you are the sort that like to keep their books in pristine condition (or simply don't write in them) - would you?
