About 18 years ago I was invited to be a member of a business think tank at a local hospital. Members were selected to provide feedback on the executive health program the hospital was creating.
Participants were showered with many useable promotional products as a thank you. One item became a most valuable record of my personal and business life.
That item was a very thick hot pink steno-sized spiral-bound notebook that soon became my brain book. I wrote things to remember, feelings I had, wins and disappointments, wild-hare ideas to someday put into action and anything else that I didn’t want to forget. I included thoughts I might not be able to recall when needed whether personal or business.
This pink notebook, although small,
came to be known as my BRAIN BOOK.
Since that first experience with what many now call a “brain-dump,” my use of spiral notebooks has evolved into a more organized style. To a stranger picking up my Brain Inventory spiral notebook it would appear to be a huge mish-mash of gobbledee-goop.
To me this spiral notebook is the content and business resources that I treasure and use almost daily. As your Brain Inventory spiral grows in value and content, you enter each item into the index allowing fast access to specific entries.
I want to share with you my exact, simplified

If you are an active user of Pinterest I am sure you have seen 7,329 versions of bullet journals and business plans. Some are simple and others are more complicated than diagramming the universe.
The bullet journal form of organization has become a science to some people who meticulously create illustrated and extremely detailed e-books and journals. This style requires a lot of copying and re-creating.
Many journals are expensive and still lack the organization to include everything in one place. This is where my ULTIMATE Brain Inventory System journal stands out as the best choice.
The simple process of my ULTIMATE Brain Inventory System has become foolproof, easy to use because important entries are recorded and indexed.

Compress Timeframes and You Will
Exceed Your Goals
Here is the basic overview of how it works…
1. Choose a spiral notebook that is 80 to 100+ pages, and close to 8-1/2 by 11 inches, letter size.
2. Be sure the notebook(s) have a perforated tear line in case you need to remove an intact page.
3. I use 4 colors of pens for entries. They are black, blue, red, and sometimes green. I like the Uni-Ball 207 gel pens
4. I use good quality highlighters that don’t bleed through a sheet of paper in the colors of yellow, orange and pink. My favorite and the only brand I buy is Sharpie Smear Guard Highlighters. I like the shape and they don’t bleed. I like a bright or florescent yellow.
Before you make any entries into your bullet journal you must do three things:
1. Leave the first 8 sheets blank (16 pages.) This will be your index.
2. Number each of the remaining pages. I use a rose-colored (non-bleed through) marking pen to the upper outside corner of the page. To me the color is important. It doesn’t throw a blanket on my creativity. Yes, really!
3.When you make an entry of significance, enter the description or key notation on a single line in the index with the PAGE NUMBER and the DATE in the margin.
Be sure the pages in your index are in consecutive order with the same numbers you have used to number the blank pages for entries. This makes finding your entries easier than the hunt and peck random method.
Small post-it notes can serve as index page markers for entries you use a lot. It’s a bit of a time save to just flip through the index tabs on pages.
Here is a sample of what I record in my spiral binders…
My ULTIMATE Brain Inventory journal is where I store information and ideas to later collect, compile, create and communicate content for my blogs, websites, and writing. This ensures I will never run out of topics and key content.
Only the headline or top level topic is documented in the journal. Be sure to note where the full content and images are stored on your computer or in a file.
The exception to this is when I am brainstorming or expanding a topic into a sequence. Including more content with each topic triggers my thoughts and key verbiage. This is a great place to insert reminders.
I think on paper. Not everyone does. When you are creating a word map of thoughts, brainstorming key words or any random paper thinking, you can insert that thinking worksheet into a pocket of your spiral for later refrence if needed.
I like to work directly into my Brain Inventory spiral even if I am laying something out on a separate paper or Smarterqueue or ConvertKit on my computer. These are two programs I love! I will link to them as soon as my “Top Tools List” is finished.
Other things I record are my business quarterly planning, pricing of products and courses, key words, hash tags, brainstorms to promote my business and blogs, things I hear or read that trigger a major idea in my mind, ideas for blog posts, verbiage that resonates with my niche, what is hot in the niche I am serving, and just about anything that will get lost in my brain if it is not written in a single easy to retrieve location.
Remember your Brain Inventory journal is for brainstorming, not storing minute details and total content.
I record my brainstorms (usually evergreen, meaning they are rather timeless) to process at a later time or when it fits a sequence of content I am sharing with my readers.
If what I am recording is not evergreen it needs to be noted to my editorial calendar or when I set the post live from Smarterqueue and mark it as evergreen or to be used for a specific date or season. Smarterqueue allows me to categorize each post as specific information and reader takeaways.
I record books I review and notes in my Brain Inventory journal. I am known to always have a big stack of books by my reading chair. If the book is from the library, I like to record the library call information along with my specific comments or reference to passages. These are noted by the book’s page number with the thought or content I am recording. I also note the date of pages I take photos of with my phone. I do this to reference page content, like a bibliography.
Tech knowledge and how-to is an important section of my journal. I have a boat load of usernames and passwords that I keep alphabetized and recorded in a separate 3-ring binder. But, there are some tech related tips and procedures that I don’t often use and more often forget.
To keep from wasting time looking up the solution to a tech challenge, I record the solution or process in my journal with reference to the journal page and date recorded in the index.
Date is important for tech tasks because they are always changing and I need to know the latest recorded how-to.

Consistency is critical for success!
You must be consistent in both writing and promoting your business.
Your blog is an asset of your business, it is not your business.
This applies to work at home online business and
to brick and mortar storefront business equally.
I love reading the hand-written record of my thoughts. I enjoy re-experiencing that personal feeling and joy I had while writing. And, that is one of the smaller reasons I am addicted to writing in general and in my ULTIMATE Brain Inventory journal.
