Rare is the person who has both an agenda and their resolutions for the new year ready to go on January 1st. Most of us um and ah a little instead, taking time to consider the practical aspects. Should I get a gym membership, or just take up running? Do I want a pocket-sized journal, or a wall calendar to share? These ideas tend to get a little clearer as we slough our way through chilly January. One might even say that they go hand-in-hand: that we'll pick a notebook that we hope will represent our year. To check our theory, we asked three notebook buyers in our Amsterdam store what their plans were for 2018, and compared them with the notebooks that they bought.

I don’t really want to change my situation a lot, but rather develop things that are already in progress. I want to engage more with the people who are already around me, and have deeper relationships with them, rather than a larger social network. I’m also interested in doing something for my neighbourhood, either in borough politics or at my local buurtkamer. But I haven’t made a smart plan about that.
