Then figure out what you need to do right now to start making each of those things happen.
Flickr: Flickr is a great place to connect with people who are passionate about pretty much anything, including keeping a notebook. Two of the groups devoted to the subject include Notebookism and How to Wreck a Journal. You might also want to take a look at Mike Rohde's thoroughly inspiring Sketchnotes set.
Moleskinerie.com: A creative and inspiring website devoted to the art of keeping a notebook. There is also a Moleskinerie group on Flickr. (The notebook brand of choice of devotees of Moleskinerie is, of course, the Moleskine.)
