Sometimes the most important things in life are the ones we forget.
This inspiring collection of hand-drawn notes began with a simple premise: It's worth remembering what's most important in life, even when you can't see the bigger picture. From his very first note, written hastily in the backseat of a taxi for the benefit of the next passenger (it said -Never give up-), J. J. Penn has inspired both passersby and devoted online fans with his uplifting and quirky reminders. Every day since then, Penn's simple notes, created with nothing more than a pen and a sticky pad, have been photographed and then left in public--on a park bench, at a bus stop--anonymously and hopefully, to spread a little goodwill and brighten someone's day.
Collected in book form, they serve as a heartfelt reminder about what matters most.
