Of course you want good quality tools.
Definitely not the cheapest available. (These usually get in your way.)
Probably not the most expensive. (These usually take you out of the 80/20 performance/price sweet-spot.)
You want things that are highly functional: free from frills (or bells, or whistles) but still designed and executed in such a way that it they give you a little lift when you use them.
You want – this is important – nothing precious.
No leather-bound notebooks unless you buy ten upfront as a demonstration of your commitment to filling them and moving on.
No over-reverenced fancy pens that clog from lack of use or end up being awkward to refill or go scratchy.
Things that either won’t wear out or are a little bit (whisper it) disposable, so that you use them up fearlessly.
In short, get The Right Tools For The Job.
Then – what are you standing around here for? – crack on.
