How I use my Moleskine pocket diary


"Why to use this classification system to organize my pocket personal
journal? Because I want to rapidly and effectively organize my ideas. I could
put my thoughts without any classification system. I could put my quotes here
and there. I could put book excerpts at random. The problem with this is that if
I search for something, I don’t want to check every of the 300 pages before
finding it. But I don’t want to put as many time to organize my journal that it
take to write it. It’s why I adopted a lightweight version of the analog blog
… The whole aim of this is system to save time while using my journal as
a personal source of knowledge. The axiom is that if I can’t find the
information I want; it’s that I don’t have the information. The personal journal
concept is a way to backup and/or create the knowledge, the information; and
this classification system is the way to find this knowledge, this information.
The union of the two concepts is the foundation of my axiom."
