My Moleskine

Ian_bw_1"Back in Boston, 2001, I walked into a book store looking for a replacement
journal and found, well, something special. Moleskine. The black cover. Cloth
bookmark. And the history. Used by Van Gogh, Matisse, Hemingway, and others.
Well, I was sold. With a shelf full of full Moleskine journals later, I have
been hooked ever since.

Don’t get me wrong. I am a happy Mac user. However, I have never found a
better or more gratifying substitute for writing my thoughts, ideas,
inspirations or lists. And, I am on a quest that has not ended yet (although I
sincerely hope it will), to develop an organizational system that works
perfectly for me.

To my delight, I have discovered over the last couple of days a global
community of Moleskine fans. It is always gratifying to know that you are not
alone in a minor obsession.

Personal productivity tools impact personal effectiveness – and that
certainly falls under the heading of career management in my book. So, off and
on, I will be sharing a bit about how I organize myself – and more importantly,
tips and tools that I pick up from others more knowledgeable than I. Of course,
expect to hear more about my beloved Moleskine journal as well. Happy

Ian Christie
