Getting things done. With paper actually.


"An elegant moleskine notebook may
be expensive, but in fact, the cost and quality brings a certain
respect for your thoughts. You won’t throw that thing away when it’s
full, and the book itself is robust enough to preserve your thoughts
for years. In time to come, you’ll pick up that elegant moleskine book
and flipping through, you’ll recall what you were thinking about in
2006, what you were trying to achieve, what you aspired to and what you
were struggling with. This is beautiful. Dare I mention PDAs and
Outlook in the same paragraph? Those things are disrespectful of human
markings, they are almost programmed to forget. They aren’t trustworthy

    Ah! you’ve hit the stride…

    probably no one will open all those docs on the hard drive with arcane names.

    Plus, I wouldn’t think twice about deleting a folder of files from my computer. Actual journals I can hold in my hand? I hoard them. Hah.
