Notes of all types, I use my Moleskine primarily as an analog alternative to my BlackBerry and ThinkPad tools. It’s a method of capturing thoughts and ideas which are important to me going forward.
I find it rather relaxing to use, and a great way to recover my hand writing. After years of laptop use, my handwriting was going away. Now I’m able to read what I write (how novel…) and I find the intrinsic experience of putting pen to paper very satisfying. Another method that I now employ is to start at the front with my calendar, and then begin from the last page, after flipping it over and write towards the center. My goal is to use all the pages, and I keep a table of contents in the front (for the front) and the same applies to the back. Previously I was finding myself with random unused pages, as every time I wanted to start a "fresh page" I would skip a few, to allow continued note taking for the prior topic , but ended up with wasted pages, disorganized due to the jumps.
Finally I did try tabs but did not like the way that worked (or didn’t) for me. Numbering the pages and having a table of contents works for me.
