Michael’s Scribbles: 2008-04-06

I did these ‘scribbles’ posts for a couple of days, then nothing. I didn’t stop typing them up – I just didn’t write any in the first place. Now that I am scribbling again, I’m doing it in a different place. I’m experimenting with using my Mini Filofax again. It’s a bit of a trade-off, as these things so often are. The area of paper to write on is quite a bit smaller than in a Moleskine, so I’m using a lot more pages. On the other hand, though, the paper is better, and I can have separate sections for other things. I’m not keeping a real GTD system at the moment, but it’s still useful to have some lists, like a wish list and a shopping list.

It’s quite possible I’ll be back to the Moleskine within a day or two, or that I’ll try to stretch my jeans pocket to cram in my Pocket Filofax. I have a worrying amount of fun trying them, though, and that’s the important thing.

Michael’s Scribbles: 2008-03-31

I carry a notebook in my pocket all the time – a Pocket Squared Moleskine at the moment. The way I use it is pretty much along the lines of PigPogPDA, but mixed in with more general journaling.

Yesterday, I had an idea – mark some of the notes as I go, and copy the marked notes to a blog post later that day or the next day.

So, I’m actually writing this entry on paper, with a pen (Pelikan M600). If you’re reading it, I actually got around to typing it up and posting it on PigPog. I’ll make the title something very simple, including the date, which should help make the typing-up process something that can be done without much thought.
