The Moleskine notebook is hugely popular within the GTD community. Personally I’m not sure what all the fuss is about, it’s just a notebook!
Anyway, the reason for this post is that there’s a rather strange “Moleskine – The Book of Revenge” advert on the ‘Net at the moment (requires Quicktime).
There are quite a few “hacks” for Moleskine’s going around at the moment with Jerry Brito and 43Folders (and at the 43Folders Wiki) joining in the debate.
I quite like Jerry’s idea however I find the concept of having a book with fixed pages too rigid, I like being able to add/remove pages whenever I wish which is why I’ve started using an A5 folder with the DIY Planner Classic/A5 Edition which isn’t 100% where I want it but it’s getting there. I never thought I’d say this but it’s better than my PDA (gasp) which I’ve stopped using since the recent My Life Organised debacle.
I’ll be posting details of my new paper-based system as soon as I’m happy with it and I’ve gotten around to reading David Allen’s free e-book on setting up a paper organiser.
