People who know me well would perhaps call me slightly eccentric, when it comes to my enthusiasm for fountain pens, paper stationary and paper organizers. But those of you who like the feeling of writing with a nice pen in a Moleskine notebook, you should definetely read this article.
It's a great comparison of all the paper based planner systems on the blog How to be an Original.
I’ve been using technological solutions for my calendering and for managing my To Do’s (or Next Actions) for a long time now. The last paper planner I owned and used is pre-2000. My last solution was a PDA I used for planning, contacts and for my Getting Things Done system.But the PDA was stolen recently. Time for a brand new start, and I’m switching back to paper. I know, I couldn’t believe it myself either, but it’s true.
Paper planners are great for Getting Things Done, because of better speed when you want to capture stuff, and when you want to skim your next action lists.
I own a Levenger Circa i A5 size, that I carry around all the time. This was quite an investment at the time I bought. A great system.
