After listening to recent HanselMinutes show on Life Hacks I've got myself a Moleskine Pocket Notebook today. If you never heard of this it's a small (9 x 14 cm), lightweight notebook that fits perfectly in your pocket so you can carry it around. It also features a foldable pocket in the back cover, a cloth ribbon attached to the spine to serve as a bookmark, and a woven elastic band attached to the back to keep the book closed when not in use.
To be honest I'm really bad at being organized. I tend to loose track of whats going in my life. I used to write things down on what piece of paper I had at hand, then I switched to Post-It-Notes. Eitherway this quickly got messy, so my desk was always covered with piles of paper I never went through. Now I'm trying to put some of this stuff in OneNote and I consder as a bit of improvement. But it works only when I'm working on computer.
I also like the term “sink to paper“ very much. More often I do better thinking when I'm not in front of the computer and I like to put the ideas on paper. I think it keeps me more focused this way.
Fortunately I found a store in Kraków that sells Moleskines (Ksiegarnia Znak, Slawkowska 1) so I bought a Squared Pocket Notebook for myself and a Pocket Travel Info Journal for my wife. Both look and feel really nice. Now I need to find one of these famous Fisher Space Pens.
