Getting Things Done - planner & spare cards

The hipster moleskine works best at a certain volume, so I keep a lot of spare cards inside. This is also the idea behind Dave Gray's hack of using this as a notebook.


One thing I've noticed, in the years I've been using index cards, is that when you feel like you're low on cards, you don't use them as much, which defeats the purpose. You want overabundance, and instant access. Which is why there are blanks clipped to the back.

    so are you ripping out the guts and using it has a cover for your hipster?

    Of a moleskine memo, yes.

    Quite a nice idea, i use that way of a folder-moleskine.

    As a freelancer, I've been in my hermitage for some time, and so have just found out about this whole analog revolution. I am enthralled! Jazzmasterson's tag board, judyofthewoods' slip method -- gorgeous. Tactile. Human.

    I tried to convey all this to a friend (a more average, electronic kind of a guy) and was stunned when he didn't get it. He started listing the practical virtues of his Palm Pilot -- no, no, don't you see? This isn't just about productivity, although it takes me five seconds to write something down on an index card and two minutes to get the stupid Palm Pilot up and running. There's so much more going on here... oh, forget it.

    So, what is this illness called? And is there a support group?

    Not sure if there's a name for the illness, but support groups abound. :) See, for example, the groups this photo is part of...

    i'm with plain.english - this whole hipsterpda/index card organization system is fairly new to me (although i have always preferred paper to electronica), and it's wonderful! really appeals to my need to be as non-linear as possible. thanks for sharing so many ideas jazzmasterson! :-)
