My Moleskine, My Friend

For years and years I carried around a bulky day-timer because I liked having the feel of 'paper' in my hands and enjoyed the ease of jotting down notes on a whim etc. But then, like most other people, I got sucked into the world of Palm Pilots and then smart phones and felt the pressure to get rid of my old-school ways. Recently I decided to take a half step back in time and bought several Moleskine notebooks. I opted for the smaller-than-usual ruled soft notebook (192 lined pages @ 3.5 x 5.5) because they fit so well in my pocket.

I have to say, my world has been changed...or changed back. It's already hard to imagine not having one handy in my pocket.

I love mine too. I use it all the time. It helps with ideas for sermons and planning.

I have been using Moleskines for awhile - but haven't been able to find the soft ruled moleskines - where did you get yours?

I personally love the cahiers: http://www.moleskine.com/eng/_interni/catalogo/Cat_int/catalogo_cahiers.htm
They are thinner, fit more comfortably in pockets & come in packs of 3.

They are less daunting because they have less pages and if you lose it it's less of a big deal.

I used the 1 1/2 calendar for a few years and loved but recently went palm centro because w/ goosync you can sync google calendar w/ palm calendar.

Yeah Moleskines. Have you seen: http://www.moleskinerie.com/

Soli Deo Gloria,

I do recommend you to read David Allen's book: Getting things Done. It doesn't matter if is a PDA/Smartphone or a Moleskine notebook. The key is how u manage your thinking/planning process
