Since our last post was on personal organization, we figured we'd run with the theme this week. We're not huge on fancy electronic gadgets. We still use an almost-decade-old Palm-based PDA to organize our lives at a daily/weekly level. For monthly/yearly organization, we use a paper calendar. We like the paper format for long term planning because we can compare different months side-by-side, color code items (with one of our 6 colored highlighters!) and share this information with others without going into the nitty-gritty. Any tasks for the day/week - the Palm works well with its little "alarm" reminder.
But what if the Palm was to go dead one day (any day now), could we even go completely non-PDA? We think something like Muji's Chronotebook may work just as well (here's why). If you like visual in-your-face reminders, a neat idea like this may work for you. If you like to do long-term planning on paper (or on your wall), check this out. If you're tight on funds, any notebook or a huge piece of contruction paper at your local dollar store will do. It's your life... be creative!
