Write that down
People seem surprised when I tell them that I am a hardcore pen and paper person. I work in an online world, I love technology and my blackberry is never far from reach. However, when it comes to organizing my myriad of thoughts and to-do lists, I am married to my notebooks. I remember things better when I write them done. Often I'll hear the argument - "but you can write it down in your phone or on your computer, isn't that the same?". No, it's not. There must be some kind of neurotransmission that occurs when I make a hand-written note. I can't explain why, but it just makes them stick (most of the time). You could probably now understand why I have a bit of an obsession with notebooks. I wish I could get my hands on these (especially because they are Moleskine - my ultimate favourite!). They were custom-made by Toronto-based ad agency Juniper Park to give out to their VP's. I would have loved to be on the receiving end of that gift.
