One of the most important, if not the most important part of a well functioning system for managing the things you have to do is a ever changing system to manage it all.
The system I was happy with in 2010 or in 2012 or 2015 is not the same as what I am happy with today.
I started to notice some eh let’s call them “growing problems” with my pen and paper only system earlier this autumn; the short version:
- I forgot to write stuff down
- I didn’t find some of what I wrote down
So, I decided to move back to Todoist. Their apps aren’t the best, to say the least. But they do have a good API. So I can get it to do what I need.
Where does pen, paper and all the stuff we love fit into this?
While I don’t currently use pen and paper to mange everything (at the moment) I still use it for a few very crucial tasks. I still use my beloved Leuchtturm1917 dot grid notebook in the planning stage, or when I do a brain dump. And I still use it to map out the most important stuff I need to get done day per day per week.
And I do of course bring my notebook instead of a computer do meetings, like a grown up.
