Moleskine hacks

Here is a lovingly hand-drawn page of a GTD Moleskine hack.

And here is a fellow webizen who doesn’t get the whole Moleskine cult. Hahah… I don’t hate it though, just don’t get it.

Updates on my Moleskine search

It’s like a mix of envy and curiosity. I still don’t know what’s so good about the Moleskines, but I am now attracted to them (probably only due to the shear popularity of them online). They are still way too expensive for me. I probably won’t find anything to write on them (Although I am writing a novel).

I had just discovered that Neil Gaiman is a lover of such goods. I am currently reading his Anasi Boys. Perhaps I will let my preference of his words to sway me of his taste in his stationery.

Also, I had come across this website. There is a wealth of beautiful drawings made in Moleskines. This reminds me of my drawing made on my journey around Italy. I guess, next time I make a solo journey, I will get a Moleskine.

I had also spent some time today reading up on GTD. And here is a Moleskine hack to accommodate the GTD system. Interesting stuff. I had recently bought a leather cover for the tiny notepad that I carry around. Now I will put GTD into practice.

GTD, according to Wikipedia:

GTD rests on the principle that a person needs to move tasks out of the mind by recording them somewhere. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can concentrate on actually performing those tasks.

Man, this Moleskine research is turning into an Obsession.
