Using a notebook

After Cam’s success with a Moleskine I’m going to have a go at doing all my capturing, projects and actions in a notebook and then using my T5 for calender, dated to-dos and digital reference material such as contact details and lecture notes.
I’m not yet ready to go out and specifically buy anything particularly pretty for the purpose because I’m not sure whether it will work yet so I’m using an A5 Spirax notebook I bought a while ago and never got around to using.

I have a tab 2/3 of the way though for the projects section of the notebook where I will have 1 or 2 pages per project where I can note down major milestones and next actions and the back couple of pages is for my someday/maybe list. The front section is simply for capture and I’ll put the weeks next actions on a large postit note inside the front cover.

The only thing I’m worried about is that I’ll get hopelessly behind on the whole process bit and won’t keep up to date on the weekly reviews. Productivity Buddy anyone??? Keeping in mind though that I’m shy (yes I know that everyone who met me at the TPN dinner will laugh at this because they have conveniently forgotten about the shy mousy girl at the beginning of the evening) so any correspondence will have to start with email until I’m confident enough to try skype.

    Hi Miriam, I’m keen to give this buddy thing a go if you are.I’ve commented here before about it but i think we’re in basically the same circumstances (ie engineering, age and concentration aptitude). I was hoping to chat to email you about your productivity post anyway but it’s on the to do list…Let me know if you’re
