I’ve been using a Moleskine notebook for several years. I was introduced to them through the GTD program by David Allen. What makes the Moleskine line of notebooks special is their solid construction & unique history
Currently there are 9 different types of notebooks so you’re sure to find one that’s right for you. I’m partial to the Pocket Size with grid paper, although I’m thinking about changing to blank paper to help foster some creativity (think outside the lines).
I’m planning on picking up a City Notebook for Chicago before my next trip up there. If it’s as functional as I hope I’ll be picking up city Notebooks for my planned trips to New York & Washington DC next spring.
I like to keep everything stored electronically but there are times when the laptop & PDA just won’t do… One of my favorite brainstorming tricks is to hit up the local coffee shop with some new tunes on the iPod, my Moleskine & my favorite pen. Tune out the world, consume some quality caffeine & capture all of the ideas that come pouring out.
