Time for a new notebook, so I'm trying something different - as I've shared before that I like to do. I found this A6 Quo Vadis Habana for $11 at Writer's Bloc. Great paper.

For you notebook explorers, my son came home on break with an Ogami notebook. The only paper made of stone. About the size of a Moleskine though not as many pages. Smooth, fountain pen friendly. Solid, heavy feel to it. http://www.ogamicollection.com/
OGAMI IS A BRAND DEDICATED TO THE WORLD OF DESIGN. It has been created to produce everyday items that have their own original style and high level of performance thanks to use of innovative materials, finishes and technological solutions. OGAMI products are available in the most exclusive ...

+Clay Thurmond​ I didn't try it myself, but he said it was similar to his Pilot G207. He used my Metropolitan Pilot (medium).

Born ambidextrous, according to Mom (who remembers the first three years far better than I). Settled on my right hand for writing, but there are several things I do lefty and some I can do with either.

+Joe Skerjanec Thanks so much for the link. I've been wanting to get one of these without having to import one from the USA. Though i do love dealing with Goulet Pens, it's not always ideal. By the way, they do have a mechanism for coping with soft covers though I'm not sure how successful it is. Next payday purchase sorted.

I'm looking for a basketball lens, but the 70-200 is out of my range. I'm trying out the Canon 85mm f/1.8 and have tried the 200mm f/2.8. What do you like?

I'm with you. I just bought the 85mm this winter and loved it for hoops - a great purchase. I rented the 200mm, but I had to shoot from the stands or from the other end of the court. I love the lens, though. It will be my next purchase for football season. I love the primes.

Whether you support this kickstarter or not, this could put your #bulletjournal  on steroids: #passionplanner - http://goo.gl/cLHwyS. I already see elements of it through the posts in this community.
An appointment calendar, goal setting guide, journal, sketchbook, gratitude log & personal and work to-do lists all in one notebook.

Some of you know I have incorporated J.D. Meier's "Getting Results the Agile Way" into my #bulletjournal  system. For those interested, here is a great overview he writes in his blog; though, he doesn't address year-long goals (which is also part of it). He expresses the importance of writing things down. FYI http://bit.ly/1mtLYPR

Following the Index and #calendex, I title the page, "Year at a Glance" and I make three lists: Personal Goals, Professional/Career Goals, and Work Goals. The Agile Way focuses on the big three, so I only have three or four major goals I wish to accomplish for the year for each category. 

I then use one page for each month of the year and list the expected outcomes and activities for that month (leaving space for others I may recall later). When that month arrives, I reference these pages and refine my tasks with the monthly calendar.

Each Monday I title the next page "Monday Vision," and as he suggests, I list my big tasks for the week. Most of the time I know what these are, but I reference my monthly task list in the #bulletjournal. I don't alphabetize mine. Following this I list my three "Monday Wins" or what I need to accomplish that day. 

Sometimes a Vision (weekly task) for the week may be a project, so I reference that collection for the tasks to list in the Daily Win page each day throughout the week. Other times a weekly task is just that, so I list it in a Daily Win to be accomplished that day. I also document things I've done i.e., calls that have come in, or people who have popped by, in the Daily Wins. It is a record of my day.

I try to take time at the end of the day to reflect on my accomplishments and blessings, so I can be mindful of what habit(s) to work on the next day to improve my results. I also photograph the day's pages in Evernote. 

At the end of the week, I review my blessings and what I've done well, and I account for my shortcomings and what habits I need to work on for the following week. If I accomplish just my Daily Wins, I count it a good day. The bonus is knocking off other, smaller tasks from the monthly list. This is also a good time to reference the "Year at a Glance" page.

The Agile Way has transformed the way I think about my productivity. Its is a change in philosophy different from GTD - it is as he describes about getting results.

For awhile now I've contemplated the future of my personal journals and now bullet journals. If my kids and/or hopefully some day grandkids will want them, there will be only one set of journals to share. However, by saving them in Evernote with my phone scanner app, they are there to share indefinitely in PDF.

On the other hand, TYPING a journal in Evernote or Penzu or the like does not reveal my persona like the poetry of ink on paper can. Imagine reading typed Abe Lincoln letters? Not that I have anything profound to say. It is simply about leaving a legacy, so we don't forget our story...and that is another beauty of the Bullet Journal.

I've struggled with digital, analog, analog but scanned. I like the "it's always with me and searchable" aspect of Evernote, but I don't like that I can't export my notebooks from EN (which is why I pretty much stopped using EN). I agree with the posts above that there is something more connected about handwritten or hand-doodled. Maybe I just need to not be lazy and set aside some time to scan/take pictures of my notes. Great discussion!

For those who use analog and digital, this is very cool. From what I understand, they will be available in the US in May. #whitelineslink    #leuchtturm1917

Just purchased the grid paper version for my bullet journal, and it works just fine. Nice quality paper, pouch in the back, solid cover and an elastic to hold the book closed. Purchased it at Omer Des Series in Montreal for 15!
