Although I use my tiny blank book for random thoughts and ideas, I wanted to use these more as a task reminder and organizer. Just recently I was introduced to Ryder Carroll's Bullet Journal system and wanted to give it a whirl. Being that "County Fair" notebooks have the graph paper, I thought this would be perfect for implementing this bullet list technique. I mean, I do love writing lists, after all. It's only been a few weeks now, but I'm really liking this organizing system so far. I realized that I actually do get more things done when I see the tasks written down in front of me instead of trying to remember it all in my head. And there's also that instant gratification I get when I can cross off and ✓ the job done.
These notebooks are so light and compact I've been taking them everywhere with me, especially to work (since I don't have a work journal at the moment, surprisingly. I've been using those big ol' yellow legal pads instead.) I like the idea of having a notebook right there in arms reach and readily available for those pop-up meetings or important notes to remember, but still small enough where it's not an inconvenience to carry around. I am looking into getting a nice leather cover for these, though. Any suggestions?
Anyone else enjoying the Field Notes memo books or the Bullet Journaling System?
