I guess this falls under "gear." The wallet DA Co is selling looks great but before it was available (unless I just hadn't scrolled down far enough) I was listening to David's live CD and heard him talk about the wallet/notepad thingy. The hunt was on because I knew I needed that pen and pad with me at all times. I found the perfect deal from the Swiss Army people, Wenger. This really is not a commercial, so I won't say more than that, but it is easy enough to find. Outside of using the GTD add-in for Outlook, I am decidedly "mid-tech" with my GTD efforts. The wallet/notepad is one of my favorite DA ideas.
I'll probably end up with the DavidCo version of the wallet eventually. You know, the Swiss Army folks put their little logo on everything, so my inner-geek becomes an "outer-geek" when I take my wallet out with its little red and silver logo.
My question, and I do have one, is about a pen. I'm using a Fisher Space Bullet Pen. It is the perfect size when closed (3.7 inches), normal pen size when open, and of course it writes at any angle, but the clip is a slip-on type and "grabs" the pen at a point that causes the pen to stick out of the wallet just slightly. The wallet is 4 3/4 inches long. Also, the pen tends to be a little slippery in my hand.
So I'm shpping for a pen. Is anyone using the Rotring offered by DavidCo? Does it write at all angles? Suggestions for other pens?
Seems very mundane, I know, but I enjoy note taking throughout the day and a good pen is critical, but its gotta fit the wallet. Thanks.
