I met a gentleman in the coffee shop this morning that is also a practitioner of GTD (first clue was the Ready for Anything book on the table), and has an interesting method of implementation for GTD, his is almost all Moleskine compared to my Palm. He uses a large quad-ruled Moleskine notebook for all of his notes, using the Cornell method diary style. He uses a large weekly Moleskine desk planner for his calendar with an address book and phone list taped into the back. He keeps all of his projects and next action lists on 4x6 index cards, color coded by context. As we spoke about it, he noted that he realized that he was spending so much time “tinkering with toys” that he need to simplify and this is how he did it. He also still carries a Palm, but hardly ever uses it and said he will likely take it out of his bag next time he cleans it.
I might have to think about this, it seems like it works well for him.
