Moleskine Mess

Moleskine Mess

  • Comments 1
I have a confession to make. While I've really enjoyed taking notes in my Moleskine notebook, I have to be honest with myself. This thing is a complete and utter mess. While I've felt pretty creative in my note taking, going back over the stuff I've written has been very difficult. My best strategy has been to take some notes and copy those notes back into OneNote. Still, I can see that (the way I work anyway) over time this isn't going to scale very well at all. The funny thing is, I actually feel sort of bad about this because the community around this product is so cool.

So, I'm going to go back to using my FranklinCovey planner to review and sketch out my day and I'll go back to taking some notes in the DRE section, with separate pages and tabs for project notes. I'll keep the Moleskine around for artsy stuff I think, but for work I'm going to have to stick with the system I've used for the last 6 years or so. :)

What I think I really want is a good, straightforward way to use OneNote from any computer that I might be on. There are a number of options for that including sending e-mail to myself to paste into OneNote and just putting a notebook up on a share somewhere and accessing it over the network. I think I would really like a blog-like way to send notes to a OneNote notebook. I'll play around with this and post if I find out anything interesting.

  • Folder redirection + offline files is the way to go for OneNote. My notebook is available from any computer on our network, *and* it's available offline on my notebook.
