If you read my personal blog you may have heard it has been all change on the job front lately. That meant: new diary. Awkward time to start a new diary (and 2012 diaries despite being in the sales aren’t that cheap). You can get diaries made to start anytime for various durations. Custom made diaries, while a nice idea and look good, not necessarily the best idea for everyone and have a price tag attached.
I use a Filofax for the planning my year element of my life – what I am doing when. My diary I use for working out what I am doing in the day, keeping key information, it is sort of like a to do list really.
I need to call xyz. In the diary I will write the number to call any reference I require and then it is there ready to go when I have time to do it or when they are open. Additionally if I do not get through or have to call back I have the information handy, if they give me more information I can write it down there and then to refer back to later.
I like having the space and freedom to write, so I have just started a new diary in an a4 sized case bound notebook. A printable calendar stuck in the front cover and I just write the dates on the pages as I go through each day. simple. This diary is concerned about the now and the retention and availability of information, not future events.
Do you have multiple diaries with multiple uses? Share in the comments.
