Hmmm. so I often use a normal old yellow legal block. Not necessarily as a bullet journal, but for notes, writings, projects, reviews, etc. I think the Bu Jo index could be useful. Could create an index on the last page or even on the cardboard back. Page number and indexes removed. Demolished pages are not indexed. I do not know if it is important, but it occurred to me. If you make a list and it gets out of control and you create a terribly illegible scribble, just rip that sheet off and rewrite it. Try doing it in a $40 newspaper. Your legal block is a notepad, a doodle box, a time management system, and a coaster that costs less than a latte.
If you leave it in a Lyft, don`t panic. Just take another notepad out of a drawer and move on. No competition: We`d be remiss if we didn`t mention that Rocketbook laptops and our legal pad, the Rocketbook Orbit, would do well in Catetgory 1 and Catetgory 2. Our reusable pages make notes intimidating because you can delete and start over at any time. What`s more, the Rocketbook app allows you to easily scan and save notes online, so you never run the risk of accidentally losing or offending a page full of valuable ideas. Dozens of well-meaning consultants have YouTube videos explaining their to-do list systems and offering personalized journals for $30 on Kickstarter, and I was deeply addicted to all of them. For one minute. I always come back to the simplest tool of all: the list. No four-part system.
No productivity philosophy. Just a list of frikkin`. There are three categories that we will use to fairly evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each competitor. (1) How effective is it right now?: Here`s how well the note-taking tool does its job once you`ve written down your ideas. (2) How effective is it in the future?: This takes into account the usefulness of the tool over time, including its durability and the ease with which it is possible to recover old notes. (3) Miscellaneous: This category is primarily an excuse to name the best movies that include legal notebooks and to give advice on how to dazzle a notebook cover, and this is by far the least important category. Of course, not all legal blocks need to be cheap. Here`s a list of high-end notebooks — and two versions of Whackadoodle — for your consideration. Another important aspect of the long-term value of these note-taking tools is the ease with which it is possible to retrieve old notes. The lack of protection of legal towels means that old banknotes are often damaged, even if they are put back in the block. Notebooks aren`t perfect, but their design lends itself to long-term notes with pages that can be easily flipped through for review. Flipping through the pages of a legal block is tedious and just doesn`t seem right.
In fact, one person in our survey of legal pad users complained that they are “convenient in an emergency, but boring in the future.” I`ve written about the value of capturing thoughts and writing notes by hand. It`s worth it. I carry the cheapest notebook in the world every day in my shirt pocket to capture the genie in the blink of an eye, but at my desk, in a meeting, and every time I sit down to get things done, I use a legal block. This is the time of the notebook to shine, it is built for the editor in the long run. In category 1, coverage was a disadvantage, while in category 2, it is the strongest asset of laptops. A legal block, when randomly thrown into a bag, begins to curl up at the ends, making the writing experience extremely unpleasant. The laptop is durable not only in its protection, but also in its design, since the standard one-subject notebook contains about 100 sheets, while the legal block is at a meagre 50. Going back to the boxing metaphor, the legal pads are starting to seem convoluted. In one corner is the famous Legal Pad, a sleek, exceptionally chic and stylish stack of yellow paper with a 1.25-inch edge.
The Legal Pad usually consists of 50 sheets, is lightweight and is mainly used to quickly capture ideas on the fly. Not to mention, he looks cool as hell and is a celebrity in the world of notes, as he stars in every movie that shows a courtship scene. As a writer, I appreciate everyone`s effort to write long prose passages, but it`s probably not necessary. If you have a good idea while leading to a meeting, simply write down the gist of the idea to fully remember it when you arrive.
