Ryder Carroll’s clever looking system and structure for keeping notes, tasks, ideas, and events in a physical notebook journal. (Reminds me a little bit of Patrick Rhone’s Dash/Plus System.)

One thing I miss about keeping my tasks, notes, and ideas in a physical journal is that perspective I’d get when looking over past pages. When pages and pages are filled with tasks that were once written down and are now crossed out, you get the sense that life has been lived. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the little things we do every day help slowly inch us towards our bigger goals and dreams. A digital task manager doesn’t quite give that same satisfying and somewhat nostalgic perspective.
