Moleskine temptation

In my time as a GTD lurker, I've seen countless posts, comments and articles written about the indispensable Moleskine notebook. This intriguing little product, known as the "notebook of Hemingway", really seems to have captured the imagination of the productivity-obsessed. Brip Blap was recently converted to the religion of Moleskine (while I've Paid For This Twice Already... had her own take on the tools of an organized mind).

While browsing Lifehacker today, I saw their link to Mike Rohde's custom Moleskine planner, which really piqued my interest. Mike has taken a simple ruled Moleskine notebook, and completely customized it as a weekly planner. This approach just seems so elegant, that I am really tempted to try this myself. It's more than a little work to put this together, but it looks so slick, I think it would be worth it.

Methinks I'll be putting a ruled Moleskine notebook on my Christmas list this year.

Don't get a Moleskine - you'll be addicted, and you'll lose everything just to feed the beast... :)

Seriously, it's worth it, at least from my perspective. It hardly gets 6 feet away from me at any given point of the day, and it's been worth every penny.

thanks for the mention!

I have no desire for a moleskine notebook...but I would love a palm pilot!

Thanks for the mention! My Moleskine hack is working very well 2 years later. I love that I can make it however I like, and tweak it each time I remake it.

Hope it works out for you too. :-)
