One of the gifts I gave the High School staff at our first team meeting a month ago was a Moleskine journal. I’ve been enjoying mine for a couple of months
, and the team each got one to dabble in, too. The Others (yes, like LOST) in the office have been making fun of the 10 of us running around with journals, but I think secretly they’re jealous. Here’s the fun part – the team has had fun decorating them and Ryanne even has a chopstick holder inside her front cover for her pen. Brilliant!
I’ve learned to keep one page folded down with my “to do” list, and I’ve definitely enjoyed taking notes and having something offline to take to meetings. Of course, they are only as good as the person using them, so you have to deliver, not just write stuff down. Thinking about getting one? Here’s how to set one up, and here’s how to hack one.
