Swipe File — January 20, 2016

This is an excerpt from professor and author Alan Jacobs' My Year in Tech. In 2015, he said goodbye to his smartphone and committed everything to paper.

Writing By Hand. I have always kept a notebook around for jotting down the occasional idea, but in the past year I have learned to rely on paper for sketching and drafting almost all of my writing, and for managing my tasks.

After years of oscillating among a wide range of task-management apps and systems on my computer, I now handle all planning and to-doing in my notebook, using a variation on the Bullet Journal method. This change is another one I wish I had made years ago: my thinking is clearer, my writing stronger and more precise.

Look for more on the Bullet Journal soon. Have a great day!
