Some weeks I need my Moleskin.
I need to physically write things down, bullet lists of to do’s that I can check off as I go.
For some reason, it just doesn’t work the same when I do it on the iPhone. I’ve tried all the apps, some of them very good. But I end up feeling more overwhelmed, instead of more focused.
During Dad’s illness and recovery period, it was my go-to for information ranging from his Rx list to Dr. contact information to lists of what I needed to handle and ideas of how to do it.
It’s not a big Moleskin. It’s one that will fit in my pocket, one which will allow a pen to be held when it’s kept closed by the elastic closure thingy.
When things are going along pretty smoothly, I don’t need it. I keep up with things in my head or on my calendar.
But when things get hectic, as this week’s going to be, I grab it and start writing. It’ll be in my pocket the whole week, keeping me focused, keeping me comfortable, like a blankie.
What helps you be focused and comfortable during hectic or stressful weeks?
