    LOL. Best response yet.

    I find it interesting so many fellow INTPs answered your call Edahn with nothing but catcalls and quizzical shrugs.

    I don't think they like organizing and compartmentalizing as much as you. Or is that planning?

    But not me, Edahn, oh no. I'll pat you on the back.

    And I'll probably even entertain the idea of trying to make one of these. Carrying a journal and a blackberry are the closest things to a hipster PDA I'll probably get.

    I think having a section for a food journal and money in/out is helpful as well.

    Or 'fleeting gripes' and write down things that annoyed you (tourists stood at top of escalator blocking path) and things that you found funny (homeless man banging pot screaming "GIVE ME SOME MONEY" in Georgetown gets tips like crazy).

    Maybe.

    I'd like to see how long you use it and what changes you make. I used to have an old-school PDA or calendar of sorts but only used it when I worked a retail schedule and then when I worked in sales and had to keep track of my calls/appointments.

    Okay, I think I figured out what is weird to me about this idea (other than the fact that a P is getting so excited about a planner). It's basically like an old school Franklin planner--an organizer without the convenience of stuff being digitally stored. Reminds me of people who wish their cellphones had cords.

    Also reminds me of that page of useless information that would come in the front of a Trapper Keeper--did anyone ever actually refer to that?

    They said it couldn't be done. Some said it shouldn't be done. But I did it. Completely personalized, it will contain all the things I intend to record, and none of the things I will never bother with.

    I printed it all on 3x5s, then hole punched it with a 2 hole puncher. The pink thing is a plastic CD jacket I found in my car. The binder rings open and close so you don't have to sit there turning for 25 minutes.


    Calendar, printing on both sides of the page.


    One of the many custom pages, this one is for driving directions.

    Suck it, Synarch.

    Blackberry (or any cellphone, really): Calendar & appointment reminders
    Hipster PDA: Everything else

    Set up to be loosely based on the GTD system; A for "At Home" , P for "Projects", C for "Calls", I for "Inbox", and E for "Errands".

    In pic #1 we have my grocery list, filed under Errands. Pic #2 shows the snazzy plastic index cards I got at Staples (or Office Max, same difference).

    Workin' pretty good for me so far. Although, pic #1 illustrates quite well sticking point of every organizational system - being organized is not the same thing as being motivated...

    I would lose it within 12 hours. Or carry it around for weeks without using it and leave it behind the first time I really needed it. GJ anyway, though I can't help but think it's just a picking-up-chicks prop. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    It's much to flimsy to pick up chicks. Since I made it, though, I have been using it.
