I was looking back at some blog posts in the week and spotted this one. It was all about my new found analogue toy – a bullet journal – which was coupled with a very cool pen.
But I did mention that I was using an ‘app’ called Bear.
The bear has eaten my bullet journal. I no longer use the little black book. My notes are now almost entirely taken in the app – which syncs on my macbook, ipad pro and iphone. I can add lists, notes, pictures and clippings. It is all cross referenced and easily searchable.
I have, in the past, struggled with letting go of the paper. But this app is perfect for the way I work. I do occasionally scribble notes – but tend then to scan these into PDF and save them digitally.
I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try an alternative to the humble notebook. It is way better, in my view, than OneNote.
2018 is my challenge year to go totally paperless! Bears, it seems, don’t just shit in the woods.
