The 5th anniversary edition Traveler's Notebook is way too attractive not to get. But how am I gonna carry everything in it including my GTD index cards which I normally put into my mind.Depositor? Well first, if you don't know how to put 4 notebooks into the leather cover, check out this previous post.
To put the 4 stacks of GTD index cards (next actions, project, waiting for and someday) into the notebook, first you use 2 pieces of thick paper cut to the size of the notebook refill cover, then insert them to one of the elastic bands just like you normally would do with a notebook refill. This will give you 4 pages/placeholders for the index cards. You can make the index cards more accessible by reducing the width of each page, the first page being the narrowest and so forth.
The rest is just easy, using binder clips to clip each stack of index cards onto the corresponding pages. If you are like me looking for more stylish way to use the clips, check out my previous post about how to make these Leather GTD Tabs.
Perhaps you've noticed an extra notebook on top of my Traveler's Notebook in the first image. It is a Moleskine weekly diary I need constant access to, I customized to make it likable together with Traveler's Notebook. Next year however, I don't need to do that anymore coz Midori is going to release a weekly refill in the format I like most - weekly diary on the left page, note space on the right! Can't wait for the 2012 weekly diary coming out, which will be around September 2011.
