And why this 'fly-catcher' is the single most powerful tool in my arsenal
A pocket notebook, a pen and (so I can geocache anytime/anywhere) a small Swiss army pocketknife with tweezers. That’s all I need. And I agree - while you could use Apple Notes (which, admittedly, has the handy speech-to-text feature) nothing really replaces pen and paper. Really like this post!
Great post! I'm forever catching flies in my own pocket notebook - I'd be at such a loss without it.
Little bit of insight here for me: the power of doodling and making small pictures in your notes. I don't do it often but this speaks to me as to yet another advantage of pen and paper. It can be done with the right mobile device and tools but not necessarily with the same precision. Thanks!
When I saw fly-catcher in the title, I was like, "oh, he must have read Coleridge!" And then I saw you cited my article! It's nice to know my academic work gets read sometimes. More importantly: I'm so happy to have another obsessive note-booker to nerd-out with on Substack :)
