I have a text file open in iA Writer, “Digital planning”. In it is a list of various random thoughts for outlining my collection of digital assets, resources, and so on. At the top I left myself a note:
TRANSFER THIS TO NOTEBOOK — NO MORE PERSONAL NOTES BEGIN DIGITALLY
This idea is compelling still, despite months of inactivity regarding the task. I believe the space between the physical notebook and the subject of the work, the digital objects, will provide the necessary separation for making good decisions towards the goal of maintaining focus and clarity of thought on a regular basis.
