Napkin Technology Still Works For Me

By John Jantsch

With all of the fancy new PDAs, phones and Web 2.0 services out there to help you plan, capture and organize your world, I find that I still like the feel of paper.

From the moment I started my business over 20 years ago, I began carrying Moleskine pocket notebooks around in with me so that I could capture ideas, phrases, song titles – whatever hit me – before it evaporated back into wherever it came from.

Today, most of my blog posts originate from one of those notes. I encourage every business owner I meet (really everyone I meet) to keep this kind of journal tool handy as a way to jot down their ideas. If anything, business and marketing is really about creating and implementing creative ideas systematically.

I do love and advocate the advances in technology as a means to automate and facilitate many aspects of business. I just happen to find the little pocket size, no batteries needed, notebook a great way to do it and somehow stay a little more connected to the natural world.
