Today is day 2 of the great restart. I thought I would share a couple of pages from my notebook. I'm adapting the bullet journal concept to fit my needs. First off, I hope to use time every morning to plan out my actions during my discretionary time. Today is pretty wide open, so I … Continue reading Note taking
I've not blogged for a while. Sometimes real life gets in the way. But, here is a short update. I've made a decision to commit more to planning and organizing my stuff. To that end, I'm changing my notebook use from Field Notes for bullet journaling to a Clairefontaine My Essentials dot grid A5 notebook. … Continue reading ReStart!
Just a few shots from along the way.
Here are just a few photos from the first day of our travels in Vietnam. After about 10 hours of travel, visas and immigration, we didn't have much time to tour but we spent some time at the Hao Lo prison.

I thought I would make a post to share my current (evolving) planner set-up. I want to make sure I can always have the tools I need accessible at all times in order to be most effective, but I don’t want too much stuff. My first posts in this blog showed a traditional sized traveler’s … Continue reading Planner Set-up
The New Year brings about a desire to be better. Rather than focus on such a monumental task, I choose to focus on only 1 value in my life for the first month of the new year - Solitude. Solitude for me is a focused time of contemplation and faith in attaining my worthy goals. … Continue reading Focusing On What’s Most Important
Can there be anything more trite than the title of this post? I do think it looks classier with the extra E added to Old. Don't you? Hundreds or perhaps even thousands of bloggers, writers, talkers and doers are saying or thinking the same thing. Many of us are glad to turn the metaphorical page … Continue reading Out With The Olde and In With The New
