Ryder Caroll one Notebook Migration

Yup this is for last year, but the process is the same according to Ryder. My favourite quote is: “Maybe it’s not you that is bad at sticking to your goals, it’s your goals that are bad at sticking to you”. This idea is echoed in Atomic Habits (review coming) when James Clear says that […]

Why I Use a Bullet Journal Instead of Productivity Software

Most recently it’s been Notion, which looks great and at the same time seems to fall into the same categories you see with so many other applications. Notion lets you build what you want in a productivity tool. Need a calendar, […]
