My first week of maintaining the Managing Moments journal with a TUL notebook. Additional information about the TUL discbound notebook system is available here.
I want to share my experiences with the TUL notebook to show some ways of organizing information in the Managing Moments journal. The Managing Moments journal can be maintained in any diary or with electronic tools (Googlesheet, Thortspace, Prezi etc.). The TUL notebook is a versatile and flexible system that allows me to experiment with different formats and share with the Growing Systems of Success community.
As I use the journal, I post in the GSS Daily group. Blog posts will consolidate and synthesize multiple posts. The links to the original Facebook posts are also included in the post as shown below:
Today, I came across the TUL planner and notebook system.
If the kit by tamaala arts was the Minimum Viable Product, TUL notebooks have the potential to be a versatile and flexible notebook system for the Managing Moments journal.
I purchased a 2020 planner but could easily add some sheets and divider to organize the Managing Moments journal for the rest of this year.
The approach can be as simple or as sophisticated as we want. I want to use the TUL system to show the range of approaches possible.
Since I purchased the 2020 planner, I added dividers to create sections for the remaining months of August. I can also use these dividers to continue using the journal beyond 2020. While the initial cost of a TUL notebook is high, it has many advantages. Pages and dividers can be added, re-arranged, and taken out easily. I can choose the type of paper. For example, I find simple paper with a space for title and date at top works better for me than daily calendar pages with date and time for each day.
I also like the TUL task list. I can think of different ways for using this task list in the weekly pages.
If I buy a punch for discbound system, I can add any type of paper (different sizes, index cards etc.). However, the punch is expensive. Thus, I purchased extra sheets with space for title and date at top for the binder. That is enough for what I want to do at this time.
