When I’m working, I like to listen to all varieties of music. Today, Fabrizio Paterlini’s Autumn Stories has suited my mood. Soft, contemplative, ambient piano melodies. They’ve been perfect for creating the forward-thinking, yet reflective atmosphere in the office today. 😉

Last year I came across the Bullet Journal technique. It’s billed as an analog journal for the digital world. It is a combination of rules that my make my work journals into efficient daily organizers and quick references for days and months in the future.
