One of the most important productivity aids is some form of capturing device to hold on to information and free the mind for other thoughts. Trying to remember bits of information which can easily be stored elsewhere is not the most efficient way to use the mind. It is said that the brain can only hold on to about seven items at any time. Storing data will quickly use up mental RAM.
The best capturing device is still the humble note pad, together with a pen or pencil, small enough to fit into a pocket, easy to retrieve, and quick to use. here you will find inspiration for some capturing devices which will make their use more pleasant, add some other useful features, and may even reduce waste. And can there be a more fun way to spend a rainy afternoon than with paper, scissors and glue?
This is not a set of instructions, just lots of inspiration, though you can glean a fair amount of how-to from the photos.
