Going back to index cards for tasks

I think I’ll be reverting to index cards to keep track of tasks I need to do, and other random chicken scratch as well, rather than using Notepad on my PalmOne Tungsten E Handheld.

The main reason why I have it is because of its simple and awesome calendar (with the help of DateBk5) and contacts apps. They can hold so much, and I don’t have to write them all out by hand. Oh yeah, I also use MyCheckbook. Those help me keep my life mostly organized. But, I haven’t been as good with keeping tasks under control. I take longer than I should with them on my handheld.

After reading “Getting back to the paper chase“, I don’t need to save a few pennies by using my handheld as much as I can. Index cards are cheap! I just need to utilize whatever is easiest for me to get things done.
