Top 5 Reasons YOU Need a Hipster PDA

In todays fast paced, go go go world everyone needs some kind of “pda” type system/devise. There are many electronic PDA organizers, Smart phones and even mini computers that promise to help you get and stay organized and keep everything in order so why on earth would someone chose to use a paper version? Something you can’t sink between your mobile devise, work computer and macbook pro?? There are many reasons and here are the TOP 5 Reasons why YOU need a Hipster PDA.

1. You can truly take it anywhere (except the shower and well a electronic pda cant go into the shower either) and you don’t need to worry about cords, cables, batteries or “stylus”
2. It won’t die on you when you need it most.

3. By nature It’s small, thin, flat, and can be customized to any size you wish, with many different internal and external color and template options.

4. It’s simple and effective- write it down, do it, cross it out. DONE

5. It doesn’t and will never become obselete and or need “updates” after 2 months

A guide to making a Traditional Hipster PDA

The Hipster PDA is a fully extensible system for coordinating incoming and outgoing data for any aspect of your life and work. It scales brilliantly, degrades gracefully, supports optional categories and “beaming,” and is configurable to an unlimited number of options. Best of all, the Hipster PDA fits into your hip pocket and costs practically nothing to purchase and maintain.

Building your first Hipster PDA
1.get a bunch of 3″x5″ file cards
2.clip them together with a binder clip
3. there is no step 3

Consider picking up some different kinds of cards—different colors, lined and unlined.
Personally, I like the really small binder clips and a stack of 12 or fewer cards; experiment for the combination that suits you
Try using a single different-colored card as a visual separator between used and fresh cards in your stack (helps you from accidentally giving someone an old, written-on note)
Let me know how yours turns out and dont worry if you mess up or dont like how it came out you can start over….

GTD (getting things done) with my Levenger hPDA

It has been a few days since i switched from a regular old clipped together hPDA (Hispster PDA) to my Levenger shirt pocket briefcase hPDA, besides the new system being more ascetically pleasing it seems to be more effective. I have been more productive and organized, wow! what a difference such a little thing makes.

I believe this system is working better for me because there are 3 separate areas to store my note cards, instead of sifting through a few to find what i need i just go right to the compartment they are in. If you are struggling to stay organized and be productive i think you should look into hPDA’s, if you have one already and it isn’t as effective has you had hoped it would be trying rearranging it, finding a way to separate your different sections, it is a small change that goes along way. If you find your self reading this and have no idea what i am talking about drop me a message or a comment and i can gladly explain in more detail.

The red color is not my favorite but for the price i cannot complain.

I LOVE Moleskines and you will 2

Although the name may be confused with a generic term for Moleskin the Moleskine i am referring to is a brand of notebook manufactured by the Italian Moleskine company. The most popular Moleskine is bound in oilcloth-covered cardboard, with an elastic band to hold the notebook closed and a sewn spine that allows it to lie flat when open. There are many other styles ranging from address books to calender planners and even City books with info on many of the worlds greatest cities.

For two centuries Moleskine has been the legendary notebook of artists, writers, intellectuals and travelers. Vincent van Gogh and Ernest Hemingway are two famous users. Beyond the fame of these great little notebooks comes the durability. Moleskine notebooks have proven they can withstand the trials of travel and abuses that ensues from normal use.

Moleskines work great with Hipster PDA’S, as hipster PDA’s, daily journals, expense records, day to day notes and more. They help you stay organized and with the strap and pocket they keep essentials together

Check out this instructables post for a great moleskine hack http://www.instructables.com/id/EPSBV5ALHREUE0JARM/

They also can be found at Barnes and Noble and Borders Bookstores.
