My main concern, however, is that this system, as traditionally deployed, cannot keep up with the complexity and volume of demands that define many modern knowledge work jobs, where the sheer volume of tasks you must juggle, or calendar events in a typical week, might overwhelm any attempt to exist entirely within a world of concise and neatly transcribed notebook pages.
Cal therefore recommends some modifications:
- Introduce weekly plans
- Time block daily plans
- Maintain a deep work tally
- Augment the notebook with a calendar and master task list
- Integrate email
I might just try this!
