A Web Designer's Note-Taking System to Stay Organized

(Video Link)

When I arrive at work, the first thing  do is create a to-do list, combing through my Outlook email, calendar and task entries. When I get home, I create another to-do list.

This system keeps me organized, but it's not as sophisticated as Ryder Carroll's Bullet Journal system. Mr. Carroll uses a simple blank journal every month. He builds in a calendar and index page and manages his task list with shape-coded bullets.

Do you use a similar system? How do you stay organized?

That's pretty complicated. I use a moleskine journal with the following simple system: the page on the left is for notes, the page on the right is for things to do. Every day gets a "spread" of left and right. If I fill up the page with things to do - that signals to me that I'm putting too much on my plate and that a lot of the stuff I want to accomplish are probably trivial "make works". One moleskine a month.

The left-hand side being reserved for notes is pretty useful - this lets me scan the pages quickly for notes.
