Handwritten Code for Todos
I feel like I have tried every single app, software or digital tool on the market for productivity and todo lists, but I always end up going back to the tried and true pen and paper solution.

Dots for bullet points, circles for high priority, one slash for in progress and a X for completed tasks. I might have to order a pack of the Swedish Camo notebooks.
I’m gonna try out this ‘code’. Except I don’t actually need to buy a notebook - I’ll just implement it in the notepad I’ve used for years. :-)
