Keeping on top of things with Behance.
Although much of my work is spent pounding away at my keyword, I still always need a pad or notebook by my side to jot down notes or make to-do lists.
Behance makes great, well designed paper products for just those kinds of tasks. Their books, pads, and cards are designed to help you be more efficient by giving you places to take notes and as well keep track of action items. Of course, the best of part of the process s being able to cross them out when you're done.
The whole product line is really well thought out. Behance even supplies you with a productivity philosophy called the "Action Method" to help you accomplish the tasks that you write down. It's a little like the principles in David Allen's "Getting Things Done" books. I really appreciate that each product comes with a pamphlet which explains what you just bought and how to use their method. Their website is loaded with information about the method and their products, and related features on creativity. It also allows you to leave comments on the same page as the product.
The Action pad is $8 and can be purchased on www.behance.com.
