    How do you keep it light weight?

    When I used paper...

    I used a paper planner for a long time and can tell you what worked for me.

    On my person at all times: UCT
    In my satchel, which was always at hand: planner, Inbox folder, Action support folder

    My planner was set up according to DA's 3-ring binder recommendations: 8 tabs.

    The planner contained:
    1) Calendar
    2) Projects List
    3) Agendas by meeting or person
    4) Next Actions lists by Context
    5) Project Support (if a project required a formal Project Plan, I carried it here)
    6) Reference Material (I carried a coded list of account numbers, birthdays, etc. This section received attention during each Weekly Review to keep it slim.)
    7) Address book
    Inbox - blank paper

    In my desk, I kept my Tickler folder, Project Support files, and Reference files.

    To save space, I kept running text files for such things as Address book.

    New information would be written in by hand, and then the text file was updated during the Weekly Review, with a new printout for the following week. Otherwise, the pages would start to look ugly.
