I was going to buy a black Metropol, but still had some money left over from my birthday, so I finally chose a cherry personal Classic and eagerly awaited its arrival. I had only vaguely heard of Filofax before as they were something that the Yuppies used to use, and I have a suspicion that the relatively high price (compared with your average notebook) would have put me off previously. However, it made sense for me to set up my GTD system in something that was:
- Something nice to help encourage me to use it.
I think that it was around that time that I finally 'got' Philofaxy. What a revelation that there was a product that suited my needs so well, and that there was a community of like-minded people out there. I have always loved stationery, but it's generally been something people have made fun of, so it was wonderful to find others like me. In 2012, I contacted Steve to ask if they were interested in having another contributor join the team and was thrilled when the answer came back with a 'yes'. I don't contribute as often as I'd like to (life seems to get in the way sometimes), but I love writing posts for the site and feel very grateful for being part of such a friendly and supportive online community.
