I came across the J.D system through Jackson Dame’s newsletter, and have to say I’m intrigued! I’ve been looking for a method to organise all of my stuff for a while, and love rigorous, structured approaches like this.
One thing that’s preventing me from getting started however, is that I’m wondering how to integrate all the different platforms and tools I use to capture and store thoughts/inspiration/experiments/etc.
For example, I’m planning on buying a house, and so have been making calculations/financial plans in a Google spreadsheet, collecting bits of design inspiration on Pinterest, saving PDF’s provided by the estate agents of houses I’ve visited in my Finder (Mac), sharing some documents with my girlfriend through Google Drive, yadda yadda yadda Not to mention paper-based design ideas or sketches…
So basically, my question is: how would you go about consolidating the info stored across all of these platforms, tools and media? I’ve been thinking about storing as much as possible in folders on my Mac or in the cloud, even images from Pinterest, but this perhaps defeats the purpose of such tools.
I’m curious to hear any thoughts on this!
