”What’s 43 Folders?”
43Folders.com is Merlin Mann’s website about finding the time and attention to do your best creative work.

Where can I buy pre-made 43 folder tickler system?

I'm lazy. Has anyone ever found Avery labels or pre-cut and labelled tickler files, or has everyone just made thier own?

If you really don't feel...

If you really don't feel like making one, you can try one of those accordion files from Office Depot or Staples or wherever, and there are some that have the days all on them. Most of the ones I've seen, though, are alphabetical. The disadvantage to this method is that you can't put "today" at the front like you can with a traditional Tickler File.

I use two accordion files from an office store. One of them is monthly, the other is numbered 1-31. This makes a perfectly good tickler file (with the exception, of course, that you can't put "today" at the front). I find in practise that I don't use it that much, but that's because of it being a physical tickler file, rather than because of it being accordion files.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
