Staying Updated One Page a Day


One of my goals this year is to stay updated as much as possible on current events. When I received my 2017 Moleskine daily planner in the mail, I realized that one page had more space than I needed. I thought about how I could make the most out of the planner. Then an idea sparked in my head: use the remaining space to summarize news articles from that day. I figured it was an easy way to keep myself in check, and it is also like my own little history book from 2017!

My friends and family were surprised when they saw my planner, saying "What do you write in here?!" My good friend Isaac flipped through it for about fifteen minutes, quizzed me on a summarized article on the UK housing market, and then said, "I should do this for Chinese news." He actually started doing it!

I am happy to say that I have successfully filled a page a day since January 1st with news from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Economist, MarketWatch, Financial Times, and Bloomberg. Read my previous post for more details on the sites I use to check markets.
