I appreciate the suggestion, Steve. I think the problem is, apart from just laziness, that when the going gets tough, and I have 4-5 (or even more) extremely busy days, if the system is fragile (such as needing me to do too much manual input), it falls apart, and it’s unlikely that I go back to fix it. Somehow inertia sets in, or I don’t know what it is.

The way Roam automatically generates a blank new page every day and pushes the other days down somehow encourages me to maintain the discipline and even to go back and reconstruct missed days.

There is also something calming and optimistic about how each new day just offers a new hope of getting things under control or having another go at trying to get organised.

This Reddit post captures the feeling well:
