Many freelancers and self-employed people don’t have the paperless office on their agenda, but it could be so simple. In this series, I’ll show you how paperless goes.

As a freelancer or entrepreneur, you have to keep a lot of things in mind, but what if you, like me, belong to the forgettable kind of people? A digital notepad is recommended in this case.

There are many products for writing digital notes, such as the Apple iPad (Pro), various E-Ink tablets and also smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note series.

Through a colleague from my full-time job as a web designer, I discovered Remarkable’s e-ink tablet. When my colleague gave me the tablet for testing, I was particularly surprised by the immediate feedback of the pen input on the display. I already know stylus and their delay in writing through my Galaxy Note 10. But the Remarkable does not have such a delay.

Shortly afterwards I also bought the Remarkable and now I use the tablet for my notes, my BulletJournal and also for my full-time work. Remarkable advertises that writing on the tablet feels like on real paper and so I feel it, with a big advantage: You don’t have to press up, you just let the pen slide over the display.

In addition to my new toy, the Remarkable, I also have, as mentioned above, the Galaxy Note 10, with which I can also quickly write shopping lists, notes, to-dos from a conversation on the hallway and, in addition, I can sign any document on my Note 10 without having to print it. Just Paperless.

With the Note 10, however, i am bothered by the delay in writing, because the Galaxy Note 10 does not come close to the speed of the Remarkable.

All in all, writing notes, creating BulletJournals is extremely fun on digital paper and it’s protecting the environment. In addition, as a bonus point, you have your notes on both devices in the cloud, so you have them with you even if the devices are not present.

That’s it for Part 1 of this series about the digital office, in the next part it’s all about money and the digital business account.
