Military Theory of War, Warfare Theory, Principles of War, Military Strategy, Theories, Theorists Never neglect the psychological, cultural, political, and human dimenstions of warfare, which is inevitably tragic, inefficient, and uncertain.

Then I learned, one by one, a few habits that got me completely organized. Am I perfect? Of course not, and I don’t aim to be. But I know where everything is, I know what I need to do today, I don’t forget things most of the time, and my house is uncluttered and relatively clean (well, as clean as you can get when you have toddlers and big kids running around).

My Journaling System - Resilient Joy Today I journal in one of the three devices I will usually always have at arm's length: my iPhone, iPad or MacBook. I used to have physical journals, but found that the benefits of using a digital journal far outweight having to carry an actual paper book. I would get frustrated having something great to write down but no journal anywhere in sight to capture the idea or the moment! Have you experience that? Or I'd use some random piece of paper only to lose it afterwards. And to complicate things further, writing on a piece of paper would get me distracted because I'd be really picky about my handwriting instead of actually focusing on writing my thoughts and ideas.

Diigo is an online information management tool that can be used to collate, store, bookmark, highlight, and annotate just about anything you come across. There are many online bookmarking programs on the web, but Diigo is a far more powerful tool. It allows you to collaborate ideas and work from numerous different platforms including laptop, iPhone, iPad, Android as well as other online devices. This means that no matter where you are or what device you are using, your research ideas and note taking can be centrally stored. Everyone uses highlighters and sticky notes to annotate text books, and now you can do the same for all of your online research. See more at: by raviii Aug 29

Thanks to all for your comments. I'm looking for writing tools to : - list sources - list interlocutors - store links - write out - plan actions (interviews, ...) - annotate - share All these accessible from anywhere with any terminal (PC, Mac, iPad,...).
