I never abandoned my paper agenda and take great pleasure in visiting a certain New York City department store to purchase one (the same style--a week at a glance--in the same brown leather) to prepare for the next calendar year. It's a post-Thanksgiving, sometimes post-Christmas ritual. How ritualistic can you get when you commit your life to a bunch of apps, unless you consider updating an app or buying a new device a ritual (I don't).
