Life Editor’s Picks: My Favorite Pens

I owe much of my success to my obsessive color-coding habits, which thrive thanks to my ever-growing collection of pens.

Felt pens, highlighters, ballpoint pens, needle tip, and more. Every project I tackle gets assigned its own color, and tasks relating to that project are written on the same color sticky notes in my planner and editorial calendar.

When I finish a task, I throw away the sticky note and write the completed item in my planner/calendar with a pen in the same color.

I’m able to see the status of all my projects at a glance and determine where I need to focus next. A good pen set has at least 8 useable colors and won’t buckle or jam under my heavy pressure writing.

Ready to up your color-coding game?

Here are the top picks for my favorite pens.
