If you’ve read Using Index Cards to Figure Out My Dreams, you’ll know that I tried using index cards for my note taking fever. I have a wide range of interests, so I thought that index cards that I can shuffle and rearrange would be better than cramming my notebooks with a jumble of different interests. However, that experiment made me realize that the notebook way was better.
I realized I like the notebook format because I can bring my notebook wherever I want without fearing that the information will be disarranged.
The most compelling thing that attracted me to index cards was that I could reshuffle them and create new connections between different sets of information. However, I realized that I can do this by simply rereading my notes, and then making new notes about any connections or insights that I gain.
So that’s the new game plan. If you have any note taking tips, feel free to leave a comment!
