Note-Taking Workflow

Notetaking is the process where we identify the critical information, interpret said information in order to increase memory and practice critical thinking.

A note-taking workflow is where you can seamlessly turn raw ideas from different source and platforms into well-crafted text documents without having to recall everything from the cited sources.

People's note-taking workflow may vary.

How to create a meaningful note-taking system

Capturing Engaging Content

It is important to have content that's engaging to yourself because you'll be able to easily recall the information.

Information can come from many different sources from audiobooks to podcasts and even conversations with friends.

There are two tools you can use to capture content, personally I use Kindle and Instapaper, but you can always look for a read-it-later app that fits you best.

Connecting Tools

After capturing the ideas you've taken from your sources, the next step is to compile the ideas taken into one place to mix and remix the important ideas.

Apps like Readwise and Roam Research are reliable. How it works is that the highlighted content is automatically imported into Readwise and then exported to Roam Research where the captured knowledge intermingles.

Creation Tools

One of the best ways to learn something is to teach it or explain it to someone else, or maybe even to yourself.

You can publish what you've learned online as well, like with the platform Ghost -- it's a blogging-first publishing platform where you can share the ideas you've developed with everyone else.
