Note-Taking Workflow

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.

Capturing Engaging Content

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.

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.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
