Taking notes - The blank sheet

Taking notes - The blank sheet

The best way to get more out of books is by taking notes with the blank sheet method.

  • Before reading a book, write down what you know about the subject using a mind map.
  • When you finish a reading session, add to the map with a different colour.
  • Review the page before you start your next reading session.
  • When you're done reading, bind the sheets and review them periodically.

When you use this method, you will literally see your knowledge grow as you add new information. You'll start to connect ideas across disciplines and develop your own ideas.

If you want to improve what you get out of reading, you have to choose great books.

Write in the margins of your book. You bought it. It's your property.

Reading the words on a page or screen is the easy part. The problem is that this is often the only way we learn to read.

One of the benefits of reading is that you can master the best of what other people discovered.

You will instantly know if you picked up a good book. It is well written, packed with ideas and insights and is well organised. Naturally, you will want to read the next page.
