The Charting Method: How to take notes

  1. Determine the columns you'll need. e.g. date/event/impact/pros & cons, etc. The average amount of columns is usually between 4 and 6.
  2. Create a document title on the top of the page.
  3. Label your columns with the name of your categories.
  4. Start note-taking. Write out each fact under its relevant column. Keep it concise by using abbreviations, shortcuts, and your own personal code devices.
