Oliver Sacks (RIP) used a different colored notebook for each of his ideas. He selected a green notebook to input his notes on philosophy.
Had he grown up a Millennial, his notebook would be his phone. He might use Evernote to categorize his notes in different folders. He might dump them all into the default Notes app on iPhone.
It doesn’t really matter how or where you place your ideas and observations when you’re on the go. The most important thing is to write them down so you can remember them later.
Note-taking is really note-talking, the act of connecting disparate ideas to better understand yourself.
“Each of us constructs and lives a “narrative,” this narrative is us.”Oliver Sacks
