One Weird Trick I Do That Makes My Note-Taking Superhuman

Hey there!

Well, that is a pretty click-bait-y kind of title, isn’t it?

It would be if it wasn’t really true. But what I’m going to share with you today is something that I’ve used for the last several years to really move me from knowing something to doing something about it.

And it has to do with the way I take notes, and what I do that’s the reverse of what most people do.

Hope this helps!

  1. Brilliant! I will do this, so simple, yet so effective. My husband is going to love this too! Thank you David.

  2. I love this idea. Can’t tell you how much time I’ve wasted going back through notes looking for stars or underlines or boxes (I’ve done all three, and sometimes mix them up) looking for the stuff I wanted to follow up with from sessions I’ve taken!! And making that box – also fantastic – so simple, but I love me a ticky box where I can put that check mark!

  3. Yes, yes, yes! So simple but I can see how this will be hugely helpful in studying my notes. I am going to start taking notes on everything I watch including your little videos.

  4. Fantastic! I wish I knew this years ago. It would have been so helpful. I can’t wait to start using this idea! Thank you, David!

  5. This is a great idea. I’ve always put a circle in the left margin of the page and been happy when I can put a check box in it but I think your right that it causes me to clutter my mind as I go back and review. I’m anxious to try this and see if it’s problematic for me to have the “task” separated from the notes that I took prior to and after my thought of it. Do you know what I mean?
