Note taking

Record the essence of information from different sources and platforms, and free your mind from having to recall everything.
I’m only interested in electronic/ digital methods in here.


Very interesting methods of taking notes
> Put a date on every entry
> Use a consistent format so that you can easily go back and find something
> Use a horizontal separator line and a project name to separate individual subjects (music, theorem proving, language research)
> Different kinds of entries, each with a special symbol in the margin:
> remarks, questions, definitions, to do items, Meta-Remarks…
> Keep a separate To-Do-List, or put it in a special place. Don’t scatter todos throughout your notebook
