This Note–Taking System Turns You Into An Efficiency Expert

Note–taking is a skill not easily acquired. In the hands of an artist, designer, or Hollywood serial killer (à la Seven's John Doe), an idea–crammed notebook can even become a rarified, and in the case of the latter, creepy, object all on its own. Too often, however, the ability to take comprehensive, ruminative, or even attractive notes and sketches is conflated with simply buying a stylish book of paper, say from Moleskine or Field Notes. Wrong. The most important step to keeping a great notebook is organization. No one knows that better than web designer Ryder Carroll. After a decade of development, he has just released a system for note–taking that promises to change the way you work and play, or at least the way you record doing so. The first thing you notice about the Bullet Journal notebook is...no physical notebook. Carroll's project can be adapted to any and all blank paper formats. It uses bullets and several other graphic markers, like circles and dots, to differentiate kinds of notes. You begin with the name of the month. From there, you just add variables, such as an index and checklists, until you have a comprehensive, highly customized and organized notebook of your own.Read Full Story     Continue reading at 'Fast Company'
