In this video, Tom Solid discusses how to take better digital notes and the advantages of different methods and tools for note-taking. He explains the importance of understanding one’s note-taking preferences and how to leverage collected information for maximum benefit.
Tom highlights the various note-taking preferences and methods that people use, such as handwriting note-taking apps and typed notes. He emphasizes the importance of being able to find and leverage information later on, and the advantages of using digital tools over physical paper notebooks. Tom also introduces the I-COR framework, a tool-agnostic approach to note-taking and productivity, and shares his preference for using the Day One app for personal journaling.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understanding your personal note-taking preferences is crucial for efficiency, whether it is handwriting, using a keyboard, or a mix of both.
  • Handwriting note-taking apps, such as GoodNotes and Notability, allow for text conversion, global search, and cloud storage, making information more easily accessible and searchable.
  • The I-COR framework, taught in the Paperless Movement, helps users understand what notes to take, where to store them, and how to find them later on.
  • For businesses and teams, having a single source of truth, such as a project management tool (e.g., ClickUp or Notion), is essential for effective communication, decision-making, and knowledge management.
  • Tom recommends using the Day One app for personal journaling, as it offers various features, including the ability to resurface past memories and highlights.
