For most of the last 2 years I’ve taken any notes on my reading by hand. I figure that if a quote or thought isn’t worth the time it takes to write it down by hand then it’s not worth keeping track of. Far too many digital tools make capture so easy that we have to wade through 99% mundane information to get to the stuff that matters.

Today I’m going to walk you through the process I use to take my notes, and index what I read about so that I can find it later.
