Improving my Note-taking Using Mark Up

Improving my Note-taking Using Mark Up — Gareth Jones

My handwriting is atrocious. Seriously. It’s really scrawny and it gets worse as I try to quickly scribble down important snippets of information often making it nearly impossible for me to read and decipher at a later date. I’ve also favoured using notepads to take notes which creates a stack of unorganised loose sheets of A4 paper with no real order to them. It’s very chaotic to say the least! I have therefore decided to try taking notes using "mark up" that will allow me to systematically make readable notes that will be useful when I come to refer back to them at a later date.

Gareth goes on to explain how he landed on creating his own note taking markup system. As I’ve said before, the best system is the one that works for you. If you can’t find it — create it.
