I was wondering, if the creation of great notes is worth the effort.
- When I read, I like to take notes about the information, that I want to memorize in my memory palaces.
- I read, that it is better for memorisation and understanding, when notes are taken by hand.
- I already tried different things: note taking software, mind maps, sketchnotes, note taking with different colours …
The question now is, does it really matter how you take notes or how great (visually) they are? I mean, at the end of the day the information will end up in one of my memory palaces. So I feel like it would be enough, when I throw the information / notes in some kind of software. That way I always can access the information for memorizing. That is not possible with notes on paper, as I got to have them with me.
What do you think about that? How do you take notes?
