How To Take Good Notes

How To Take Good Notes

This is is part of my live-learning series! I will be updating this post as I continue through my journey. I apologize for any grammatical errors or incoherent thoughts. This is a practice to help me share things that are valuable without falling apart from the pressure of perfection. 

I’ve always loved taking notes. I’m trying to think when it really hit. But I would write so much. I love making bullet points. I love deciding the hierarchy, especially on the fly. I love synthesizing information. 

I’ve larger graduated on to typing on a computer and speaking but writing will always have a spot in my heart. And an invaluable, specific purpose.

Best Note-Taking Applications



Microsoft OneNote

Google Docs

Zapier has a great list of note-taking apps

Audio Notes

Recorder by Google

Free on Android. Local transcription and analysis. Limited features. Lots of opportunities to grow with power of Google behind it. 

Video Notes

These are definitely not note-taking apps but an easy way to record video to store and manage them better. This is a great example of the technology needed but not the focus of helping people with actual note-taking. 


“Say it with video. The expressiveness of video with the convenience of messaging. Communicate more effectively wherever you work with Loom.”


Video to Close the Distance. Keep a human connection with customers and coworkers when you can’t be there in person. Vidyard is the best way to add video into your emails, website, and everywhere else.


“Let your videos do the work. Video marketing software that makes it easy to find, engage, and grow your audience.” 


Famous Note Takers

  • Lewis and Clark
  • Thomas Edison
  • Leondardo Da Vinci

Personal Knowledge Management

Capturing and managing information for yourself. This is important in professional and personal life.
