Hi Sam,

In his 1963 book about study methods, Edgar Wright makes distinction between note taking and note making. Note taking is what happens when we're quickly capturing content to refer back to it later while we're listening. Note making on the other hand is when we generate ideas, like when reading. This is when we form our own ideas and insights based on the information we encounter. It's the process of connecting the dots, or plotting new ones. In BuJo, one of the most meaningful things we can do is make notes, and there are several ways how:

Information. Throughout our days we might take note of a lot of information about the world, your work, your family. Perhaps you'd make a note about a new idea that results, questions to revisit or develop, or your reaction to that information.

Dedicated note collection. If there are many related notes, you might start a collection. This might be taking notes on a book you're reading, meeting notes at work, a home project, or client notes you are tracking. Again, going further, you could make notes about how your reading connects to another book, a possible new marketing strategy sparked from a comment, or new insight about client behavior or relationship.

Feelings. So much can happen in a day. As moments pass, you might take note of an emotion rising. Then, you could make a note  about reasons why you might feel that way.. 

Are there ways note taking or making has enhanced your Bullet Journal practice? Tag us on Instagram @bulletjournal to join the conversation.

Happy Bullet Journaling!
