Cornell Notes

I know. I drone on about digital notes and apps like Obsidian and DEVONthink. But, I also love writing on paper. I always have. I was the weird kid in high school using graph paper to take notes and it’s not much different today.

My preferred style of note is the Cornell method. I learned this by accident in college. Through trial and error I started dividing my pages into the the primary note body and the meta data sections and then I discovered that there’s actually paper designed for this purpose.

Today I purchased a bunch of Levenger Luxe legal evidence pads. These look gorgeous. I typically roll with and manually divide up my pages but adding the guide lines will just make everything easier.

It also strikes me that this might be one of the biggest problems I have with plain text file formats. I like margins.
