There are many ways to take notes. Are you a list maker, fan of the Getting Things Done (GTD) movement or a sketchnoter? Or do your pages resemble a jumble of thoughts, snippets of conversation and scribbled-out ideas? The Professional Notebook's simple layout is a flexible format that can be adjusted, hacked and personalized to help you be more proactive and productive.
It's where micro planning meets macro organization. With space for the date in the top right corner, the top six lines can be used for the meeting or project title, key info, agenda or attendees. You can go into detail below. Use the side column for action points, subheadings and keywords. An index, contents page, page numbers, detachable to-do lists and adhesive tabs all facilitate quick reference.
