A tool is what you make of it

  • People use note-taking tools for the reason that best suits them and not every tool will work with the same utility across the board
  • When it comes to taking notes, simpler is often better
  • Do not fall victim to switching note-taking apps all the time
    • The more you use one app, the more you will be able to see the benefit that can be drawn from it

There are three main note-taking styles

  • Architect - they enjoy structure in their ideas and note-taking
    • Notion
    • Coda
    • Tettra
  • Gardener - they enjoy exploring and getting taken away by their note-taking
    • Roam Research
    • Obsidian
    • TiddlyWiki
    • RemNote
    • Milanote
  • Librarian - they enjoy collecting various notes and need something to locate their notes easily
    • Evernote
    • Bear
    • One Note
  • The best way to decide which app you choose should depend on a couple of things:
    • Your personal note-taking style
    • The specific use case of the note app
