Default Do you take notes?

How do you take them (note app on your phone/computer, in a journal, etc.)?

I've been using Evernote for a few years now and I think it's becoming more of a hassle than its helping. I spend way too much time organizing and writing stuff down that its kind of holding me back. Plus my OCD has me never satisfied with them. I really feel like by deleting them it'd change my life; kind of similar to traveling/going on a long vacation.

i dunno what kind of notes you are taking..

but it seems that the problem isn't note-taking, it's that after you take the note, you don't do anything with it. i have the same problem. i've got a fking shoebox just filled with scrap paper and pages torn from notebooks, mostly silly day dreaming, occasionally clever or insightful, some ideas i want to put into practise.

unfortunately i haven't been bothered to go through the shoebox in months. and i don't particularly want to... partly laziness, partly insecurity over whether these thoughts are any good. clearly i thought they were good when i wrote them down. but what if they aren't?

but i know one thing i wont' do : throw them all out




why would you throw out your evergreen notes? what purpose could it possibly serve? the only impact that deleting them could possibly have on your life is when you reach the point of regret and wish you hadn't.

if they aren't working for your life, use them differently. don't make a rash decision to scrap a bunch of work you've done the past few years. that could come back to haunt you.

I've always felt that I absorb the material better when I write by hand. Typing is so fast that the brain doesn't have time to really absorb the material.

But for note taking: One Note has always been pretty good.

EverNote.. eh.. Not a fan of the usage limit and I sure as hell am not paying for that shit.

I take notes in my copy and then revise them.

In class I never did, but I would hand write notes from chapters to study.

In every day life I just save memos or drafts of messages with ideas and things I come up with.

I have a separate notebook for each of the categories in Yahoo Answers. They're shockingly organized. I just spend way too much time messing with all of it. Some of the notes are better suited in excel or word files so I've spent like the past couple of weeks transferring some of them there (literally hours at a time). Problem with that is losing the benefit of having everything in one place

I'm thinking if I started from scratch it'll be better but when I look over them to see what I'd lose I just can't.

I don't like it when people throw around the term OCD. It spits in the face of people who really suffer from it; especially if you know someone with clinically diagnosed and treated OCD.

Your OCD doesn't act up like your knees when it's going to rain. It's a debilitating disease.
