…because some thoughts are worth remembering
Even if I were ok marking books, I realized it was harder to find passages I wanted to recall, or what lessons I learned from them. So, when I stopped buying books, I started to use sticky notes to jot down things I wanted to remember from the books I was reading, and placed them with my other piles of sticky notes of observations and reflections. So far, it’s working out better than marking books or taking notes in notebooks.
Here’s a sample of the kind of notes I take to fit on sticky notes. This note is from reading The Lean Startup by Eric Ries.
