Supercharged Notes: the easy way to make your notes more useful

Pen and paper are still the fastest and easiest way to capture notes and ideas, especially when diagrams are involved. But digital tools are so much better for searching, editing and sharing information. Why choose one or the other? What if there was a way to get the benefits of both?

Supercharged Notes: Seamlessly integrate handwritten notes into your digital life

I’ve tweaked and refined an approach over the last 6 years that works well for me. Some of my colleagues have also found value in this approach, so I’ve finally written it up in an ebook. Supercharged Notes: Seamlessly integrate handwritten notes into your digital life explains how to:

  • stop dropping the ball on actions you’re responsible for
  • reduce the need to retype handwritten notes
  • easily spot action items among other notes
  • quickly find entries in paper and digital systems
  • painlessly move notes into digital tools so you can find and retrieve information of longer-term value

    Thank you for a very interesting book. Would you mind if I try to translate it into Russian?

    Thanks for the feedback Mike. The thought of translating it into other languages had never crossed my mind. I’ll send you an email and we can discuss it further.

    John, I’ve gone through the the book a few time and I think the method works well. Have you thought a way to do this with digital media (aka. iPad, tablet, phone

    • John Scullen says:

      Hi Manuel. I’m really glad to hear my approach is working well for you.

      One of my reasons for developing this method is that I like using a notebook and a pen to capture notes and ideas. It’s convenient and fast. I’ve tried to go digital a few times but keep going back to paper and pen, because I haven’t found a solution that works for me.

      Having said that, I had a play with an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil a few weeks back and there is some real potential here. This is the first stylus device I’ve tried that I could actually use. I’ll wait until the Pencil can work with the smaller form factor iPads before I dive in.

      App support is currently limited, but I expect this will also improve in time. Paired with an app like Notability, it could be very cool.
