How color-coded notes make you a more efficient thinker:
Separating “branches” of your map by color stimulates the creative side of your brain, helps you visually separate and recall distinct themes of the stuff you’re working through, and encourages you to map through even boring topics that seem cut-and-dry.
“Add a dash of color … and all of a sudden the notes come alive. They are unique, they are unusual, they are memorable and they are more interesting.”
Fuck Yes! ya’ll don’t know about my stationery / note taking habits but I’m a HUGE nerd for color coding systems. I always must have 3 colored pens on me (blue & black to write out listicles and to do’s; red for updates and action items) plus multiple colored highlighters (green and yellow for immediate attention; blue and pink for fun). I cannot stand when someone interrupts my system!
