How to take notes in print books, ebooks, AND audiobooks:

Here's a simple framework that will teach you how to take notes in any book medium. It's called HISA: -Highlight -Index -Summarize -Apply Here's how it works:

1) Highlight As you read the book, highlight any key insights, quotes, or advice you come across. Print book = Use a physical highlighter Ebook = Use the highlight tool Audiobook = Use the bookmark feature

2) Index Create an index of your highlights so you can easily find them in the future. Print = Write down the page # inside the front cover of the book Ebook = Import your highlights into a notes app Audiobook = Transcribe your bookmarks and import them into your notes app

3) Summarize Review your highlights and write a summary of the most important lessons. Print = Jot down the key lessons on the back cover of the book Ebook = Write the key lessons in your notes app Audiobook = Write the key lessons in your notes app

4) Apply The final step is to turn your key lessons into actionable advice and go apply it. Print = Write the actionable advice on the back right-side of the book Ebook = Write the actionable advice in your notes app Audiobook = Write the actionable advice in your notes app
