Put The Shiny App Down and Read This Instead

You don't actually need a fancy note-taking system to get your notes and ideas organised.

Stop before you download that shiny new app and & take 5 minutes to think about how YOU work.

I'm not talking about some complicated Venn diagram. This simple Workflow Taxonomy from Maggie Appleton is a beautiful example of how ideas move through her Digital Garden and it got me inspired to write out my process.
