5 Icons to Use When Taking Notes (WFMW)

. at . 4 comments

I take a lot of notes between seminary classes and church. I have developed a few shorthand icons that you might like to use.

I draw the following pictures in the margin of my notes. . . .

  1. Outline a book – I use this anytime a book is mentioned. I also write the name of the book and underline the name.
  2. Smiley face – I use this whenever a person’s name is mentioned.
  3. Lightbulb – I use this whenever I want to think more about a certain concept.
  4. Tear drop – I use this whenever I am emotionally moved and need to come back to think about why.
  5. Hand outline – I use this to denote a prayer item.

Do you have any shorthand icons that you use? Please share.

Edited to add: AI – This means Action Item. Whenever I think of something I need to do, I write the something on the top of the page with AI next to it. The AI might or might not relate to the class.
