What do take your notes with?
I used Franklin planners many years ago. I then migrated to Palm Pilots. Then it was my first smartphone ( Treo 600 ). Then I used OneNote, Bullet Journals, and general journals. I share all of this to let you know I've tried them all. I have most of these notes from long ago collected by using Dropbox as a repository for the last twenty years. Dropbox hasn't been around that long, but I have scanned many of the critical ones. These days I use an iPad with an Apple Pencil. I have used this for the past four years in combination with an app called Notability. It allows me connect my love of handwriting with being able to keep one universal record that is accessible via any device.
Notability costs like nine bucks ( I think ) but that is better than all the journals etc. The cool thing is that it is not just a note taking tool but a research tool for writing, papers, essays, brainstorming etc. Look for a video on this soon.
