Note-taking is important for every growth. So why formalities are needed?

No more formalities. Notes are thoughts. Notes make thoughts clearer. What are impedances of note-taking?

Some notes need to be private if the content is sensitive. Private is a default state of note.

Some notes are hard to write. The need to get the proper words steal the speed. Stop hesitation in using personal words or even temporary words helps maintain the speed and ease. Adding images or sketches help to minimize the energy to pick up matching words.

Some notes need to be imperfect to be done. Hoping for perfection in note-taking is counterproductive. Let all imperfections flow into the notes. Notes exist to manage imperfections, not to show perfection.
