I am looking for a 2 column lined paper to utilize the business meeting note taking practices described below. That is either hole punched or has enough room to hole punch without compromising the columns I am looking for. It is similar to cornell note taking but with a narrow left hand column, a med size right hand column and a larger column in the center.
I was initially thinking of getting the levengers cornell note taking like paper but then I read some very old posts here and also ran into a mighty note link.
Below is the old conversation two posters were having , the levenger cornell like paper link and the mighty note link. Sorry for the excessive information but I thought if you understood how it would be used it would give you a better sense of why I am looking for this.
Oh I have considered that holding the paper landscape may allow for a larger note taking area. But I'm not sure if one of the people I am trying to get this for could adapt to taking notes in a landscape format.
One other concern is will there be enough space in the center column for notes
Thanks in advance for your help.
Hope this levenger link works. For some reason levenger links often don't work.
"Small margin over left hand side. Big margin over right hand side. Lots of space in the middle.
I make notes as I go from top to bottom in the middle. I annotate the notes with indicators for Actions/Decisions.
In the right hand margin I write questions as they occur to me. This is so that I can refer back to them during the meeting at appropriate times - without having to interrupt whoever might be speaking just so that I don't forget something."
"So far, the best approach I've found is dividing the page into a slim left colum, a wide center column, and a medium right column (similar to a web page layout). I take notes in the center with actions or key words in the left colum, and questions, follow-ups, or links in the right column. If the meeting or event requires a summary, I draw a fourth line from left to right across the bottom and write it there. Using different color pens also helps to visually orient me to these elements. Finally, I'm trying to discipline myself to review the notes immediately after the event and deciding on next actions, if I've inherited any. Everything else in the notes is either dump, delegate, defer, or file in reference."
