Robin Good's insight:
I recently stumbled onto this short video tutorial (1':57") which was created to explain to students how to take effective notes during a lesson or lecture.
Right upon my first play through it, I immediately felt that the steps suggested in it, could be also very useful for anyone just starting out with content curation and wanting to follow some kind of formal sequence to achieve good results.
The Cornell Notes video tutorial illustrates in fact in less than two minutes how to:
If you are just starting out with content curation, this can be quite useful.
Useful. Simple. 8/10

Robin Good's insight:
Bullet Journaling is a simplified manual method to organize, plan and archive all of your most important life activities, meetings and things you want to do with just pen and paper.
Forget Evernote or Asana, this is only for those who really crave for staying away from the digital tools - at least for this task - and who love to "curate" by hand their daily tasks and future activities, while maintaining a useful paper track of it all.
I am one of them.
As you can read on the Bullet Journal home page: "For the list-makers, the note-takers, the Post-It note pilots, the track-keepers, and the dabbling doodlers.
Bullet journal is for those who feel there are few platforms as powerful as the blank paper page.
It’s an analog system for the digital age that will help you organize the present, record the past, and plan for the future."
Bullet Journaling, invented by Ryder Carroll, is a way to organize on paper your personal (or professiomal) life, not a way to "curate" your life or experiences.
But it is from the keen ability to organize and put things in order that a curator can then extract and identify what has been of value and what not.
For this reason I am looking at Bullet Journaling not jut as a way of curating your life priorities but also as a good example of the curator's best spirit and attitude:
The reference web site is a destination worth checking out. Made just of one long page, organized into sections, it offers a complete how-to manual on getting started immediately with bullet-journaling.
Fascinating. Useful. Ingenious. 9/10
