    • How to Make Your Own KnowItBook © Flight of Mind, LLC 2009
    • KnowItBook is a journaling / organization tool to help you keep track of projects, ideas, thoughts, and notes. You’ll be able to see immediately what their status is and which items need your attention.
    • Start with a spiral-bound notebook with 100 pages. A divider in the center helps.
    • In the upper right corner of each page number the fronts only, 1 – 100
    • The backs of the pages are numbered with a “B” for “Back.” 1B, 2B, etc.
    • Page one and two are the Table of Contents
    • Page 3 begins the Miscellaneous Section Draw a vertical line ¼ inch in from the left edge of the page.
    • Draw another line ¼ from the first.
    • This gives you two squares to the left of the lines to track items.
    • When someone gives you a bit of data or you have an idea, this is the place to record it. --- Call about refinancing X + Renew Fitness Membership
    • The boxes at the left of each line will help you track each bit of information. As you jot down this information, make a mark in the box immediately to the left of the line. A dot means it is not more than a bit of information.
    • If something is most definitely an actionable item but is a low priority it gets a dash. Dots can be turned into dashes just by drawing a line through the dot.
    • If it becomes a high priority item, then it can be escalated to a plus simply by drawing a vertical line through the dash if it had previously been a dash. And if it is a critical item, express that as a plus with a circle around it.
    • When an item is completed put an “X” in the box to the left of these symbols. By scanning down the first column you can immediately see items not completed.
    • Page 51 is the beginning of the Topics Section.
    • Topics are items from the Miscellaneous Section that you want to develop into projects.
    • Turn the book over….now beginning at the back: Page 100B begins the Think Section.
    • Yes, you’re writing from the back of the book, and upside down.
    • The Think Section is for diagrams, doodling, figuring, and a quick game of tic-tack-toe.

    • Still with the Knowitbook upside-down, turn to page 50B. This is the beginning of the Notes Section.
    • You will use this section to take notes in a meeting. When you are finished, date the note and draw a line under it.
    • This is also a good place to take notes during a phone conversation. Date it and draw a line.
    • When page 50 B is full turn the page and start writing on page 50 but still with the book in this upside down position.
    • At some point your writing will meet writing coming from the other direction. That is when you make a new KnowItBook.
