LM Color Coding System

I am digital devices addicted. I like to use my iPad to draw and iPhone to record important notes. But this won’t hold my love back from the traditional way of writing and drawing. Digital devices are fast in many ways but they just can’t give me the fulfillment of writing with a pen. On the other hand, I have to admit that the traditional way of writing does fall short of something that digital has. One of the most important functions is the search engine. To locate an event in Google is just a click away but you may have to spend hours to find a special event in a notebook which may only have 100 pages.

To solve this problem, I designed the Life Mapping® Color Coding System that inspired by dictionary system ~


How to Use Life Mapping® Color Coding System?

  1. Create your own Color Codes and/or Color Symbols;
  2. Make an Index Page Marker. Alternatively, you can use any Life Mapping® page (except the foldout pages) , use it as the page marker and put it in the front or at the back of your planner.
  3. Fill your Color Codes in the grids
    Align the color codes vertically on the Page Marker. Leave some empty boxes in between different color codes. Once done, this position will be fixed throughout your binder.
  4. Always put the Index Page Marker behind the page that you are writing. This is my recommendation. Index Page Marker is your guide but not your Today Ruler. If you put it between your today pages, it will block your way.
  5. Use Life Mapping® inserts
    • leave the side index bars empty first;
    • Then, write wherever you like on the page;
      0020 03
      E.g “Call bank” is an important note.
    • Put your related color code beside the note;
      0 04 Important note “Call bank” belong to RED
    • If you want your note(s) to be searchable, you need to fill that color code in the side bar. The position of that color code must follow the “Index Page Marker” you made. 0 05
      For example,
      You can write short instruction under the color code too as a reminder and highlight. More examples
      mo2p_b2 mo2p_b
    • You can create symbols and use washi tapes too
  6. With this system, you can search and locate your important notes easily. Just bend your pages
  7. Get organized with Life-Mapping format Color Coding System
