If you’ve been on back to back Zoom calls the past two years it’s likely you’ve needed to take notes to track various projects you are working on. It’s been proven that note-taking enhances focus and attention to detail and promotes active memory recall. In addition, note-taking helps you prioritize the most important points in any meeting or class, which is essential for following up with colleagues.
One of the best benefits of note-taking is that it can actually increase your creativity. Once your ideas are organized you can use your own initiative which expands creativity and innovation.
Now is the time to up your game note-taking wise. The art of effective note-taking is alive and well, and has gone digital. No more perusing through notebooks covered in coffee stains to try to recall tasks assigned to you (yikes!).
