    I totally agree that writing notes by palm is undoubtedly better for mij. Spil you said, you have a higher tendency to attempt and summarise, synthesise and interpret what you hear or read te your own words. This represented the very first level of understanding of what I’ve just heard or read.

    I then go back and re-read my handwritten notes, this time highlighting the words I want to emphasise and repairing some of the horrible handwriting spil I scribbled away earlier on. This helps mij to further comprehend my understanding.

    Ultimately, I also transfer thesis set of notes to either Evernote, or if thesis are reflections, to DayOne Two.0. So I ultimately typed thesis out, but only at the last stage and to keep them ter digital format spil a future resource or reference. Keeping them te digital format like thesis permits mij to tag thesis notes, thus making them useful for future use.

    I have bot taking notes by palm for many years. I sometimes get quizzical looks which said….what IS she writing and WHY is she doing that. When I wasgoed periodically asked, I’d explain that writing wasgoed the way I ‘imprinted’ the information on my brain. Maybe not the best explanation, but they got the point. Thank you for validating my ‘idiosyncrasy’, which isn’t !

    Thanks for the reminder, Dan, that transcription captures Skill, while writing captures Learning. Years ago I learned the skill of MindMapping, which indeed connects to my visual learner. So ter addition to hand-writing my notes, I capture ideas with a combination of words, pics and colors, which does even more to reinforce the learning te my brain!

    This is a superb reminder. An reserve tasty peak is to use an iPhone app called CamScanner to digitally digest and digitally store the notes for use ter setting of future projects. Thanks, Dan Pink.

    Dan and now Kok Hwa Lim, you have lodged an argument that has bot furious ter my head for many years, so thank you for that. Especially, digitising the notes so that they can be stored and searched is sensible.

    The question that remains, however, is how extensive should the notes be. Attempting to take down everything obviously doesn’t work. I attempted being selective, but this introduced the extra obstacle of having to determine for each utterance whether it warrants being noted down, and this decision process detracted from the listening. I stopped noting what seemed evident, but then found I frequently did not have much of a record of what wasgoed said if a meeting or a lecture did not produce any superb surprises. Generally I’ve found that attempting to note what the other person is telling makes it hard to concentrate.I use notes to highlight a point that I want to raise spil a result of what the speaker has said.

    Perhaps you’ll voorkant note-taking ter one of your next talks.

    I can help you with this dilemma.

    When I went back to collegium te my 30s (my post-secondary education wasgoed anything but a sleek path), I discovered that my best learning modality wasgoed listening. Te the process of re-listening to lectures on British history A and B!, I fine tuned my capability to discriminate inbetween the substantive facts and narrative from the tangential information.

    From that experience– I wasgoed able distinguish threads of ambiguity, questions, stream of consciousness processes from the formal structured outline of the lecture and or class. A regular party up te my head. How to overeenkomst with that. . .

    1. for the very first two or so lectures, I would transcribe (by palm) the notes I had taken te class. That talent mij sense of pacing, language, movement, use of the white/blackboard, . . and somehow, I would get a sense of what wasgoed significant.

    Two. top right margin: date | week-# | lecture-#, p.-#

    Trio. Left katern: written te black ink– non-linear thinking, tangents, questions, key words, phrases that would trigger the pertinent thread/thought.

    Four. Right katern: written ter blue– formal structure of lecture– key words, phrases– just enough to capture the “idea” or concept– or pattern, or relationship.

    Five. I never use a numbering system, ie 1., 1.1, 1.Two etc. too hard to recall. Instead I use this heirarching:

    1) numbering if it go that detailed.

    Te that way– I never had to expend energy thinking what number I wasgoed on when I’m on my third pagina of notes.

    6. Anything truly significant gets a big asterisk * / . / a check mark with a arabic number ter the cradle. often cross-referenced to the same tick mark ter the text. Letterteken “a” ter the margin simply meant there wasgoed a word that I need to look up and the letterteken “b” means there is reference to a pertinent text or book. The letterteken “Q:” precedes any query from your head– from wherever it emerges.

    Back to your point however about what the other person is telling.

    1. If the person has ready for the meeting– then there will be at least 1/Two/Three or key ideas– they should articulate those up vuurlijn. That is worth jotting down.

    Two. They may or may not pack ter idea 1, Two, Trio. That is how you can tell whether or not they are focused on the information they are providing and whether it is significant to them to convey that.

    Trio. 9/10ths of waht you are doing is listening. the 1/Ten is writing. If you have a system and landscape ter place upon which to posit the threads of non-linear thinking and formal structure– along with questions that speelpop up

    Four. Being able to write cursive is critical– printing is like writing te heiroglics– strain free. Some days I write like a schizophrenic– because there is too much stress. I seem to write best – ter the very early morning. It’s a remarkable phenomenon. I practiced cursive writing– and for the most part my writing is legible to mij. But it is significant to have a style that flows lightly.

    One of the books I would like to read is Eric Fromm’s the kunst of listening: here is a verbinding a summary of same at brain pickings https://www.brainpickings.org/2018/04/05/erich-fromm-the-art-of-listening/

    . . .If you master this basic technique– it will become very clear very quickly whether or not the person speaking or providing a presentation has thought through the material.

    going off on a tangent isn’t a bad thing– it coerces the listener to think spacially and globally– spil long, the presenter comes back to the main topic.

    . . .if you are just focusing on what they are “saying” its the omschrijving of attempting to read with a magnifying glass, you miss a loterijlot. If you can concentrate on the “message”, the “purpose” – and simply absorb the character, manner delivery– of the presentation– you are more likely to capture the essence of what their purpose is.

    .. .if there is written material that comes before– use that spil a guide-post.

    This is a “stereophonic” treatment. It validated the dialogue ter my head– creating a setting for understanding whatever it might have been– with the whatever the rational and process/sequencing being suggested externally.

    . . Several times, I wasgoed able to go to office hours and trace a particular idea or point with the instructor– and they would realize that they either left behind that point– or more interestingly brought a entire fresh way of thinking based on the contextualization I created for myself te order to understand the original point.

    Be glad to share this process te a visual format anytime. You can reach mij at [email protected]

    Kleuter regards– Elaine.

    I’m just eyeing the note below mine– by Lisa Sansom– which brings up another solution entirely.

    There is Livescribe: https://store.livescribe.com/ a friend of mine who is a management type– vows by it because it captures the entire meeting– and no one can accuse hier of telling that this or that wasgoed not disucssed. it’s right there …. ter the schrijfstift. This sure isn’t Kansas anymore, is it!

    Ditto what has also bot my processing frustration. Please Do educated us on meaningful note taking abilities.
