→ Taking Notes After a Meeting

I have been thinking about doing this for a while. I currently take notes during meetings, sometimes putting a star next to important things, but only infrequently do I go back and review my notes when the meeting is over. Eddie Smith over at Practically Efficient sums it up pretty well:

I think it’s better to spend the ten minutes or so after a meeting pocketing a few flecks of gold than surrendering it all to the current of time.

From now on, I am going to take the first 12 minutes after every meeting reviewing my notes and making sure that I, at a minimum, extract the highly important items.
