Handling Meeting Notes

Handling Meeting Notes

Matthew Cornell has written an idea on how to deal with meeting notes. You may have loads of meeting and taken a lot of notes. If you are not dealing with them, you may end up with pile of useless papers. Matthew found out if you are using Getting Things Done method, you should deal with the notes just like any other actionable items. He made an example on actioning this:

  • What is it? Meeting notes.
  • Is it actionable? Yes.
  • What’s the next action?”Harvest” the notes for items needing my attention.
  • Two minutes or less to do? It depends on how extensive/complex the notes are. If it looks like there are only a few items, I’ll go ahead and process each one into the appropriate bucket (usually a Next Action or Calendar/Tickler). Otherwise I’ll add an @Anywhere Next Action that says “process xx meeting notes”, and I’ll stick the notes themselves in my Action Support folder (which I carry with me).

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
