The Ultimate Guide To Note-Taking [Infographic]

Do you find it difficult to recall what you have learned in lectures or meetings? Why not develop the habit of note-taking?

According to the infographic produced by Westminster Bridge Student Accommodation (WBSA), if you don’t organize and review your notes within the first 9 hours, 60% of what you have learned will be forgotten. Writing down and reviewing your notes is important because you may not have any ideas how to apply what you have learned at the point when you receive the information. Reflecting on them later may be more effective.

Although there isn’t a correct way of taking notes, this useful infographic below shares three popular methods of note-taking that you can try. For each method, it also highlights what it is ideal for and things to consider when using the method.

Some people think that carrying a notebook and taking notes are geeky. But note-taking shouldn’t be limited to students only. It’s equally essential for working adults, leaders and entrepreneurs to take notes too. In his recent blog post, the founder of Virgin Group, Richard Branson, says that note-taking is one of his favorite pastime. Legendary investors in Silicon Valley, John Doerr and Ron Conway, were also spotted to be taking notes in one of Mark Zuckerberg’s talks.

If you want to be successful, perhaps it’s time to start taking notes. Check out the infographic below for more note-taking tips and information.
