BOOST YOUR EFFICIENCY IN NOTE TAKING, MEETING PREPARATION AND HAVE FUN
During many seminars and meetings of all levels, I often noticed that I remembered much better the main ideas by illustrating them in the margin and by adding some basic colors, as I did in my student’s books. Drawing doodles for chapters, locations or action to take became eye catching tips to organize my note books and my agenda.
To analyze and to structure the daily stream of information is a challenge for every professional of today. In a full digital era, numerous studies showed that handwriting remains one of the best way to gather your ideas during the preparation of important presentations as well as during the synthesis and the conclusions of discussions and meetings.
This program aims at facilitating your concentration, focusing your attention on the priorities and boosting your motivation in situations of writings, note taking or information collection.
