I have been aiming to take better notes for clearer follow through and action after meetings at work. For the past few weeks I have been trying many different techniques and finally found one that works for me. First, it starts with using a notebook: moleskin then finding the right method for you.

- Cornell Notes – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornell_Notes

PS – here are the other articles I read while defining the process that I aim to use:
