Ben Casnocha on note taking

27 Jul

A few weeks ago, I blogged about how note taking improves your memory.

Along a similar line, Ben Casnocha has an excellent post titled “Experts take notes.” It contains a number of interesting observations and useful links. He tells a story about a Silicon Valley meeting:

“According to my friend who relayed this story, there were two older folks in the front row who stood out: John Doerr and Ron Conway. They are both legendary investors in Silicon Valley.

They stood out not just because their gray hair shimmered in the sea of youth around them, but because they were the only people in the audience taking notes.”

Read the whole piece and pick up pen and notebook!
