What are the best strategies for taking notes so that you can remember more?

Many of you have heard about the learning curve, but did you also know there’s a forgetting curve? Research shows that within 48 hours of encountering new information, most people forget up to 80% of what they read or heard. So, how can you change the way you learn to remember more in less time?

In today’s episode, I’m going to walk you through one of my favorite note-taking methods. This technique is not only easy to learn and simple to execute, it’s also a powerful tool to help you catch up, keep up, and get ahead in any area of your life.

We know that one of the most effective ways to learn something new is through active learning—not passive. And taking notes is one strategy to help you with that. But not all note-taking methods are designed to enhance your memory. Listen in as I go into detail on one of the best strategies for taking notes so you can recall and apply new information faster and more effectively.
