How do you take effective notes so that you can remember more?

As technology progresses, there are more notetaking options than ever before. Studies consistently show handwritten notes have better retention and comprehension than any other method. But we still get asked frequently what the best whole brain method for taking notes is.

Today, I’m going to take some of these questions from the Kwik Brain Universe on notetaking and do a modified Q&A to go into more specific detail on my favorite methods.

The more information you can remember, the more likely you can utilize those learnings in your daily life. Listen in, as I review several ways to level up your notetaking skills to help you learn faster and remember more.

***If you’re inspired, I want to invite you to join me in my brand NEW 10-day course, specifically designed to boost your productivity. I know it sounds too good to be true, but I give you step-by-step guides using the accelerated learning model to help you get more done and achieve your goals.

"Taking notes not only transforms the way you remember information, it improves your focus, attention, and concentration."
