Using a digital notebook to do your remembering

Do you struggle with remembering everything?

If someone mentions a great business book, or you see a creative idea on the web for your business this might be what happens next. You think you’ll remember it, but as more information starts flooding your memory banks, those nuggets soon get buried … and forgotten.

You’re not alone.  I’ll be the first to raise my hand and stand beside you. There is simply too much to remember.

So you take notes.  And more notes. And more notes.  Maybe you have a stack of notebooks with lots of writing in them, but you never look at them because work gets busy.

Maybe you’ve mastered the art of note taking, but taking action on those notes remains elusive.

Taking notes just got easier.

There are plenty of ways to capture notes. The traditional paper and pen, the random scraps and sticky note scribbles; however, I believe the best way is with a digital notebook.

This doesn’t mean you have to lose the physical act of writing … I’m looking at you, the kinesthetic person clutching your beloved pen.  🙂 Digital notebooks can work really well with your handwritten notes. The fact is you can’t organize and search through handwritten notes the way you can in a digital notebook.

If it’s set up the right way, your digital notebook can quickly become your best friend.

In this video I’ll explain 3 things you must look for in a digital notebook that will transform it into your favourite business tool.

Keep Calm + Take Notes.

    So much great information! I have fallen out of the habit of really using my digital notebook, but now I have the exact problem you mentioned…paper notebooks everywhere with lost information and to-dos. I’m focusing in September on completing my digital organization project and getting my digital notebook cleaned up, too! Thanks so much for this!
