Easily Level Up All Your Meetings By Taking Notes

Meetings are extremely expensive, because they take time. To make sure that you're not wasting time with your meetings, you should always be doing the simple yet effective task of taking notes.

Here are the core points from the video:

  • For recurring meetings, maintain a running doc - This applies especially to 1 on 1s and team meetings. If you're not talking during a meeting, you should be writing. These notes allow everyone in the meeting to quickly absorb prior context and hit the ground running in the current meeting.
  • Come into every meeting with a written agenda - >24 hours before the meeting, write down an agenda into the meeting notes doc and let the other other in the meeting know. This will anchor the discussion to minimize its chances of going off-track and shows great initiative on your end.
