Taking notes is a good way to capture and digest the content of a meeting. It also increases focus on the subject matter at hand, as the notes preserve the salient points.
Here is a list of abbreviations for use when taking notes to make them even more productive:
- A is an Action item.
- C is a Call that needs to be made.
- R is a Reference item for further use.
- F is a Follow-up that needs to occur.
- S is something that needs to be Scheduled.
After the meeting, work through the notes to prioritize or delegate the associated action items.
