I want to overcome my bad notes
Today, I'd like to introduce some questions you can ask when taking notes.
Ever since I entered the workforce, I have never been good at taking notes. Sometimes I miss something and have to check it again later, or sometimes I'm too busy writing and can't understand the content...
From the time I was a new graduate to my seventh year in the workforce, I took notes even though I thought I was bad at it, and I thought, ``I'm glad I listened to this!'' and it was amazing when my juniors asked me questions while I was taking notes. I will introduce what I thought.
What should I prepare in advance?
It's best to listen before you start taking notes, as it can be confusing if the list of things you need and need to prepare pops up in the middle of the explanation.
If you miss something or are not in a position to listen to it, set aside an area in a corner of your memo pad for a list of things to prepare in advance.If something comes up while you are taking notes, write it down in that area. To do. Once you've finished taking notes, just ask yourself, "Are you prepared in advance?" and you're good to go!
Who should I ask if I fail or don't understand?
After being taught something once, it can be intimidating to ask it again. It is recommended that you ask this question when you make your first memo, as this will make it easier to ask the person who gave you the information again, and you will not have to worry about who to ask if the person is busy or absent.
Can I record it?
If you are worried about missing something, we recommend that you record it. Personally, I use it a lot because it gives me a sense of security that I'm recording, and I feel like I can use my brain to understand things.
However, if it's a long explanation, it can take a while to find the information you need, and if it's about how to operate something, there's a lot of ``this, that, that'' and it can be difficult to understand from the recording. You may also want to consider videos.
Are there any common mistakes?
Listening to the failure points will make it clear what you should be careful about. If you write down a lot of things, you may lose track of the important parts, but if you listen to stories of failures, you can quickly grasp them.
I think there are many people who like to talk about their past failures (based on my experience as a store manager), so I think hearing about them can help bring you closer together...
