I believe that taking notes is a skill that can be acquired by doing it many times, so I think I will hit this wall at first.
I'm still a work in progress, so I sometimes find myself thinking, ``Oh, I haven't taken notes for some reason...''
I would like to introduce 5 points, including some that I regret not taking note of several times!
What I couldn't understand
It's no good if things you don't understand keep growing in your head and you can't concentrate on the story in front of you.
So, if there's something you don't understand or want to ask for more detail during a conversation, write it down quickly and concentrate on the topic at hand. I will look back on it later when I decide to ask a question or do research.
If you're wondering what you should ask for, we recommend using this to find out the information you're missing.
If you keep track of the ``when, where, who, what, why, and how,'' you can prevent information from being omitted.
I can't remember the 5W's, so I write "when, where, who, what, why" on the back of the cover of my memo pad.
my opinion and thoughts
Especially when I have a discussion, I don't have the confidence to remember my opinion until I have time to speak, so I just take quick notes.
If you write down your agreement, disagreement, reasons, alternatives, and other ideas, you can avoid missing out on things or missing your point when it's your turn to speak.
If you write down ideas that you would like to develop later, it may lead to opportunities and projects, and your future self will thank you.
What you asked someone else to do
I started taking notes after I entered my 8th year of work and started working in a managerial position.
By writing down what tasks you have asked to whom and by what deadline, you can avoid forgetting who you asked for the task, duplicate requests for similar tasks to other people, or forgetting the requested task. This will prevent you from not completing the task by the deadline, or from wasting your time worrying and worrying about how to do it.
It's safe to write down important tasks and remind yourself of them.
Although this is a secondary effect, it also accumulates necessary knowledge from a management perspective, such as what tasks were completed at what level.
It's difficult to understand everything when you take notes, and of course you can't write down everything, so it's recommended that you take notes and ask questions about where to look.
You can tell where to look, such as "You can see it here." "If you don't understand, ask me or Mr. ____." "If you search the folder with the keyword △ △, a simple manual will come up." If you write down the information, you will have peace of mind even if you don't remember it later.
If the reference source information does not come up in conversation or training, we recommend asking questions such as "Where can I look to find out?" or "What can I look for to find out more information?"
