Notetaking goes beyond capturing information. It helps you organize, process, and engage with the information. This week, episode 198 of the Positively Living Podcast is about notetaking inspiration to easily organize your life!

Emily Aborn is a Content Copywriter, Speaker, and Host of the Content with Character and She Built This podcasts. She lives in Temple, NH with her husband, Jason, and their snuggle-loving dog, Clyde. She enjoys hiking, reading, being a Jeopardy contestant from her couch, and writing.

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, Emily Aborn and I share each of our notetaking techniques and explain why they work for each of us individually. We also share what we use to take notes and offer actionable steps you can take right now to try notetaking in a way that works for YOU. 

Emily and I cover the following topics:

  • How taking notes helps to remember important details, act on ideas, brainstorm, and stay present during conversations. 
  • Our favorite methods and tools for note taking and different use cases for each. 
  • A good first step to get yourself into the habit of notetaking. 

Notetaking is a technique with endless methods. To uncover what works best for you, start by understanding why you’re notetaking, then choose and try some options to see what works best.
