The Lost Art of Note Taking
Just the link I need in my quest to become super exec and desirably hireable by the gentry.
In fact, just the blog to keep me on track.
Clever Michael Hyatt. (Publishing chappie, wouldn't you know).
Luckily - or not - I have always been landed with the job of note taker: when I was a junior publisher, it went with the lowly status; when I got a bit more senior, I didn't trust the offical amanuenses; and when I came over to the US and started work for Cajola Inc., we took it in turns until muggins here made the mistake of delivering a pithy and almost witty report over which everyone gushed and prompted my manager to puff her chest and flutter her lashes and beseech me to do it full time. It was a right pain because I hand wrote and then had to hammer them out double-quick as email to be distributed before EOB. But I ended up the only one who remembered actual details so it was usually up to me to settle disputes, which is power.
Sounds frighteningly wired and efficient. Mr Hyatt would be proud of you.
Inspired by yr comment, I expanded the post a bit.
Also, I am told that one gets round responding to helpful anon comments by using the comment box for a *reply*. So obvious.
