Capture ideas

Whether you’re a student taking down notes during lectures or a creative professional trying to capture ideas in team meetings, learning proper note taking skills is a sure-fire way to boost your creativity and output.

Research has shown that taking notes by hand on paper aids memory, with your brain given the space to think and summarize far better than if you’re tapping information straight onto a computer. Notepads allow you to make eye contact with colleagues and teachers and don’t erect barriers in the same way that laptops do.

Try out different note taking styles, such as mind maps, categorizing information and developing your own shorthand. Keep a journal to help remember ideas, develop strategies to achieve your goals and boost your mental well-being. Invest in a Bamboo Ink stylus, which works with Windows Ink allows you to save your handwriting digitally, making it easier to share whatever you scribble down.
