Sketch Noting

I just finished a review meeting and I had to prepare an MoM(Minutes of Meeting) to circulate as a summary to the team .

We all have this conventional way of taking notes during meetings or lectures or may be even presentations. Moreover, we tend to forget things soon.

I do it in a different way. I just do not NOTE but I SKETCH NOTE them.

Does it Sound different? Well, it is a way of noting points in terms of Images and text.

Brain remembers things when you have a interconnection of things you want it to remember.

This sketch noting helps in making interconnection of things you see and you write.

In addition, we all know an image is worth 1000 words. Ok let me tell you that this is absolute fun way of taking notes too than those boring paragraph kinds of texts.

Many a times we get clear understanding of concepts when we draw block diagrams, draw icons, flowcharts along with the text. Isn’t it?

Ok here is the sketch note I did during 15 minutes meeting


you can Google it and check if it helps you in your work .

  1. That’s an interesting way of taking notes. On the other hand it is well known that when we need to learn something and we imagine a story (pictures) to it, we learn better or acually remember better.

  2. Indeed! I agree with you, Sup.. Taking notes with diagram is time consuming, understanding and quite a fun πŸ™‚
    Thank you for sharing πŸ™‚

    1. Yeah. Agree. So what I do is take a note of all important points. find keywords and then make sketch notes. Its called visual thinking .. Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

  3. very interesting you are. This is the reason why I created a guest book to keep me getting ur blog visited always.

  4. I must say that’s an innovative and a highly attractive way. I’m sure your team mates wouldn’t ignore the MoMs. πŸ™‚
    We also need to take down notes during our meetings and circulate. I guess I should try my hands on this:)
