listen < take notes < sketchnote

I believe in the power of sketchnotes. Taking notes in this style has taught me how to take in information and reformat it in my own words in a visually compelling way, and helped me retain knowledge much more readily whether I'm going through a book or attending a lecture/talk. I began my sketchnoting journey as a first semester sophomore and have been running with it ever since. I still have far to go, especially in sense of hierarchy and flow, but I'm sure a sketchnote-a-day will get me there. Follow me on Twitter to see what I'm sketchnoting next!
