Why you should take meeting notes
We spend a lot of our time dealing with each other. Most of this interaction is through meetings. Even so, people usually don’t take notes on meetings — they try to keep everything in their heads.

It allows you to dump everything into a system that can be processed at your leisure.
Even so, how can you keep up with the pace of the meeting and take notes at the same time? That’s why having a system to handle minutes is a must.
