I used to hate taking notes.
As more of an experiential learner sitting and taking notes did not come naturally to me. It was boring, tedious and seemed like a complete waste of time compared to other ways of studying – even in a traditional classroom / lecture environment where my other options were limited.
Other people in class could sit through one lecture, take fantastic notes and have everything learned inside and out. It was basically sorcery to me.
That is, until I learned a better way to take notes.
