Daily Productive Sharing 118 - Why Shall We Create Notes?

One helpful tip per day:)

(The English version follows)

#note_taking

为什么记了读书笔记也还是想不起来书里讲了啥?为什么课堂笔记抄了幻灯片上的内容一点内容都没用?关键在于我们并没有把这些笔记内化成自己的认知。今天的分享中,作者建议把记笔记改为创建笔记,其中最根本的就是,使用自己的语言来记录:

  1. Rephrase the original idea.
  2. Connect ideas together. Daily Productive Sharing 089 - 20201217
  3. Build upon the ideas.

比如我们每天的分享都会加上导语,主要是为了帮助我自己记录该分享中最重要的点,而且也可以快速帮助大家了解分享内容。

对了,分享也是很好的知识消化方式,可以听之前推荐的闭门造车 podcast 中的介绍。Daily Productive Sharing 113 - 20210120

Why can't we remember what was said in the book even after taking notes? Why are classroom notes copied from the slides not useful at all? The key is that we don't internalize these notes into our own knowledge. In today's sharing, the author suggests changing from note-taking to note creation, the most fundamental of which is to use your own language to record.

  1. Rephrase the original idea.
  2. Connect ideas together. Daily Productive Sharing 089 - 20201217
  3. Build upon the ideas.

For example, we add an introduction to each day's sharing, mainly to help me keep track of the most important points in that sharing, and also to quickly help you understand what is being shared.

Excerpt

Note-taking often happens while listening; the goal is to quickly capture content so we can refer back to it later.

Note-making is more common while reading; it consists in deliberately crafting our own version so we can learn and create better.

In contrast, note-making is slower, more involved, and uses our own language. As a result, the content is easier to understand and remember.

By taking the time and making the effort to rephrase the content you are consuming, you are more likely to commit the information to your long-term memory.

At its core, note-making is about shifting one’s mindset from passive collection to active creation.
