Do you find you will never read your notes afterward? Or you don’t understand your notes after you wrote pages to pages where there is no gist. If so, you are not alone, I find I barely flip back to my old notes and have hard time to understand what did I write. Sketchnotes is the great way taking notes that it prevents you distracted from your mind wandering around, and the rich visual notes created from a mix of handwriting, drawing, hand-drawn typography, shapes, and visual elements like arrow, boxes, and lines.
As we know our right brain control verbal includes words, logic and language, and left brain control visual includes images, drawings and imagination. By doing Sketchnotes, it takes your WHOLE BRAIN working to create visual maps of what you hear, see, and think!
Sketchnotes can use for anything! Planing, documentation, journal, movie, TV, and Media. You can take it on your notebook or digital tablet. I have some examples that I took Sketchnotes for video, book and podcast.
