I’m a process person. When things are E&E (effective and efficient), I’m a happy camper. I’m also an active networker, with over 20 meetings with new people each week. Note taking is a vital component of my productivity. As I build my network of top-tier resources to refer others to when needs arise, I’ve got to have an easy way to record my thoughts without missing what the other person is saying. After lots of research, I went the iPad route and also invested in the paid version of Notability. It turns out to be the ideal way for me to capture my thoughts digitally (with a pen, which aids with remembering) and transfer them to my company’s CRM (we use Pipedrive).
To kick it up a notch, I invested in Paperlike, a film you put over the screen to make it feel more like paper: less clicky, more sticky. Happy to talk more about why this is working so well for me, but if you like demos well done with a little humor, check out the how-to for applying Paperlike to your device’s screen. Made me smile.
