Taking Notes and Creativity
Writing is not the outcome of thinking; it is the medium in which thought occurs
If you want to learn and remember something long-term, write it down. If you’re going to understand an idea, you must translate it into your own words.
If writing is needed for thinking, why not use it to build up resources for future publications? That’s where taking notes comes into the picture.
Taking notes is one principle that stands the test of time despite considerable changes in the underlying technology.
The action of writing things down opens the door to understanding the essential nature of the creative process.
