Note taking has been a little, helpful hobby to me. I loved taking notes in class—lettering, organizing, doodling in margins (that counts too!) At work, I keep a notebook documenting my daily tasks and meetings. Though I am not as systematic as MIT professor, Ed Boyden, I enjoy his blog entry ‘How to Think’ that praises the note taker. [thanks for the link Carl!]
