Taking notes has become one of my favourite pastimes.
Whenever you chat with a member of the management team at MLC, you’ll notice that all of them take notes. When asked about it, our CEO Paul Hose said;
I am gifted a notebook every Christmas by my wife. They now contains ideas about courses, lessons; an entire raft of scribbles relating to my personal and professional development. I have also found it a great way to take down people’s ideas and concerns as they share them with me and at the end of my day or working week, I can recall ideas and comments and reflect upon them.
Some of my best and silliest ideas live in notebooks. We strongly recommend to our diploma students and trainee teachers that they make notes using a pen and paper. It helps us process problems and it can relax us which in turn can result in a better night’s sleep.
