Post-Meeting Drawing

November 12, 2018 – December 7, 2018

How might we...

  • How might we counter the Forgetting Curve?

Hypothesis

Drawing a picture after a meeting will help me remember what happened at the meeting

Design

Refrain from taking notes during meetings beyond Next Steps / Decisions Made. Draw a picture within 24-hours of the meeting.

Metrics

At the end of the experiment, look through list of meetings and name what I remember.

Learnings

I did seven drawings after meetings during this time-period. I wasn’t disciplined about testing the Forgetting Curve afterward, as I had originally planned. But I do have some takeaways:

  • There is definitely something powerful about taking notes after the conversation rather than during. It requires time and discipline, but I think it works better in a lot of ways.
  • I love having these meeting artifacts. Much more pleasant to browse through than written notes.

Decisions

I want to try a work project with a team where we do after-the-fact notes rather than real-time.

I want to keep up this practice for myself personally.
