My Fine Husband and I were having a family meeting last weekend. While we were talking, he was taking some notes.
G: “What are you writing?”
MFH: “Enhanced notes.”
G: “What are enhanced notes?”
MFH: “Notes I’ve already taken and am adding to.”
Next time you find yourself mindlessly adding notes or scribbles of any sort during a meeting, decide if they really do enhance your notations or if you could be paying more attention to other things in the moment.
FYI – we got a big laugh out of it, because we take the meetings seriously but nor ourselves too much…
