Always be note-taking
Whether you’re on a sales call with your prospect
Or you’re the prospect
Keep an open google doc out
Off-screen if need be
And keep 1 ear out for the value that the person on the other end of the conversation
Might be giving you.
And here’s why:
You think you’ll remember it
And you just plain won’t
And here’s another reason why:
Those notes are allowing you to pull double duty as both a giver and receiver
You will listen better and take more from the session
One more reason:
It looks appreciative of the other person’s time that you value it enough to take notes
They’re your notes
Chances are the other person is taking notes too
And if you’re not
You’ve now put yourself in the unenviable position
Of having to ask them:
Say, you mind sending over your notes?
P.S. If you use google calendar, scroll down into any google invite and you’ll find ready-made notes for the meeting
