Sketchnotes are amazing. Check out just a few of the many benefits.

  • Helps you stay more engaged.
  • Connects both sides of your brain for supercharged learning.
  • Helps you to communicate more clearly.

When you look at your notes weeks, months, or years later, you'll be shocked how much detail you can remember!

Want to learn to draw sketchnotes? You can! Using simple shapes such as lines, arrows, circles, triangles, and rectangles, you can doodle all sorts of things!

There are some great books out there

I posted a "sketch note challenge" on Twitter, and lots of folks followed along. You can follow along with these images I posted, and use them to practice. You'll be doodling all over your notes before you know it!
