In the podcast "How to Take Notes" one of the recommendations is to use symbols for shorthand. What notetaking symbols do you use?
For action items I circle the initial of the person who is supposed to compete the action item (which is a little different than the MT example). I also use a double lined arrow for "which resulted in." The podcast lists a checkbox to mark to-do's, a cloud for deliverables, and a box for a delegation. I use a carriage return symbol (pointing right) to demarcate a sub-point.
I usualy list meeting attendees in the top right corner (right below the date) in order so I can see who was sitting next to whom. I was recenly encouraged to do it around a box representing the table which adds the domension on who sits at the end of a table.
To help wth shorthand I am looking for some more symbols. If you have any good ones, please list them in the comments.
