Do you take part in meetings: meetings within a company, meetings with clients, meetings of a non-profit organization you are involved with, etc.?
For almost all meetings, I recommend that someone takes and shares meeting minutes - but very abbreviated meeting minutes. All you really need to know is:
1. Who was there (and who was invited but couldn't make it).
2. What decisions were made.
3. What to-do items were assigned - who is going to do what, by when.
Writing down these few things takes very little time - and saves time in the long run!
