Once you read personal development books, it is also important to apply what you have learned in your daily life. But how can you apply those lessons in your life without remembering them? The first step is often the most important. That is remembering the content.
Take Notes of everything you learn through these books
One of the most effective ways of remembering what you have learned is to take notes. Taking notes is fairly simple yet so effective when it comes to applying lessons in everyday life. It does not require much time and saves a lot of effort in the future.
You can take notes online through notepad apps for the sake of convenience and easy accessibility. However, if you like the tactile feel of the process, you can opt for writing the notes by hand. This may require you to keep a notebook. The good part about having these notes written down is that written content is better remembered than what you have just read or typed. As writing is a slow process and also involves a lot of senses, the content becomes strongly fits into the memory.
Another advantage of the written content is accessibility and future reference. We can not always expect ourselves to remember all the lessons at the same time. We often lose important points after a certain period. The best way to prevent this from happening is to have everything written down somewhere so you can easily access it whenever required. All you have to do is open a notebook and you have all the information in one place.
You can also make an index to keep track of what is written and mention the page numbers to further increase the ease of access.
