The headline itself is very self-explanatory.

Let’s do a quick exercise.

  1. Go back to all the notes that you have taken during the last event or conference or presentation that you attended.
  2. Of these notes, how many have you truly acted upon?
  3. Now go back to the previous event or presentation that you would have attended.
  4. How many of these notes have you acted on?

I bet not many. I am guilty of these too. 

There is a huge gap between note taking and taking action. It’s called the Action Gap.
