Why Note-Taking Is Better Than Memorising
By Martin Verbic • Issue #13 • View online
Hi all!
Here’s your weekly dose of cues in medicine, thinking, learning and success. This week’s issue is all in the light of blog posts and articles as I’ve enjoyed them most (reading and writing them).
What you also may have noticed is that I’m back to the original name of my beloved newsletter - The Weekly Cue. The reason for this is that it got shared to a newsletter discovering site called Inbox Stash - view its profile here and upvote! Anyway, I like it and I especially like the logo. I hope you do too.

P.S. Do you know someone, who would enjoy this newsletter? Would you mind forwarding them this email? They can check my previous issues and consider subscribing. Thanks!

You know, that great idea for your next article, tweet or present for a friend you thought of the other day and then forgot about it? How many times has it happened to you? If you’re lucky, it comes back to you, but usually not in the right moment. This article is exactly about that and how to overcome it - by note-taking. Read it here (4 min read).
A short and simple blog post by Austin Kleon. He’s a writer who draws (as you can see from the photos) and he recently shared some pictures of his completed diary full of sketches and drawings. It’s kind of pleasing to look at. I hope I can look at my bullet journal the same way some day.
This is a TED article about writing emails. I like it because it’s concise, doesn’t “sell” nonsense and is actually useful. I didn’t know there was such a thing as manners to writing emails.
This is not a typical article about detailed steps to set you up for success. Instead, it offers an alternative perspective (or strategy), one that’s accessible to everyone. Instead of being the best in the world at something, be in the top 10% in the world at more things. Connected in one way or another, you become the best in the world at the collection of those things.
Another blog post: Dyslexia and imagination
As it might be evident from some of my latest tweets and newsletter issues, I’m so impressed by Richard Branson’s style of thinking and doing things. I’m especially fond of the the “screw it let’s do it” approach and the aim to be different even if you’re not always right. But he’s also dyslexic (surprisingly, maybe). He recently wrote a blog post about imagination and dyslexia and how it will have a valuable contribution in the future.
Did you enjoy this issue?
