This is where a recording device really helps, especially for those times when you can't write up the minutes until the next day, or when you have back-to-back meetings. As someone else said on this list, the recording is also good for archival purposes.

Things that help are: learning to write fast :) (and coming up with some of your own short hand), having a good memory, and the ability to separate the wheat from the chaff.

And I would add to this list, writing up the minutes as soon as possible after the meeting. The sooner you do, the better your memory will be at filling in any gaps in your notes.
