Dan Pink, one of my favorite thinkers, posted a short video today about the benefits of taking notes by hand instead of the computer. He said that, since you use more parts of your brain when you write and doodle than when you transcribe word-for-word into a machine, you remember better.
Well, creatively taking notes is one of my favorite activities. I use the notes as the beginnings of more fully developed drawings. I share these images to fertilize your note-taking adventures.
I let the words, ideas and images flow through me and onto the page, delighting in what shows up. I am reminded that the word “Human” means “Divine Hand”. We can add humanity and divinity when we use our hands. I hope you have a blast taking notes.
