We can’t argue that laptops, iPads and smart phones are not brilliant devices to have in our world. They enable us to communicate instantly with people, keep records of all sorts of documents, and connect us with the world in an unprecedented way. But according to a study,

87% of business professionals are still using handwritten notes in addition to their digital communications.

Apparently by mixing digital media with our notes, productivity at work dramatically increases.

Researchers suggest that constructing letters and forming words on paper increases our ability to recall the information. There’s something about writing notes that you just don’t get by using an electronic device. It’s interactive, engaging, it takes time.

You can cross things out, re-read over them, circle and draw arrows to link information. We think it’s far more satisfying ticking jobs off a hand-written list, than it is deleting them from your screen!

Jotting down a shopping list, writing a birthday card, taking down a phone message, filing in a form at the bank ….handwriting will always remain a part of our daily lives.
