I can"t be the only one
Every day at work when 9:30 a.m. rolls around, I find myself in a daily production meeting where we go over the same information, and are expected to act interested in what is being presented. In my attempt to play the part, I have my notebook, a set of eyes that shift from the speaker to my notepad intermittently, and my pen is moving after orchestrated pauses. However, the pad is filled with doodles instead of notes. I can't really help it. I find that I listen better when my hands are moving. But I can't believe I am the only one who does it.
I am accumulating, however, daily doodles, on lined paper that are reminders of the meetings, and I'm growing fond of the scraps and doodles.
I thought I would start a blog showing what is going through my mind, when something else probably ought to be.
If you are interested in sending me your doodles (they have to be done while in a buisiness meeting), please send them to me via email (preferably in jpeg format), with "MY DOODLE" in the subject header and the best ones will get posted. On each doodle sent, however, I need the following information: Time of day, type of meeting drawn in, the state, and name of company. I figure that such information would be interesting. (if you worry about naming the company...exclude that information).
