Thinking on Paper: Analog Strategies to Stay Sane in a Zoom World

October 8, 2020 | 11:00am - 12:00pm

Would you be surprised to learn that neuroscience shows that taking notes by hand improves your cognition? Or that doodling can fire up your prefrontal cortex? In a world where digital tools are making everything faster and easier, processing on paper has some surprising advantages—especially when it comes to organizing your task list, solving problems, and getting things done. 

If you’ve ever spent a whole day being busy, but missed the most important thing you were supposed to finish—this session is for you. Join Cathy Hutchison for a look at analog organization tools for a digital world, and why you may want to test drive them. We’ll dive into Bullet Journaling, the power of sketchnotes, and the art of the brain dump in solving overwhelm. Best of all, we’ll do it with simple techniques that will help your brain work for you rather than stressing it out.
