I’m addicted to MUJI notebooks. They’re cheap, lightweight, and I don’t feel bad about scribbling all over them.

I doodle constantly. It’s how I think. It’s how I conceptualize ideas. It’s how I share those ideas with others. Turns out, research shows that doodling can improve creative thinking and comprehension.

People who doodle when exposed to information retain 29% more of that information than their non-doodling counter-parts.

In this short, engaging TED Talk, Sunni Brown, the author of Gamestorming, talks about the importance of doodling in the workplace.
