Now I can doodle and not feel guilty about it

Do you doodle? Well I do and I know lots of others who do. 

I feel slightly vindicated this morning having watched the below fab segment from by Sunni Brown that studies show that sketching and doodling improve our comprehension and our creative thinking. I was a doodler at school and had to curb my enthusiasm, as I was often reprimanded for not paying attention. Now I tend to only doodle when I’m on the phone and maybe there is legitimate reason to do so – to retain information.

Anyway this 5 minute segment from is great and below is my doodle from a call this morning (I wonder what Freud would say – flowers, bunnies, houses? Seems I still doddle like a 12 year old)

    I love that! I love that they confused Bill Gates' doodle with Tony Blair's!
    I always doodle and I always draw either a house with a big tree and a fence or I draw bottles and glasses of wine. Quite desperation at work perhaps…..

    Welcome fellow doodlee. Nearly always a house or a chair in mine….. Glasses of wine oh yes I can see how that works!

    Can you imagine what Bill Gates thought of that list of what his doodles meant?
