My 3 year old daughter was in my office and was asking for a pen to add some contacts to her new phone book that she got in a birthday grab bag. (don't worry, I'm making sure any boy's names that make there way into that book will be swiftly crossed out!)
CRISIS! Daddy couldn't find a pen!
Then, I realized..."Sheesh, I actually don't even HAVE a pen!" :|
I got to thinking more about it. I use my iPhone and a task mgmt program for both personal and business to-do lists, etc., and I almost never "write something down" anymore. In fact, it actually feels strange when I have to write anything longer than my signature.
I'm in my 30s, so I went to school carrying a "loose leaf binder and a pencil case", not a macbook. It's strange to think about how I don't use pen and paper anymore.
How about you? Still use pen and paper regularly?
Why? Out of habit, or do you actually find there's a benefit of some sort?
Is pen and paper on the way to extinction? If yes, when do you think it'll happen? 5 years? 10? 20?
