I have about five or six spiral-bound notebooks that I’ve held on to for a number of years now. Every once in a while I’ll find myself in need of a notebook, and one of these five or six is always within arms reach. They’re constant companions of mine when I go to meetings. I’m NEVER in a meeting without one!
And this is why… I’m usually BORED…TO…TEARS! And when I’m bored, I doodle. The longer the meeting, the more doodles there are, or the more complicated/intricate the doodle is.
Just the other day, I was in the car and in need of something to write on. I looked in the glove box and found a notebook from about three years ago. The first three pages had doodles on them. Here they are…
From a "Monday Morning Management Meeting" on Monday, December 8th, 2008. Obviously, nothing exciting happened in THAT meeting.
Also from the M.M.M.Meeting. Apparently this meeting lasted about the same time as the one the week before. 🙂
Same notebook, but I was waiting in the car for my wife while she had an appointment. After a while I got bored enough with the radio that I pulled out the notebook from the glove box and started sketching the building she was in. Not much later, out she came, so that was the end of the drawing session.
There ya go. A snapshot into 10-day period of my life. A lot’s changed since then… A LOT!, but isn’t it cool to look back every once in a while?
Here’s some other posts where I’ve been bored enough at work to doodle.
