Do you get flack for scribbling away absent-mindedly during meetings, classes or while talking on the phone? While many people dismiss doodling as a mindless pastime, research suggests doodling seriously heightens our ability to learn and remember important information.

By taking doodling to the next level, individuals expand their ability to visually communicate their ideas. Virtually every scientific and market innovation began with an individual making doodle marks on paper. Where would we be today without the telephone or internet? Alexander Graham Bell and Tim Berners-Lee made their inventions possible because they were good doodlers. Seriously.
