The power of a pen and a notepad

During the last couple of weeks I have spent tuesday evenings drinkning coffee and discussing software development and change processes with a colleague. For our first meeting I brought a notepad and a pen for me to write down anything interesting that we would discuss. We sat down on opposite sides of the table and I subconsciously opened the notepad and placed it and the pen on the table between us. It didn't take long until my colleague started to draw images on the notepad explaining his thoughts and I did the same thing. Every week I bring my notepad and the same thing happens. Last week when we discussed learning we confirmed what we probably already knew, that we both have a strong visual learning preference.
