The paper. 🙂 I am strongly convinced that the paper – as a medium – is several times more powerful in carrying your thoughts than a computer could ever wish to be. The problem with using computers is that you get distracted a lot, in fact, I am writing this post while watching a video at the same time (:oops:).
The ability to do several things begets procrastination which in turn makes you less productive. “How should I do it?”
The next time you have an assignment, do not start out by going to the computer but instead try to find a nice little room and spend some time there together with your simple notepad. You will be amazed at the results! (Even though you now do it in two steps – first the notes then the computer – it is still much more powerful than using a computer alone). Don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself!
