The Miseducation of the Doodle

The teacher who chastised you for “mindless doodling” was wrong on both counts. Far from shutting down the mind, the act of doodling engages the brain in the kind of visual sense-making people have practiced for over 30,000 years. Doodling sharpens concentration, increases retention, and enhances access to the problem solving unconscious. It activates the portions of the visual cortex that allow us to see mental imagery and manipulate concepts, and unifies three major learning modalities—visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Doodle Revolution leader Sunni Brown introduces strategic doodling and presents the ABCs of our shared visual alphabet.

The Starfish story

No matter how big or small our actions are, they will always make a difference for someone and add to the global efforts to solve the world’s challenges.

There was once a man who used to go to the ocean to get inspiration.

One day as he walked along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a person throwing something into the ocean.
As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man, and the young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up starfish, and very gently throwing them into the ocean.

– “Good morning young man! What are you doing?”, Asked the wise man.

The young man paused, looked up, and replied:
– “Don’t you see? I am throwing starfish into the ocean. The sun is rising, and the tide is out. And if I don’t throw them back into the ocean, they’ll die out here.”
– “But, young man, don’t you realize that there are miles of beach and thousands of starfish all along it? You can’t possibly make a difference or save them all!”
The man told the young boy.

The young man, listening politely, bent down and picked up another starfish, throwing it into the sea past the breaking waves.
Turning to the old man, he modestly replied,

“It made a difference for that one.”

The writer silently walked to a nearby starfish and threw it in the ocean… and another… and more people passing by joined. Before dusk, the beach was bare.

No matter how big or small our actions are, they will always make a difference for someone and add to the global efforts to solve the world’s challenges.
