On one of my most recent meetings one of my clients turned to me and said “wow Paul, I didn’t realise that you knew short hand. When and where did you learn that”. Now, I have always wished I could write using shorthand but unfortunately this is not a skill I have ever learnt. In stead what my client perceived as shorthand was in fact my almost child like scribbling.
I thought of this comment when I saw a new product by the Pilot pen company called Pilothandwriting. In essence, you print out a template, write the corresponding letters in each box and then upload your filled out template back to the site. Once you have done this you can then create emails using your own handwriting as the font….not much use for me but still quite cool.
