Me too. It's weird, but I find the act of writing (not typing) helps me remember better. And I doodle to make sense of and plan things (like my terrible databases! LOL)

I have daily notebooks going back twenty years. It's a habit I picked up during my consulting days -- amazing how a scribbled word can serve as a reminder weeks later.
