The Advantages of Handwritten Notes over Emails: Slow Down, Prioritize, and Personalize

In a fast-paced digital world, the ease of sending emails has become both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it provides a sense of relief that information is quickly transferred. On the other hand, the recipient is often overwhelmed with a never-ending stream of emails, making it difficult to keep up with the daily demands.  Is this the way we want to live our lives?

Writing a handwritten message forces, us to slow down, reflect on the significance of the recipient, and more carefully consider our communication. This increased mindfulness helps us avoid overwhelming others with excessive information and ensures that our messages are well-received and understood.  It also enhances our own memory recall on information being sent.  Furthermore, a handwritten note brings a personal touch that emails cannot match. It conveys the recipient’s importance in a way that cannot be conveyed through a text message. Imagine the positive impact it could have on your business relationships if those you communicated the recipient’s importance through handwritten notes. If you’re finding it hard to get your emails read, set yourself apart by sending a handwritten note instead.  If you’re working remotely, you can still send a non-urgent handwritten note through mail. The sight of your handwriting demonstrates that you took extra time and effort to communicate, making the message more likely to influence.

In conclusion, incorporating handwritten notes into our daily communication routines is a valuable strategy that shows respect for others’ time, helps us focus and prioritize, and adds a personal touch to our interactions.
