When is the last time you wrote a letter? The average person hasn’t written by hand for 41 days, and one in three hasn’t had reason to hand-write anything for six months. Shopping lists, taking notes in a meeting or even wishing someone a happy birthday are more often done electronically as an e-mail or text message these days.
Two thirds of the 2,000 people surveyed said if they do still hand-write something, it’s usually for their eyes only as a scribbled reminder or a quick note.
I still hand write all my daily ‘to-do lists’ and if I have to write something for work, I still usually hand-write a rough draft and then type up a final copy. But I think I am in the minority of folks who write much at all these days.
How often do you hand-write anything these days?
