I was recently going through some of my “engineering notebooks” because I’m leaving my current job. I found some of the sketches I alluded to in an earlier post and decided to scan them.
I was a little disappointed going back through the notebook because, obviously, I was a lot less bored in my meetings this past year. Some of my drawings from the year before were pretty elaborate, but they were on sheets with the meeting agenda. Since the agenda was only barely relevant for one 2 hour meeting, I would toss them in the waste basket on my way out. Once I got my new sketchbook in place, I had changed teams and was being placed on some more interesting projects. As a result, I didn’t have to attend those long team meetings anymore. Most of my notebook is the kind of stuff you would expect to find in an engineering notebook.
