You may have decided that messy handwriting doesn’t matter. Why should it? You use electronic devices to write most of the time — but what about those times when you need to complete a form?
How does your handwriting make you feel? Proud? Nervous? Ashamed? I’ve met countless people who always ask another to write for them — or make their name tags at gatherings... Sound familiar?
The fact is, messy handwriting can diminish your life in both small ways of which you are aware (at some level), and in other more impactful ways, of which you may not be aware.
Messy handwriting is caused by confusion about the letters of the alphabet. You do not have a clear and consistent standard image in your mind about how each of the letters should look, and are confused by all of the potential choices. The most common reasons for this confusion are that you are too smart and too creative to have only one image of each letter, and no one ever showed you how to select one that would best serve you for the rest of your life.
The effect of this confusion is a constant distraction: your brain wants to resolve the letter choice issue, but you don’t feel that you have the tools to choose the right one. This means that your brain is not functioning at its highest capacity to support all of the other amazing things you do. This also means that your productivity could skyrocket once you relieve the distracting chatter.
The distraction effect also occurs any time you are typing or reading, because your brain is scanning even more letters and trying to resolve the confusion all of the time. In other words, it’s a miracle that you accomplish anything. You must have superpowers.
You may believe that the only solution for messy handwriting is complicated, and requires tedious, repetitive writing exercises. The good news is that the confusion can be resolved through fun, interactive activities, and mastery of a consistent set of standard letters can be gained in a matter of hours. Also, it’s never too late to make a change!
