We live in a world of problems. Be it in office, your own business or home, we are expected to solve them all the time.
Conventional analytical skill that you have acquired, is hardly helpful. Many times you don’t even have a structured approach to solve problems. Be it mites at home or failing profits in a corporate, we generously use trial and error method. In doing so, we consume disproportionate energy, time and resources.
Have you ever wondered, why?
Even most simple problems, such as forgetting to refill your grocery stock, have multiple underlying reasons that are interlinked to each other. As a result, using simple analytical tools such as charts, graphs, tables, etc, we will never be able to solve these problems.
Whereas our brain has enormous capability to easily understand non-linear & multidimensional relationships and solve complex problems if we are willing to ‘visualize’!
Visualization is not a pure art form. So you don’t need to be an artist, or be gifted. And neither do you need to glaze at a whiteboard in a silent room to visualize. There are proven tools with clear procedures that can be learnt and used to effectively solve problems visually.
