How doodles can help you get organized at work - St. Louis Business Journal | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Dulle was in college [when he] realized that doodling helped him remember facts and figures for tests better than note-taking did. For him, visual thinking is about translating spoken ideas into a visual space, which, much like sign language, means combining words and their meanings through graphics.

The Magic of Graphic Recording: Turning Live Talks into Visual Content

The Magic of Graphic Recording: Turning Live Talks into Visual Content | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Some people are better able to translate (and recall) information when visuals are involved. For Kelly, graphic recording is a no-brainer compared to taking primarily text-based notes. “Drawing simple pictures is actually a much quicker and more efficient way to capture ideas than to capture them word-for-word,” she says. “Ability and practice make it easier for other people to interpret your drawings, too.

 

To create this visual content, graphic recorders listen for key ideas in a conversation. They’re trained to recognize verbal cues to identify these key ideas and quickly replicate them through drawings. This skill helps them to capture the essence of a live presentation in a short amount of time — a feature that seems to enthrall audiences both online and in-person. Graphic recordings are so fresh, in fact, that much of their appeal resides in watching the process itself unfold...

Graphic recording marries words and images to convey an idea. The best part? The process happens live, usually at professional events where attendees can watch and learn.

Louise Quo Vadis's curator insight, November 26, 2013 11:50 AM

Well there is an idea. I like that very much. My ADD mind likes it too. Worth taking a look at this article.

Key advice from Jeanne King - I fire my inner critic and do it anyway. The biggest roadblock for being able to do this work is not one’s belief that they can or can’t draw: it’s fear.

Uma Sundaram's curator insight, April 25, 3:42 AM

The key is "Firing the inner critic". While drawing (or working on the chart) the inner critic is constantly evaluating my work and saying "There was definitely a better way of doing this"... These days my answer is "Yes! I am sure. But this is the way this chart is going to be done." While I make sure that I dont shortchange my client, I cannot have my inner critic clamouring for attention, when I have to listen to the client group
