as the saying goes – A picture is worth thousand words – well, I thing it depends on how legible a picture is. I was reading in one of the books recently about the general statistics on how people perceive communication via reading, most times a piece of information can be conveyed with a help of a visual notation. Although, I am not following that approach yet, but me being a visual thinker would always prefer writing on a piece of paper / white board while I am trying to convey anything.
I have noticed the change in Rajesh’s blog in recent days. I really liked it. Specially the coincidence that Rajesh conveying about how to drive a more appropriate idea to another person and drawing a picture about it. I am now being inspired by that approach, I think I will try to adopt going forward.
I was reading a post on the Simple Dollar the other day [link] where Trent shared about a particular topic on 5 business cards. thats pretty neat.
Advantages as I figured reading an article with pictures on it:
- Easy to understand the subject
- Easier to present the big picture first and then elaborate as needed
- Saves time to the reader and helps grasp the topic and move on
- Stays longer in memory
… And many more
