Start: prepare to draw
About a year ago I attended one business meeting, which proved to me (literally in one day) that all my thoughts on the possibilities of pictures are absolutely correct. This meeting not only perfectly illustrated the idea of how useful it is to think about things, use pictures, but also that pictures could provide (which did not happen) a different result.
Last summer, the leaders of a large financial company - let's call it AmericanWay Financial * - invited me to hold a seminar on visual thinking as part of the annual meeting of leaders. AmericanWay has just completed the next fiscal year with a record result, and the board of directors wanted to take advantage of the accumulated positive energy and conduct classes that can push employees to new thinking. The Executive Committee considered my idea of solving problems with the help of pictures interesting enough, and I gladly accepted the invitation.
* This is not a real name. All the stories in the book are true, but some companies asked me not to mention their names. I used the original names only with the permission of the companies. Hereinafter, except for the stipulated cases - Notes of the author.
I was looking forward to the beginning of the seminar: financial managers tend to believe only one type of pictures (charts of fluctuations in stock prices), so I had an opportunity to show skeptical audience how to use various kinds of simple pictures to solve problems. And I myself had an excellent reason to learn more about the internal mechanisms of the huge financial company.

- So when will we draw pictures?
Perhaps you noticed that we have already gone through the SQVID several times, but we have not drew anything yet. This is normal: the sense of working SQVID half is to make us think about visual options. The exercise that we just completed has switched so many transmissions in the eyes of our thinking and has involved so many neurons that we are already more than ready to bring
- How can we draw "human" pictures for business?
So, approaching the end of our seminar, let's talk about something that is never discussed at business meetings. Throw away your presentation pages with clearly marked and boring lists of questions and show them hand-drawn pictures instead. And even better - draw these pictures right at the meeting. Forward! Meetings and meetings should not be predictably boring *! * Say this
Down and Out trouble started. Proverb Here is a typical example of a mediocre beginning, which evokes a yawn: "Today (I understand that it was not yesterday) I (I understand that it is not Mama Horse) I will say (it is clear that you do not bleat) to you (it is clear that not to the horses) about ... and finally, a theme that no one needs anymore is heard. Heard this? Did you start to get comfortable to sleep? .. So how do you start? For example, the report on marriage and family. You
- Drawings for solving business problems: how to draw?
It is much more important to take the first step and at least draw something on the sheet, the longer and painfully to think about it. You can start with a circle, and then give it a name.

My program of purification, which is easily built into everyday life, provides for the performance of five important functions. 1. Reducing the load on the digestive system. Even if you do not feel it, the daily slight decrease in the body's energy reserves due to its consumption of allergic reactions day by day makes many people feel dull. Reduction

It is possible to start the IR when the cannulae is correctly installed and fixed, the ABC is above the critical level and the perfusionist is ready to work. Clamps with a cannula (superposed during the installation) are removed (first with venous, then with arterial), after which the main AIC pump is started. It is very important to ensure an adequate return of blood to the venous reservoir. Normally, the blood level in the reservoir rises, and

Language is an effective tool for the child's socialization, the formation of the personality, the expression of his personality.

The first concepts of the mental development of children arose under the influence of Darwin's evolutionary law and the so-called biogenetic law.

- Breastfeeding: the beginning, duration and practice of exclusive breastfeeding
Due to the lack of comprehensive and comparable data and unified international definitions, it is difficult to make any general statements about the prevalence of breastfeeding in the WHO European Region. Data on the percentage of children who are breastfeeding, shown in Fig. 8, are taken from various sources (27). These data should be approached with caution: survey techniques
- Black, yellow or red: what color is your pen?
During several hundred business meetings, I conducted a survey on how people are approaching the visual solution of problems. I found that all approaches are within a fairly clear spectrum. One extreme is people who are ready to constantly draw something, and the other is those who hate to take writing materials in their hands. ↑ When it comes to visual problem solving, we all
- How to find the tool for "live" drawing in POWER POINT
Although the tablet I use gives me the ability to draw directly on the screen (which greatly simplifies the process), you can use the usual computer mouse for this. In the fact that virtually any version of Power Point, released over the past five years, allows you to draw on the screen, there is nothing new. Here's how: 1.
