Sometimes color helps. Sometimes it just gets in the way. That's just one example of the lack of simple prescriptions for how to use visual materials to clearly communicate scientific concepts or research results. It all depends on the particulars, Felice Frankel explains patiently in seminars at MIT and in her new book, "Visual Strategies," published this fall by Yale University Press.

Fun Visualization Activities It's fun to be a kid doing fun visualization activities! Here's what I'm talking about. Kids love to talk about what they want to be when they grow up. In pre-K and Kindergarten, even first grade, they are dared to dream. They are taught to cut pictures from magazines and with Elmer's paste and some construction paper, adhere the dreams in their imagination to together. These collages are proudly displayed around the classroom or the halls of school like the photo above, and then taken home to show mom and dad. That was fun! It was fun to take the time to see our dreams in front of us every day! This is the concept of the vision board for your business. Nothing new under the sun, right?! In this video, I show you two sides of the coin. The first is scrapbooking, or preserving your memories through taking pictures and journaling about your adventures. This allows us to see and remember where we've been. The second is the dream board. These are the memories we are yet to live but we still use pictures to clarify and see that. These kinds of fun visualization activities are more important than you think... and .. are actually kinda cool.
