Why I love drawing like a little kid, forgetting everything around and focussing on that piece of paper as if my dear life depended on it?

Visual Harvesting Methods

Harvesting thoughts with a pen is rewarding in many ways, because it makes insights rise, shine and last with ease like no other method.

To the visual thinking crowd in Berlin: If you’re curious to try out visual harvesting methods that fit into a flip chart, today’s the opportunity to do so @ the Vizthink Meetup at Neukölln’s Kulturlabor Trial&Error.

For those of you who want to use visual tools in order to make your most desired change & impact happen, the next Visual Tribe’s workshop on May, 7th will help you to thrive doing that.

Remember that you are loved.

Today, everyday.
