With the capability of the human brain to processvisuals being far greater than its ability to understand text,its important to note that words are based on a complexsymbol system which must be decoded by the brain beforethey can be understood, whereas visuals require virtuallyno effort. After all, a child can be taught to associatepictures with different meanings years before they can betaught how to read sentences. Applying this same principleto our daily to-dos allows us to see that if visually represented, they are far easier to processthan if they are set out in a text-heavy format.Bestselling author and world-renowned expert on creativity and innovative thinking skills,Chris Griffiths, explains the problem with many existing solutions Paper lists, post it notesand spreadsheets can have an adverse effect on productivity if theyre being used to organize tasksand to-dos, especially when working collaboratively.We live in a culture where we want to convey and digest information quickly, and this isemphasized by the increasing popularity of apps such as Snapchat, Pinterest and Instagram, wherethe focus has shifted away from text and more emphasis placed on visuals. Even Twitter limits thecharacter count - ensuring your message is easily digested.Griffiths adds If visuals allow us to communicate in a concise and clear manner, then we shouldapply these principles in the workplace too.Engage your team and unlock your potentialThe use of color has been shown to alter the levels of alpha brain wave activity, triggeringalertness. This is especially useful when getting team members fired up to tackle a set oftasks as colors can subconsciously motivate the individual to perform beyond expectations.Tasks slipping your memory? Images are the answer</p><p> "Visuals allow us tocommunicate in a conciseand clear manner...Weshould be applying theseprinciples in theworkplace."</p><p>CHRIS GRIFFITHS, FOUNDERAND CEO OF DROPTASK</p></li><li><p>Additional LinksSign up to DropTask for freeLearn more about the DropTask features</p><p> Categories:Business, Management, Software</p><p> Tags:Employee Engagement, Project Management, ToDo List</p><p>The brains ability to remember images is far better than its memory for words. Words areprocessed by our short term memory, whereas images are directed through our long termmemory and become much more deeply ingrained as a result. Using imagery and visualsallows the brain to make plans and action items unforgettable.Go easy on your brain; use visuals, not spreadsheetsThe last thing we want is to expend large amounts of energy deciphering what we have to dobefore weve even begun doing it.
