A Thousand Words

I’m a huge fan of infographics. In my line of work, I often have to communicate technical information to people who aren’t technically-minded. In many cases, they aren’t even interested.

Worse yet, I need to share a lot of detail to explain a concept, so I tend to be long-winded. Infographics however, have the capacity to communicate a large amount of information in a manner that most people resonate well with, and these have helped me to avoid getting into the trap of verbosity.

I’ve even found that I get a point across faster, clearer, and with greater retention and agreement by the audience by simply conveying the concept visually.

As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.

So it begs the question, when did you last spend time sharing a thousand words, when just a picture would have sufficed?

SteveI am a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a friend, and a professional. Many men have a tendency to define themselves by what they do, and I don’t think I’m much different. I am a husband, because I do what a husband does; a father, because I do what a father does; a son, brother, and friend because I do what needs to be done for those roles.View all posts by Steve →
