Time flies and 2015 left us without any warnings. But we shouldn’t feel any remorse of what we couldn’t achieve on 2015 or that everything we did was not according to what we have planned as 2016 is providing us with new 366 blank sheets of planning new goals and achieving past goals. Let’s use this open and new opportunities, learn our mistakes from the past to turn over a new leaf. Planning is the important action that everyone seems to misjudge. It is as important as our favorite TV series. Sometimes, people failed to accomplish what they wanted because of lack of planning or they don’t even bother to plan ahead at all. In some other cases, there are people who love to plan ahead but doesn’t have the means or every means and tools or planning templates that they have been using before don’t excites them and probably not so user-friendly and causing them to lost the will or interest in planning and executing their plans. It is like you’ve been provided with a piece of blank paper and you have to create a magnificent fie breathing dragons. It is unachievable. So, the big question is what are the ways or means that will excite people to the bones on planning and help them in planning their 2016? It is said that visualization is the best way to see things, well you don’t say. Of course visualization helps people to see. But what I’m trying to say here is that what if we use visualization in our planning activities. Don’t we all just got bored looking at words with no images and colors and shapes? But with colorful visualization plus the images it will help in our planning, we can see better what we have planned, this will excites us and give us the moral that we needed to achieve those plans and goals. You can use colors and image or shapes to determine your plan priorities like losing weight in 2016 is your top priority and it should be in red color with relatable images while planning on eating all the best foods is super top priority and should be in super red color with bigger super-size images. With visualization planning, it will open your eyes and you will see and understand things quickly without ever need to read. Just look at the plans and execute. Remember, visualization is not only meant for planning. You can also use visualization to forecast the results of your planning. You can use colors like red is danger and you have to start modifying your plans and green is okay and you can just proceed with your planning. What if we just use wording in forecasting our plans? Yes, it would still be okay if you use wording but with visualization it will make things much easier and more fun! You don’t have to read line by line and try to understand the results of your planning. Like I said before, just look at the plans and execute. There you go the magic and wonders of visualization. Visualization utilizations are limitless and you can do about anything with it. We want to tell you more about it but we really don’t want to bore you with line by line wording, we would rather just visualize it to you. LOL. So, start your game face and start visualizing your planning! Good luck and may the visualization be with you. But don’t take our word for it. Explore Tableau visual analytics for everyone here.
