Think in pictures. Make your intentions visual and you’ll surprise yourself with the image. There’s a reason everyone talks about “the big picture.” Pictures and images connect people to thoughts and goals and help turn valuable ideas into action. So get graphic. Whenever you can, wherever you can, start building a visual element into your thinking. Storyboard it, diagram it, mindmap it, whiteboard it, butcher-paper the walls and go crazy. Show progress against your goals in an appealing, unboring way. Show people the gripping picture of the future by telling the story in a powerful way, using imagery to describe the goal.
