There are three kinds of visual thinkers:
1. Collect everything we can to look at—the more the better.
2. Have a place where we can lay out everything and really look at it all, side by side.
3. Always define a basic coordinate system to give us clear orientation and position.
4. Find ways to cut ruthlessly from everything our eyes bring in—we need to practice visual triage.
1. Who and what ?
2. How much ?
3. When ?
4. Where ?
5. How ?
6. Why ?
The 6 W’s are used as coordinates for almost every descriptive picture we’re likely to face.
The SQVID is just a series of five questions that we walk our initial idea through in order to bring it to visual clarity and to refine its focus.
From just these six, we have the backbone framework for any problem-solving picture.
It has several different blades to help visually solve almost any kind of problem.
Go through all the pictures , you will get it.
“A picture is worth a thousand words.”
The point of a good picture isn’t to eliminate words; it’s to replace as many as possible so that the words we do use are the important ones. So as you work through your picture, make a point of describing—even if it’s only to yourself—what the pieces mean and why you’re drawing them.
“I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these 'HOW' and 'WHY' questions. Occasionally, I find an answer.” — Stephen Hawking
The Back of the Napkin proves that thinking with pictures can help anyone discover and develop new ideas, solve problems in unexpected ways, and dramatically improve our ability to share our insights. This book will help readers literally see the world in a new way.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
