We are bombarded, daily, by the visual word, the audible word, words that provoke kinaesthetic responses. Amidst such a barrage of words, the ‘value’ of the spoken word could be diminished. As a result, ‘communication’, the goal and function of the word, may never be attained. Words have arguably lost their creative power, and respect for them is decreasing.
Big picture thinking allows you to work in your own way, and that’s exactly what the Footnotes strategies do. The techniques also enable you to capture thoughts when you don’t yet know if they’re important, and work out how to communicate them, value them, order them, present them, or make decisions with them. Perhaps also how to promote those ideas, whilst making sure that your integrity and vision is maintained.
