The mission of this site is twofold:
1) Spread interesting ideas in a visually appealing and cognitively beneficial way.
I’m a big fan of good ideas. They make life interesting, they give us new perspective, and they expand our understanding of the world. I enjoy exploring new ideas and seeing how they fit in with other ideas that I have encountered before.
I strongly believe that ideas can change the world, and I want to use this site to spread ideas that I think are important – ideas related to education, creativity, critical thinking, and personal growth. Those are some but not all of the topics that I have addressed and will continue to address on this site.
2) Provide resources for those who are learning how to incorporate more visuals into their thinking and note taking processes.
The ability of an individual person to process, store, and access complex information is becoming increasingly important as the availability of such information continues to grow. I believe that incorporating more visuals into the processing of verbal ideas will help achieve the goal of greater understanding, longer retention, and quicker access to those ideas. As such, I want to help in the movement to spread the word about visual note taking and provide resources for those who are learning how to incorporate this way of processing information into their daily life.
