How do you spend less money (and time)? Visualize the solution first. It is guaranteed to work and here is why:
- It helps you find holes. You can see where there is a gap in logic, the process, and/or the solution.
- It Gets everyone on the same page—fast. Everyone has to agree to this approach early in the development vs. later, which creates much more work.
- If you and your team can visualize the solution, you can quickly write to it. You can paint a vivid picture and tell a compelling story that is unforgettable.
We are visual creatures. We remember and connect with imagery far better than facts and figures. Painting a picture that tells a story is the fastest way to success. Andy Bounds, the author of The Jelly Effect: How to make your communication stick said it best when he stated, "Facts tell and stories sell."
In addition to lowering cost, visualizing the solution first has other benefits which include: increased moral, less miscommunication, better teamwork, and more time to focus on other important tasks that inevitably pop up.
Visualize the solution first and I guarantee that your labor costs will drop.
