What it takes to be a visionary

Being a visionary has much more about talking visually than you imagine. Have you ever tried to explain a new Idea without giving it a story? I may sound funny, but when we try to bring something new or innovative, we put it in context; we explain it in a way to impact people around us. Have you ever noticed that?

What it takes to be a visionary

In science, we all want to be a visionary. We search for discoveries and persue unanswered questions. However, the one thing we usually forget is that to be visionaries, we need to think visually.

Evan Sinar worked with several companies and this matter is not exclusive to scientists. Every person seems to struggle with thinking visually. But why is that?

“The ability of visual narrative is to synthesize and clarify ambiguous and complex business concepts in a clear way for people to understand what needs to be done from now on” Evan Sinar

What it takes to be a visionary

The point is that just talking or writing information is not enough. According to Evan Sinar, we also need to transform information into comprehensive and convincing way. That means presenting information visually – and being a visionary.

Some examples of how to present information visually are:

Entrepreneurs, businessmen, teachers, researchers and, well, scientists are always overwhelmed with the amount of new information every day. To make right decisions, all of us need to be able to interpret data. Visual information can help – a lot.

In the future, we will count on artificial intelligence to do the hard work for us. As for now, we still need to figure out things for our own.
