Visual Intelligence

This is one of my favorite books I've read. It is a great how to book and will improve your observation skills, situational awareness, and communication skills.

The book, Visual Intelligence: Sharpen Your Perception, Change Your Life, is written by Amy E. Herman who is an art historian and a lawyer. She teaches others to use observation in their everyday life for both work and personal improvement. I highly encourage all to read this book. As a side benefit, it will increase your appreciation for art.

Below I will quote parts of the book and make notes for my future reference.

The book is broken into four parts (Four A's): Assess, Analyze, and Articulate, and Adapt.

Also, Autopilot - turn it off. We tune out due to habits, boredom, laziness, and overstimulation. "When we walk through the world on autopilot, our eyes might seem to take everything in, but in reality we are seeing less than we could if we were paying closer attention." p15

Slowing Down will combat the stress of speed and distraction stream. Learn to trust yourself (put your phone away).
