Index / note cards _ I organize my thoughts by creating slides in "thumbnail view". I select a slide, type my thoughts, and add any visualizations I want. With PowerPoint in "thumbnail view", I move slides around as if they are index cards as I organize my thoughts. Add / delete slides as appropriate. Then print all slides as 6 or 9 slides/per page to have a printout of the "note cards". Give PowerPoint a second look and see if you can use it as an idea visualization tool. Love it rather than leave it and you just might convey your thoughts and organize your messages more effectively.cle Source: http://EzineArticles.com
