I just have an idea to do two simple hands-on exercises with readers.

Take out a blank sheet of A4-sized paper & a set of colour markers or crayons. Draw four large squares on it.

Now, take two minutes to draw or paint any images or pictures you like with the four large squares. Do it quickly. Don't think too hard. Just draw it.

Upon completion, let's move to the next one, with a slight variation.

Use a new sheet of A4-sized paper. Take two minutes to draw or paint a picture of your dream home as you will have drawn it as a kid. Again, do it quickly. Don't think too hard. Just draw it.

Take a close look at each of your completed drawings. What do you see?

I have actually written a blog post with the same foregoing title in the 'Optimum Performance Technologies' weblog last year. Here's the link to it, if readers are curious about what I am trying to do.

To satisfy your full curiosity, I will definitely debrief the two foregoing exercises in the Next Post.
