"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."— Leonardo da Vinci

Welcome Aspiring Visual Thinker

I would like to congratulate you for taking the first step towards becoming a better visual thinker. This first step is probably the hardest step for most aspiring visual thinkers. It's of course the step that involves breaking boundaries and stepping outside our comfort zone in order to learn how put our thoughts down on paper (tablet) in creative ways.

It's of course perfectly okay to feel a little apprehensive about this process. After all if you are like most people you probably haven't indulged in the act of doodling since early childhood. It's a shame though that schools don't encourage us to doodle our thoughts down on paper because the act of doodling provides great value in terms of learning, expanding your creativity, clarifying your thoughts and helping you overcome your life's problems.

My hope is that you will discover over the course of 40 days that doodling can be fun, easy and extremely beneficial for you whether at school, work or at play.

Over the course of the next 40 days I will take you through step-by-step how to doodle and also how to make the most from your new visual thinking skills.

What to Expect

So what have I got planned for you over the next 40 days? Well you will receive an email from me once each day with a new course module. Each module provides you with a short introduction about each topic. Reading through this information will provide you with the details you need to help you do some quick doodling/visual thinking exercises that follow.

Because we are working step-by-step through this course, each exercise from the previous day will build on the exercises you will do the following day. Therefore we will begin very slowly and carefully introducing you to the process of doodling and visual thinking. But over time expect that as your skills improve the difficulty level of the exercises will also be a little more challenging. And that's okay, because by that time you should be fully ready and primed to tackle them.

Each of the exercises won't take too much time. They are short exercises that might only take you a few minutes to complete. However, feel free to expand on what you are learning and put in a little more time into this process.

Guidelines for Working Through this Course

As you work through this course you will no doubt be doing a lot of doodling, drawing, sketching, or whatever you might like to call it. Whether you do these sketches on a tablet or on paper does not matter. Whatever is most convenient for you. However, what I would suggest is that you keep all your doodles in one place for easy reference. For instance you could have a designated notebook that you use as you progress through the 40 days.

Having a designated notebook will keep all your doodles in one place and will also allow you to track your progress as you work through this course.

I would also recommend working together with a partner. Of course this partner doesn't have to be an adult. If you have kids then get them involved. Maybe they will help inspire you a little. 🙂 No matter who it is, it's always of great value to work with someone else throughout this process.

As you've already seen, Day 1 of this course jumps straight into the process of doodling. I don't provide any background information about visual thinking or the value you would get from learning how to doodle because I understand that everyone has different reasons for going through this course. However, if you are curious to discover the science behind the doodle and the value of visual thinking, then I would recommend you visit the following links:

  • What is a Doodle: An article describing what a doodle is, what is required to become a proficient doodler, and the distinction between a doodle and an IQ doodle.
  • Hardwired to Think Visually: An article discussing how we are hardwired to think visually.
  • Visual Thinking in Education: Analyzes the state of the current education system and why visual thinking skills must be taught at schools.
  • Doodle Studies: This article looks at three studies that showcase the value of doodling and how it can be used to improve learning and comprehension.
  • Visual Thinking Through Time: Examples of how visual thinking has been used through the ages.
  • Visual Thinking Magic: This website provides you with a few dozen articles that introduce you to the process of visual thinking and the value that this can bring into your life.

Above all, have fun and enjoy this process. Remember that when it comes to doodling there is no right or wrong. Everyone has their own personal style. When it comes to becoming an effective visual thinker, it's not so much about your doodling skills but rather about getting your ideas across in the most effective way. You don't need to become the next Leonardo da Vinci. You just need to be "you" and make the most of this process.

It's All About Working on the Fundamentals...

When I first began my doodling journey I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I couldn't doodle, and I definitely couldn't draw. However, I progressively took the time to master the basics of doodling.

Over many weeks and several months, I gained more confidence and expanded my skills. I eventually reached a point where I actually felt comfortable drawing cartoon figures such as the ones you see below.

Therefore, when I started, I was probably where you are right now. I had no clue or idea about what I was doing. However, by working on the fundamental principles of doodling (that you will work through within this course) I was able to develop the necessary skills and hand-eye coordination for doodling, and to some extent drawing.

I'm of course no Picasso. And there are plenty of people out there who doodle and draw much better than I do. However, my goal wasn't to become an artist. All I wanted was to learn how to doodle so that I could express myself in a visual way. And that I suspect might also be your goal too.

As you make progress through this 40 Day Doodle Course, I will actually show you examples of how I started my doodling journey. You will see some of my early doodles and what they looked like.

I'm showing you the above cartoon doodles not to impress you, but rather to give you a little inspiration that if you work on the fundamental principles of doodling, that you too can create drawings like this within less than 3 months. However, you must apply yourself and practice, practice and practice to gain most value from this course. 🙂

Do You Want to Jump Ahead?

I can understand that you might be very eager to get started and would probably jump through all 40 days over a weekend if you could. Well if that's the case, then I would like to offer you the opportunity to gain access to the entire 40 day course in one sitting.

If you are up for it and simply can't wait, then you can gain full access to the entire doodle course immediately by purchasing it here for $40.00 AUD.

      Hi Vika. Welcome 🙂 It’s great having you part of the doodle course. I initially started with a Samsung Note tablet. This is very good to use for doodling purposes. Android has plenty of apps that you can download. I now use a Microsoft Surface Pro, but there really isn’t much difference between the Surface and the Samsung tablet. It’s more about preference. The Samsung tablet has a very thin stylus pen. I like this, but it’s not for everyone. The Surface has a standard stylus thickness just like a normal pen. Bamboo Paper is the app I would recommend on the Surface tablet. On the Samsung I would recommend Sketchbook. The iPad also has plenty of drawing apps. However, I don’t use an iPad so I couldn’t provide you with any recommendations. I hope that helps. 🙂

    Just learnt that you’re offering doodle 40 days course for free. Its great and exciting stuff however I’m apprehensive about its implementations and benefits in my day to day life. Will it help me taking visual notes instead of dairy?
    How can I increase my efficiency of routine and benefit from it?

      Hi Dineish. The course is designed to get you feeling more comfortable with doodling. Once you have a good level of comfort and confidence with doodling, you will be able to use this skill to create visual notes or mind maps. Moreover, you will be able to communicate more effectively in a visual way. That can be of value during meetings, presentations, or when you’re teaching a subject.

      Toward the back-end of the course we have several lessons that explore how to take notes visually. I hope that helps answer your question.

    My brother got all the artistic talents in my family so if you can get me to fake artistic then you will have succeeded. Make me a real artist and it will be a miracle. My stick figures even look bad.

    • Adam Sicinski

      Reply Reply June 18, 2016

      Hi Gramama. It’s great to have you here. 🙂 Doodling isn’t so much about being artistic, it’s rather about expressing ourselves in the simplest way possible to help get our ideas across. We are therefore not looking for perfection in our creations, but rather to create something that expresses our thoughts in an effective way, even if our stick figures look a little wonky. 😉 However, with practice, doodling can certainly become a form of art.

      Over the 40 days we start out simple, but things do get a little more involving as we move along. I hope you will find the course of value. 🙂

I think this could be just the help I need to get me started. Unfortunately the images in the Element Gallery are too small to read and when enlarged are too pix elated to be able to read them. A simple typed list along side in larger text would be a great help.

      The Visual Thinking Magic website is where everything kind of started. That website hasn’t been updated in awhile and it’s kind of an unfinished project that I hope to get back to at a later stage.

      With the Element Gallery on the VTM website, I would suggest to right click the images and save them onto your desktop. This will allow you to enlarge the images to view each section in more detail. I hope that helps 🙂

    I have tried several times to register for your class and I have never received an email. I noticed someone else had the same problem so I tried what you ask her to try and I couldn’t find any emails. I have a junk folder and a clutter folder but it isn’t in either one of those and I usually don’t have any problems with emails not coming through at all.

    Thanks,

      Hi Susan. I’m sorry you are having trouble locating this email. My records show that confirmation is still pending on your subscription. What I assume has happened is that this email has either been deleted by accident or you might have a filter that has either deleted the email automatically, or transferred it into another folder. I once had a filter set up that was deleting emails with a specific word, and it was the reason why I wasn’t receiving certain emails. I have however manually registered you again for the doodle course. Please keep an eye out for another email to come through. And of course, please let me know if it is received. 🙂

      Hi Maria,

      I have checked your subscription status and it shows that you have received up to Day 1 lesson. Could I please ask you to do two things for me:

    • Please check your spam folder for these emails. If they are not there, then please try step 2 below.
    • Within your email search field type “Doodle Course”. You can also try searching for “info@IQdoodle.com”.
    • If for any reason you are still unable to locate these emails, then please check to see if you have any filters set up that could either be moving these emails into other folders or deleting them altogether.

      I hope this helps. Please let me know how you go.

      Hi Poornima. I’ve checked the status of your subscription and it looks as though you have located these emails. They can at times get lost in the spam folder.

    Namaste Adam Ji! I am so excited to start your course. I am obsessed with taking notes. I feel that I would love to refer back to the interesting information I learn at meetings, assemblies and seminars however my notes are boring. I have in the past found myself doodling as I take notes but my doodles do not make sense. You see, I am a lousy artist. I became very excited last weekend when I noticed a women taking visual notes at a meeting. As I kept her note taking techniques in mind I realized that visual note taking may be for me. I am now learning the Hindi language and script. Note taking is nearly impossible for a beginning language learner. However, if I learn how take Doodle notes I will be able to take notes in visual language as I do understand about 60% of the content of Hindi discourses. May I thank you in advance for making this course available. No doubt it took much time and effort to put it together. I can’t wait to get started, Lorraine

      Hi Lorraine. Thanks for introducing yourself. It’s great to have you part of the 40 Day Doodle course. 🙂 I think the course will help you to improve your visual note-taking skills. We don’t really get to the fundamentals of note-taking until the final 10 lessons of the course. All other lessons before that just focus on improving doodling skills. But that’s where all the fun is. 🙂 This course is also not about artistic skills. It’s rather about presenting ideas in the simplest way possible to get our desired message across.

      What you will find while working through this course is that everybody has their own personal style for creating doodles. I would suggest copying other people’s doodles until you reach a point where you feel comfortable with developing your own style.

      I hope you will find the course of value, and I of course welcome any submissions you might like to make as you work your way through the 40 days 🙂

    My two pence: I love that the doodles include concepts, rather than just concrete things. I don’t draw well and a physical item usually doesn’t remotely resemble my rendition. However, who is to say how an idea should look? Think apple vs. gravity 🙂 Again, thank you for including the conceptual doodles!

      Hi Norman. It’s great having you part of the course. Welcome on board 🙂 Taking visual notes is a fantastic way to help us remember the content of a book. For one of the books I recommended: “The Slight Edge” I’m actually creating my own visual notes of the material. When I’m done I will make these notes freely available and share them on the IQ Doodle blog. I normally read a book, highlight key insights and ideas and then go back and either create a mind map or in this case build visual notes about the topic. It will be available on the blog later this month or next month. But it’s certainly of value to take your own visual notes of the book. When it’s personal it’s more meaningful.

      I hope you will find the course of value.

      Hi Lesa. This course is absolutely free. When you register you will receive daily emails for each of the 40 lessons. However, you can also purchase the course for $27 AUD from the IQ Doodle Shop if you would like to either support the work I do here or to gain access to all the 40 lessons at once. You can then work through all of them over a weekend. 🙂 Although that might be quite an overwhelming experience. 🙁 And of course when you make payment you can start at any lesson you like and go back to it as often as you like.

      At the conclusion of the 40 days there are several months of weekly follow-up emails where I help you build your visual vocabulary. To receive these emails you will just need to stay subscribed to the mailing list after the 40 days passes. More about that on Day 9 and Day 40 of the course. I hope that helps answer your question. Please let me know if you need any further clarification.

When I came by your website I thought it very helpful as I cannot even draw matchstick people…my skills are none when it comes to doodling. Because of my busy schedule I may not be sitting at my desk doodling every day although I will try very hard to do so. Please do not think it is because I am not taking an interest because I will learn how to doodle; even if it takes me longer than it should. Thank you so much for offering this to everyone as until I get a job finances are really tight right now.

    Hi Adam. Great initiative! would love to purchase the course and contribute to your great initiative, but I want to pay with my credit card directly- I don’t have a paypal account… would it be possible? thank you!!!

      Hi Almudena. Thank you for your support. All payments for the course go through PayPal, however you certainly don’t need a PayPal account to make a purchase. PayPal offers those without a PayPal account the ability to purchase items using a credit or debit card. Once you are on the PayPal payment page, please look for a link that says “Do not have a PayPal account?”. Clicking on this link will allow you to make the payment using a credit or debit card. The payment of course still uses PayPal as the payment provider but without the need of having a PayPal account. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need any further clarification.

    I’m curious if you teach any courses on doodling on a computer – using any computer programs to perform the doodling ?

      Hi Phylis. The only course available at the moment is this How to Doodle course. The examples I show for each lesson are created using Sketchbook Pro, however I don’t have any particular lessons that instruct how to use the program. Although, you will find some great tutorial videos on YouTube. For instance here is a tutorial video that runs through the basics of Sketchbook Pro. I hope this helps.

      Hi Wojtek. No, you certainly don’t need to do any more. I’ve checked your records and it shows that you should have already received the Day 1 email. Please do check your Spam folder or double check any email filters you might have set up. Sometimes these emails do end up in these folders. Adding info@iqdoodle.com to your contact list will also help to ensure that the emails stay in the Inbox. Please let me know how you go.

      Hi Harry. I assume you are right clicking in your browser and selecting “print”. When I do the same I need to change page layout to landscape and extend the margins outwards. This way all the content on the page can be printed. If you are having trouble, please try using another browser to see if you get different results. I use Google Chrome and it appears to be selecting the entire page for printing. I hope this helps. Please let me know how you go.

      Hi Nolan. It’s great having you a part of this course. I look forward to seeing the progress you make with your kids. I’m sure they will keep you motivated and inspired. 🙂

      I will certainly keep everyone posted about the workshops. I plan to get an online component up and running (that’s adult and kid friendly), so you will certainly gain a lot of insights about the format and content of the workshops. In fact, this 40 Doodle Course lays down the foundations for an introductory doodling workshop that can get the ball rolling. The focus here is on developing confidence with doodling for visual note-taking. The next stage after this is to introduce a self-improvement layer where doodling can be used as a platform for making better decisions, setting goals, solving problems, for thinking creatively, and more. But that second stage is still under development. I hope you and your kids gain value from the course. See you on Day 1. 🙂

    This is simply awesome! Judging by the awesome images you use in your IQ Matrix Mind Maps, I think this initiative will be just what I am looking for.
    I am a keen Mind Mapper that still does a lot of ‘pen and paper’ Mind Maps. I can’t wait to build up my Visual Vocabulary, as it’s the one thing that I would like to improve in my Mind Maps.
    I’m also glad the course is spread over a period, as I need to take it slowly, as I haven’t doodled in ages!

      Hi Faizel. It’s great having you part of this course. 🙂 Even though this course doesn’t cover mind mapping, the doodling techniques we go through here can certainly be used to spice up our mind maps. I look forward to seeing your progress and I hope you will find the course of some value.

      Hi Deborah. It’s great having you here. 🙂 I never grew up drawing. I did doodle stuff when I was a kid while sitting in class a little bored, but I wasn’t very good. Eventually doodling turned into writing and I lost that part of myself. I think I kind of lost that “imaginative” side that I had as a kid. Picking it up again when I was at University was a little bit of a struggle. I think I just lost that confidence and the “carefree” approach I had. Working with mind maps gave me inspiration to start doodling again. But early on I tended to be very critical of my work saying to myself that it just wasn’t artistic or pretty enough. I was really hard on myself. However, I soon realized that I had no intention of being an artist. I just wanted to doodle in a “good enough” way to help me express my ideas visually. And so I found peace with that and gave up trying to be an artist. Sometimes my doodles come out a little better and other times “not so good:. 🙁 It’s okay to be imperfect. I think it comes with the territory. And especially when it comes to visual thinking, it’s all about expressing ideas quickly to help clarify our thoughts. That’s where the true power of doodling lies.

      I hope you will gain value as you move through the course. And of course I look forward to seeing your progress over the 40 days.

    Visual Thinking is a delightful way to learn and express effectively without limitations.
    Let this become widespread and let a new Thinking Revolution emerge, reshaping the way man thinks, lives and prospers.
    Thanks a lot Adam, for making such a powerful learning tool available to those who desire !

      Thanks Joseph. I love the way you think. 🙂 Doodling and visual thinking should no doubt be encouraged from the youngest of age. Then when we grow up it just becomes a natural part of life and living — a natural way we use to go about solving problems, making decisions and all the other good stuff that comes with learning how to think visually. 🙂 It’s great having you here, and I look forward to seeing your progress over the 40 days.

    I really thank you for the opportunity you give us to learn about Doodle! I am sure it will be really helpful both for me and my students since visual thinking will help even the shyest ones to express themselves.

      Hi Glykeria. It’s wonderful to have here. 🙂 I hope that the doodle course can help you work more visually with your students in class. The shyest students are often very creative. They just need someone to show them how to express their ideas, perspectives and feelings more readily. And I think that doodling and visual thinking is the perfect medium. I look forward to hearing more about your work with students and seeing your progress as you move through this course.

    Adam, thank you for offering this course for free, this is so very kind of you. I can’t tell you how many times your insights have been just the thing that I needed to hear. Today it was your doodle “There is never a right time”. It so captured exactly how I have been struggling lately! I’ve alway admired your visual maps and wished that I could express myself in that way. I am so excited to begin this journey for the next 40 days. I can not begin to express my gratitude for all the inspiration you have brought into my life over the years that I have been a part of the community you have created through your work!
