🧠Exercise: Strengthen your visual perception
Let's explore a Van Gogh painting today.
Hi friends, you’ve probably seen the painting we will use in today’s exercise, The Room by Vincent Van Gogh, a hundred times but have you stopped to look closely at the details or do you quickly scan it and notice only the bed and the chairs and move on?
The goal of this exercise is to improve your visual perception so you can start noticing both the small and big details that are easily missed.
As you move fast throughout the day from one task to the next, it is a good reminder to slow down and observe what is right in front of you. To really see and not gloss over important details. I think this exercise will surprise you and over time you will be strengthening your visual perception so you don’t miss important details that are right in front of you.

Backstory: I learned about this exercise after watching Amy Herman’s amazing Google talk Visual Perception, Change your perception, change your life. You should definitely watch the video and then read the book.
