1. Write down a list of the steps involved in a complex everyday task, such as grocery shopping, or doing laundry.
2. Try to combine your list of steps or actions into four main categories.
3. Divide a page into four sections.
4. In each section, draw an item or simple scene that that represents that activity (for example, a grocery bag or shopping cart, folding laundry, etc).
The test for success on this exercise is to ask a friend to guess what task you chose by looking at your drawings.
