Often, to do something worthwhile, getting started is the hardest part. Take going to the gym or writing this blog post. I feel great once I’m done, but I can come up with a million excuses not to even begin.
And so it is with data visualization, at least historically. Analysis paralysis rears its ugly head and you’ve thought of too many ways to depict your data to even begin to put pen to paper, or cursor to application, as the case may be. Conversely, you’re at your computer with a blank slate staring back at you and no earthly idea how you’ll begin to fill it. Sometimes, you have something created but the hoops you’d have to go through to change it creates a barrier to – you guessed it – starting.
