While there’s always going to be some people who can end up with wonderful charting results without any planning, it does not work that way for everyone. To understand this better, let’s explore an analogy. Have you seen those folks, who have the gift of the ladle? They need no clues about what they are cooking, yet they just seem to know what to do next. And they end up creating a culinary masterpiece. But most others cannot do so, and may end up with a culinary disaster without planning. It works the same way with charts — the more you plan, the better your charts will look, and be more capable of explaining your numerical message to the audience.

Planning your chart before you begin is a great way to create better charts.
