Finding the answers to What, When, & Where

by | Saturday, October 14, 2017

  3. WHERE should it happen?

Turns out these questions can be answered just by replacing just one letter—namely replace “W” with “T.” Here they are:

  1. That
  2. Then
  3. There

Simple.

Here is a visual representation of the same idea that I created while at a meeting the other day.
