Hi Kaiser;
This is very helpful and I have already shared with work colleagues. I'd like to note though, that your convention of blocked out nodes being well done confused me for a minute. Since the node indicator Q, D or V was missing I assumed that meant NOT done well. Just my $0.02 CDN.


Have you ever considered making the visual for your trifecta checkup the classic three-circle Venn diagram?


It would be good to include on the chart *either* a brief legend explaining what the nodes represent *or* a short form url to an article on the trifecta checkup. As it is, if I don't know what D, Q and V are, I have no way of finding out.


Bob/MJD: Thanks for the suggestions. Will make version 2 soon.

Derek: Not a fan of Venn diagrams but I could see how it applies here.


Kind of a junk chart itself without a legend, don't you think?


Thanks for several readers for their feedback. I just posted a new version of the taxonomy diagram.
