New and Noteworthy
Are you ready to give Mind Mapping a try?
To say I'm a big fan of mind mapping would be a massive understatement. I use mind maps every day, both for professional and personal purposes. Author and blogger Karol Krol
Why use mind maps?
One of the biggest issues we face in the workplace is the need to balance our goals with the number of tasks we need to accomplish each day.
Although the most common method to get organized is a bullet point list, it's not necessarily the most effective method. This is where Mind Mapping comes in.
Mind Mapping is a powerful graphic technique that uses colour, key images and words to summarize, sort and retain information, replacing traditional note taking.
It helps us follow our natural thought process, with branches drawn out in different directions. It's easy to add information with a new branch, and to find information by following the branches.
People and organizations need to maximize their effectiveness and efficiency, and Mind Mapping can help with:
- Thinking and Planning - Think effectively and with flexibility at the beginning of a project or presentation.
- Prioritizing - Make sense of different aspects of your work and life, and prioritize goals going forward.
- Creativity and Innovation - Generate and capture fresh perspective and new ideas.
- Organizational Change - Understand inter-relationships between different aspects of a situation.
- Information Overload - Summarize information efficiently and in a way that is usable and accessible.
- Lifelong Learning - Enhance your memory and recall.
So why not give it a try!
