Mind Mapping: A Powerful Tool for Visual Folks

Have you ever Mind Mapped before? It's a visual way to get your thoughts and goals down on paper. Mind mapping is a powerful tool for visual folks. (See the example Goals and Ways to Make Money Being Artistic mind map above.)

Often I have a kajillion ideas in my head and just wander around like a lost soul because I don't know where I'm supposed to be focusing.

Recently, a friend suggested that I write down my goals and ways to make money being artistic. So I asked him if mind mapping was a good idea and he said yes!

Next on the agenda is to break these ideas down so that they are do-able. I've already done some of the things on my map in a haphazard unfocused manner but now need to fine tune it.

If you are lost and need direction create a mind map... use colours, stickers or whatever floats your boat to get the thoughts out of your head and take the first step to Making it Real. You will most likely be amazed by the transformation of your dreams! •
