The Ultimate Planning Guide: Living 3 Months at a time intentionallyThis is Day 4 of a larger 5 day planning guide.  Please join me at Day 1 and move through the subsequent days.  This post won’t make much sense with out the previous posts.

Mind Map
“A mind map is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts. It is a visual thinking tool that helps structuring information, helping you to better analyze, comprehend, synthesize, recall and generate new ideas.  Just as in every great idea, its power lies in its simplicity.”–

For you it will serve as a tool that:

  • Diagrams information around a central subject. —
  •  Includes sub topics and even more sub topics.
  •  Better than text/lists for seeing how things are connected.
  • Offers a non-linear way of thinking through a problem.
  • An at-a-glance map for the months in your 90 day plan.

Mind Map How To








You can either do a mind map with pen and paper (for those creative types) or you could even do a mind map with a computer (for those more logical types). If you aren’t sure which method is for you, you can try both and see which one you like or you could take a quiz here to see if you are more right brained (creative) or left brained (logical).

If you would like an explanation of how to use mind mapping in general here is an article from Litemind that is pretty good. What is Mind Mapping?

Now that you have got the above components it is time to put your 90 days into some sort of workable action. This is where it all comes together on your calendar and into your life.
