Using Mind Maps Magazine celebrates its first birthday in the month of May.

For a lot of us, we don’t know what we want to be when we grow until we grow up; even then, our choices might turn out differently than we’d hoped — or just plain wrong. And while daydreaming of stardom or veterinary school is a practice we strongly encourage, it doesn’t always help turn your aspirations into action. Even those of us that are thrilled with the path we’re on can use some direction now and then — luckily, there are methods and tools that make analyzing our professional needs pretty easy…
This past week, I worked with one of my amazing clients from my coaching program to create her career master plan. She is a young, smart, and motivated entrepreneur finding her way in this world.

In fact, our entire existence revolves around the concept of visual images passing through us like clouds moving across the sky.
Given all this, is it really surprising that mind mapping is considered to be a fundamental key for accelerated learning?
While I was at University, I managed to perfect a method of studying from a mind map that dramatically accelerated my ability to learn and remember large chunks of information. In fact using this method, I managed to develop my capacity to achieve photographic memory…
Many types of work today involve a significant amount of research. As you gather large quantities of information, it can quickly become a jumble of confusing facts, figures and notes.
