I can be a real geek sometimes.
And, not just your typical, Tolkien-quoting LOTR geek, either. (Though, I am totally one of those.)
I get geeky about things like the perfect notebook, calendaring, and a really well done Excel spreadsheet.
I also get seriously geeky about mind mapping. Seriously.
Mind whatting? If you have no idea what mind mapping is, you can get a quick 101 from my post, Secret Marketing Weapon: The Brand Mind Map.
After that (or, if you already kind of know what a mind map is), I’d like to invite you to take a listen to a podcast on which fellow mind mapping addict Michael Tipper (he’s the one with the lovely accent) interviews me about how I discovered mind mapping and just how I use it in both my personal and professional lives:
I will warn you that the first seven or so minutes are a bit chatty, so you may want to skip those and get right to the meat of the conversation.
Michael and I recorded the interview waaaaaay back in January and he broadcast it over the summer, but somehow I never got around to sharing it. (Couldn’t be because of my unbridled gushing and a few too many mentions of cats, could it? Maybe.)
ANYway … I thought this would be a great time to share the podcast. The end of the year is creeping up on us (or, more accurately, bearing down on us), so it’s the perfect opportunity to take a step back and do some mind mapping to look at the year behind and the year ahead. Maybe mind map that new project you’ve been contemplating, or perhaps you could use it to rough out a 2014 editorial calendar. Anything is possible. You never know where a mind map will take you.
I hope you’ll give a listen and indulge my attempt to get everyone mind mapping.
Oh! And if you have ANY questions, don’t hesitate to drop me a comment or a private email. I am always happy to talk about mind mapping. Always.
