MIND MAP YOUR NOVEMBER!

MONDAY MUSINGS
November is passing by quickly–into the second week now!
If you are concerned about accomplishing all that you want to do for the remainder of November, make a plan for the month!
Mind map November! If you are unfamiliar with mind mapping, here is a link for you to check.
This strategy, developed by Tony Buzan http://www.thinkbuzan.com/uk/home and others, is useful for organizing your thoughts and ideas. With the use of color and branching out into various directions from a central idea or topic, it seems to inspire creativity. The site offers a free download of the current iMind Map, with limitations.
Suggestion: If you would like to try out the mind mapping process, take out a piece of paper, some markers and think about a special topic, such as Remembrance Day, which is coming up this week. What does Remembrance Day mean to you?
In the center of your page, print the topic; then, using various colors, branch out in 3 or 4 directions of related thoughts. These will lead to more items–memories, history, images. Before you know it you have a mind map “picture” of what Remembrance Day means.
After that is finished, try out the free download–see if you like to use that format.
Give it a try.
