Content Covered: Mind Map -> Action Plan
Often times when I find my self stuck or confused I create a mind map of the questions lurking in my mind, so as to find the associations and patterns between my thoughts and gain some clarity on what it is that I need to do.
Normally after the mind map exercise I usually make a list of some action items and call it a day, but this time I decided to take my strategy to another level.
Currently, I’m experimenting with a concept of hierarchical goals, more specifically identifying one or two life philosophies and then seeing how my goals and efforts align and enable – or take away, from living with this philosophy.
<…sounds a bit like project planning huh? Fear not- we need not get so granular… >
I would encourage everyone to experiment with mind mapping and perhaps even identify the key philosophies with which you choose to spend your time in this life…
The diagraming tool that I use is free and web based: LucidChart.com
The format for breaking down your goals and the concept behind life philosophies, I obtained from Angela Davis’ Book: Grit.
