MindManager Monthly Idea Map

In my work, I create monthly idea maps with repetitive tasks so that as I go through the month, I keep track of the work that needs to happen that month. In a previous post, I showed an example of a daily mind map that I create at that level. Here is a MindManager map for the month of August.

I promised a map using MindManager this post. I was going to use one of my regular MindManager maps, but recently, I made a map that I hope to use as the dashboard for a large writing project I’ve been working on.

For the last 12 years (sporadically), I’ve been collecting, digitizing and organizing over 16,000 files representing my father’s 70+ year career as a commercial and fine artist in Western New York.

This map is one way I may organize data. I hope you’ll be able to see the images by zooming into he map .

Did the Same Person Draw These Maps?

Here are 2 maps done in a very different way. Do you think the same person drew them?

Daily Map

7 Habits

Answer: Yes. I did these, but under different circumstances and for different purposes. The yellow one is an example of a kind of map I do every day when I get to the office. It’s a “quickie” done to capture things in my iPod Touch from Omnifocus. I use this program as my GTD (Getting Things Done) system, but because it’s a database and the iPod version has to open and close each time you access it, it takes too long to open it frequently. So I make the map to lay out what I’ll do. Then at some point in my work session (end of morning) I’ll go back into the iPod and update that system.

The second map was done while attending Jamie Nast’s IdeaMapping seminar last April in Florida. I’d done the “exercise” of mapping Steven Covey’s 7 Habits, and decided to try and find a different way to express the information. So this is more of an artistic map.

Next post, I’ll show how I use Mindjet’s Mindmanager, which I also use every day both personally and professionally.
