Anywhere, any time…Mindmaps can help!

Dear Mindmapping Graduate

Any where, any time…Mindmaps can help!  This is one example of a quick Mindmap that helped me.

On the way to the Blue Mountains on Easter Sunday to go bushwalking, I reached for my iPhone and created the following Mindmap (it’s okay my husband was driving!).  With my first solo art exhibition about to open, there were a of number things I needed “to do” and rather than trying to keep remembering these in my head (with the very real potential of forgetting them), I took some time between “Harbord” and Homebush to capture all the things I needed to do.  Here’s what I came up with…

It was easy to then synchronise between my iPhone and my iPad later to view.  I love the way the branches reflect the roads!  Will definitely remember this moment in Mindmapping!  And I am happy to say, all items done, and exhibition opened, today Tuesday, 9 April.

For more details of my exhibition, in case you can make it along, either visit my art website at or “Like” on Facebook at  (Also newly on Facebook, CreativeConceptsandCoaching.)

A small Mindmap captured on an iPhone provided peace of mind so I could just enjoy our bushwalk.  So remember…anywhere, any time Mindmaps can help!

Happy Mindmapping,






Easter Mindmap gift…A book in a page

Dear Mindmapping Graduate

In the spirit of Easter I would like to share with you a Mindmap I drew some time ago, which is a summary of Deepak Chopra’s book, “Seven Spiritual Laws of Success”.  This is one book condensed to a page.  So if you have a lot of information you need to summarise and remember, it’s possible to Mindmap it!

I also thought I would share with you an Artist’s mindmap!   Hand drawn by myself, this sketch of “The Streets of Orvieto” gave me a bit of a map of where I was headed with my paintbrushes.  Sometimes we just need a plan to get started, so use a mindmap.
