The iMindMap 6.1 Guide to Fighting the Fear

Ghosts? Vampires? Zombies? Pah! It is our Halloween tradition to consider some of the things that really scare us at ThinkBuzan; things that are far less gothic and even more difficult to defeat…

What if we’re boring? What if no one remembers us? What if we are left alone? (sob)

It isn’t a fear of a ghoul behind the door, or the call coming from inside the house that gets us out of bed in the morning. It’s a fear of not making an impact that really drives us; that motivates us to keep being creative and shy away from the trap of monotony.

Stop time-wasting meetings in their tracks

I once spent 90 minutes listening to someone describe, in excruciating detail, a concept that they’d already shown me 2 weeks earlier. Why did I do this? Because I didn’t want to be rude. Because we’d set aside 2 hours for the meeting anyway, so we might as well fill the time. Because we hadn’t confirmed the discussion points beforehand. Sound familiar?

Fortunately, there is an answer! You can use iMindMap to save you time before, during and after meetings; ensure that you don’t fall asleep from boredom; and guarantee you get something worthwhile out of it. Here’s how…

Walking into the office on a Monday, you’re already performing mental gymnastics trying to figure out how you’ll get through your task list for the week, only to be confronted by twenty equally urgent and demanding emails, messages and the phone ringing off the hook. Sound familiar?

The worst thing to do in a speech or presentation…

I gave a speech at a wedding last year. It was terrifying. Having spoken in front of everyone from CEOs to UN Officials, I can tell you that speaking at someone’s wedding tops the scary list.
