As we snow ball into December our diaries are starting to burst at their binders. But hold on to your hats, iMindMap is a pretty nifty, time-saving idea generating and easy-to-use tool that will help you breeze through this hectic time of year…
Chances are your social calendar is filling up with festive events leading right up until the New Year. The only problem is, this time of year is when you really need to be focusing at work to review the past 12 months and plan for the next – how else are you going to get a head start on 2014?
If you want to make the most of what December has to offer, you need a time management miracle…
Using iMindMap for Mind Mapping can help you to cut out that background noise and is proven to improve productivity by 20% – that means you can gain an extra working day every week!
Create a map for your entire schedule from work deadlines, to office parties, copious amounts of shopping, mountains of food to prepare and all that fa-la-la-la-ling to be done.
Remember, because iMindMap is on one clearly structured page, you can keep an eye on the big picture, review your information much more quickly and remember it better too.
Useful hint: Why type when time is of the essence? You can simply use Audio Notes to capture chunks of information in an instant.
Colour is one of the most powerful tools for enhancing memory and creativity, so ensure that you use plenty of it. The more visually appealing you make your map, the more effective it is. Try adding lots of images to your map, to help your brain make rapid links and associations.
Maximise your time-saving potential by reviewing your iMindMap. Refine and expand certain sections of your iMindMap, fill in any areas that you may have missed and reinforce particularly important associations. You can even start to tick off what you have already done.
Useful hint: For ideas that you want to turn into actionable tasks, fire them over to DropTask and watch them go from start to completion in a visual and fluid work-space.
With iMindMap you have the ability to streamline your chaotic to-do list this December and make the most of this fantastic time of year. Increase your productivity by 20%, regain control of your time and sail into the New Year with ease.
