Mindmap To Improve Your Grades

As a reader or subscriber to this blog, you know I am a huge fan of MindMapping.

I used it as a student to collect and gather all my study notes before important tests and exams.

I now use it in business for all my strategic planning and as a visual tool for personal goal setting and journaling.

I teamed up with a fabulous artist – Paul Telling – to create a How To MindMap To get Better Grades Program. You can more about it by clicking on the hyperlink.

If you feel a little intimidated about drawing by hand, you can use a Digital Mindmapping Software that does it all for you – it works on Macs and PCs.

Believe it or not, Digital MindMapping Software can help you write essays and term papers faster than ever before by helping you capture more data, notes and information in one place.
