A growing number of people are now utilizing mind mapping software as a "personal dashboard" to help them organize their personal and professional lives. A case in point is Ken Robert, a personal productivity coach. He has created a dashboard map that he calls "Grand Central Imagination," and it provides a valuable summary of such key information as:
- His calendar
- Key files
- His journal writing
- Stuff he needs to remember
"It serves as my main headquarters for just about everything that finds its way inside my head," he explains in his blog posts. Each of these major topics can contain a myriad of information, or can link to sub-maps that are focused on each major area. That's the power and flexibility of software-produced mind maps - you can organize them to suit your specific purposes.
