Time Management Training Workshop – Mind Mapping South Africa
Time Management Training Workshop South Africa
My time management training workshop will help you break your goals into realistic action steps by teaching you “MIND MAPPING” techniques.
- First; begin in the center of your page, with the topic or focus of your map. Draw a circle and write the main topic in the this circle.
- Branch out from the center with all of the ideas that come to mind. This allows your mind to wander in many different directions and does not restrict you to linear thinking.
- You can also branch off of an existing branch with connected ideas. This helps to get the creative juices flowing and does not restrict your thinking.
Think of how the brain works: the brain does not think of things in order or from top left, but rather it visualizes in the centre of our mental field and then ideas bounce off each other in no particular order. This non-linear way of capturing your ideas reflects the way ideas are developed in the brain, and gives you a lot of flexibility, yet allows you to structure your thoughts at the same time.
“Many people fail to take action because they’re afraid to fail. Successful people, on the other hand, realize that failure is an important part of the learning process.”
After completing this time management training workshop you will be armed with the tools and techniques that you will have learnt on this time management training workshop. This will show you that as you are working to map your goal, you may run out of room or ideas. If you’re running out of room, remember that you can always take a specific branch of your map and create a map or whole page of its own. That may allow you the space to flesh it out even further. And if you start to hit a wall of ideas and can’t think of all the steps, sometimes it’s helpful to set it aside for a bit and let your subconscious mind work on it.
This time management training workshop will show you that coming back to it with a fresh mind, which has had time to ponder all the options, may yield some new ideas. Additionally, you can ask others to look at your map and suggest anything they see that you don’t. And remember, sometimes it’s unrealistic to expect that we’ll see the complete path before we start to walk it—we may need to start to take action on our goal and on the steps we’ve identified before the path becomes clearer and lights up for us. This time management training program will show you that flexibility is crucial to any planning and implementation process, always be open to look for better ways or to change your plans if necessary.
