Step 5 Mind Mapping

Estimated time for completion: 1 hour

Inspiration from Joan Lunden:
“Remove failure as an option.”

Today you’re going to put together the core of your product. Just like creating your goals, we’re going to chunk it down and make it a completely manageable activity. Your first product is going to be a report based on your knowledge and passion. Today we’re going to put the outline in place.

This isn’t going to be a “War And Peace” sized publication. Your report can be 20-30 pages of quality information with no fluff or filler.

To begin, you’re going to do a mini mind map. (I’ve included a free mindmap book at the end of this page!)
So let’s start with a general outline of the contents of your report. For this example, we’ll pretend you’re writing a report on goal setting.

Subject: Goal Setting
Title: Making Your Dreams Come True, One Goal At A Time
Points to cover:
1. What is a goal
2. The importance of setting goals
3. Results of setting goals
4. How to set goals
5. S.M.A.R.T goals defined
6. Long-term goals
7. Short-term goals
8. Daily goals
9. Reaching your financial expectations
10. Your next step

Now that did not seem so hard so it’s time for you to try it!

All I am asking you to do is to jot out the main points you’d like to cover in your report. Remember your report can be about something you are knowledgeable about, for example cleaning cars, fishing, putting up shelves – remember some one out there on the internet wants to know what you know!
