Tony Buzan developed Mind Mapping as a technique to make the most of your mind. As one of the world’s foremost authorities on the subjects of creativity, speed reading, and whole brain utilization, he has written numerous books, including the “Mind Map Book“, “Speed Reading“, and “Use Both Sides of Your Brain“.
Mind Mapping helps in the taking and making of notes and assists in recording your thoughts in a non-linear, associative, and radiant fashion. Activities like preparing for presentations; taking notes about books you read; doing a situation analysis; studying any subject; and working with groups to come up with creative and innovative ideas will become faster, easier, and more fun when using Mind Mapping.

This Mind Map was also created a long time ago – years before I even knew about NLP… Looking at it now, it seems to have been just a question of time before introducing NLP into my life as well…

This example shows how a couple of differently colored pens can capture a two hour long meeting on one page, providing for some fun during those meetings and easy recall later on.
Situation Analysis of NCR Pen-based Business in 1991
This Mind Map was the result of an afternoon long thinking session about how to target and address the markets in Switzerland with one of the first pen-based computers, the NCR NotePad. Sorry for the poor quality. I didn’t have the original anymore and one of my former associates in Switzerland, Heinz Sidler who drew this original, kindly faxed it to me. Thanks Heinz!
