One useful application of mind mapping software is to visually map your goals. An effective framework for developing your life goals is a roles-and-goals focused methodology described in Stephen Covey’s best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. In this model, you start with a personal mission statement, define your major life roles and then develop goals for each role that are congruent with your personal mission statement.
Part of the reason Covey starts with life roles is to ensure that our lives are in balance. As human beings, we tend to focus on one aspect of our lives – such as our job and career – while neglecting other important roles, such as husband or father, in my case. Looking at your goals within the context of a set of your key life roles helps you to ensure a balanced, effective life. Mind mapping these roles and goals makes it very easy to see if you’re in or out of balance.
In this report I will explain how to create a roles and goals mind map. I will then share some ideas on how to personalize it to meet your needs. This mind map can serve as a living document to help you manage the direction of your life.
