During the current global recession, we’re all facing unprecedented challenges. In times like these, you obviously can’t continue to do things the way you always have. (Well, actually you can, but you may not last long…) You need to get creative in order to uncover the latent opportunities that exist in nearly every situation and challenge.
Mind mapping software is an awesome planning, brainstorming and decision-making tool that can help you to survive and thrive during these tough times. That’s why I’d like to announce a contest, which I’m conducting in cooperation with Mindjet, the developer of MindManager:
We’d like you to share your stories about how, specifically, you’re using mind maps to help you do more with less during these tumultuous times. I’m looking for 2 scenarios:
- Those of you who are still working, are managing additional challenges in your job as a result of the recession, and are using mind maps to help you work through them.
- Those of you who have been laid off from your jobs as a result of the recession and are using mind maps to either aid you in your job search, start a new business or figure out your next steps in your career.
Anyone who submits a story (100 words or so) will be entered in a drawing to win one of 6 free copies of the terrific new MindManager 8 for Windows. Please post your story in the comments section of this post, and be sure to include your e-mail address, so I can enter your name into the drawing (otherwise, I won’t know how to contact you!).
The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 23, 2009. Your comment must be posted by this date in order for your name to be included in the drawing for the licensed copies of MindManager 8.
