One of my goals as the publisher of the leading mind mapping software blog is to serve as an evangelist for this productivity- and creativity-enhancing technology. In essence, to help people understand what they can accomplish with these tools that is beyond their norm.
In essence, I want to put readers of this blog in touch with their inner super hero, tackling challenges they would have been afraid of in the past and bravely venturing forth to Do Great Things.
That’s why I was inspired by Secret Supr-Hero Gear, a store within Chris Brogan’s Human Business Works empire that creates cool t-shirt designs that are designed to inspire the wearer and others around them – and to look pretty freakin’ cool, too!
This whole concept of super heroes having super powers also ties in quite nicely with the summer blockbuster movie season here in the States. With films like the Green Lantern, Thor, X-Men First Class and Captain America on tap this season, it looks like a timely tie-in with this blog and its mission.
What qualifies as a super power?
A super power, for the purposes of this conversation, is what makes each of us unique. It’s what we have to contribute to others. As I pondered the whole concept of super powers, it occurred to me that people who have achieved great results using mind mapping need to have some high-impact, viral way to tell the world about their visual thinking abilities. So I came up with the logo you see above right. It’s also reproduced in several smaller sizes below.
I encourage you to use this super power “badge” freely. All I ask is that you link it back to the URL of this blog post, so that others can understand the thinking behind this initiative, and access the resources I’ve created to support it. Ultimately, my hope is that a greater number of people will be exposed to the benefits and advantages of mind mapping software worldwide.
Will you help me to spread the word?
