Business Breakthrough: Mind Mapping
by Mike J. Agugliaro
Hey, Mike Agugliaro, business ninja, founder of the 23 Million Dollar Business Blueprint and Service Business Warrior Mastermind bringing you something. Come on in here a minute. Come on. Shh-shh. Come here. I got a secret for you this one. Have you ever used a software or a piece of tool? Today they’re even on the iPhones and smartphones and tablets and everything else in between. Back when I really started using it, it was pen and paper.
It’s called mind mapping. Now, you’re like, “What? What is this mind mapping stuff?” Now, mind mapping is really cool. Let me find a … Hang on. Let me find a marker. All right we got two. I had to make sure they’re dry erase. One time I took a permanent marker. What are you looking at me like that for? Like you never took a permanent marker to a white board and totally destroyed it? Just me, right? Okay, cool. Mind mapping is when you can … You start thinking of something like maybe it’s something I have to get done and there’s a lot of pieces and branches.
You try to think of it in your mind and do it but there’s always something that drops off or you try making a list and that gets a little crazy there. There’s this stuff like mindmap.com and stuff where you can pick a point. You draw something. You say, “Okay, what I want to do. I want to make my service delivery better.” I say, “Service delivery” and I start mapping out on that. What do I need to do to make my service delivery better? What I do is part of service delivery is what? There’s mind set. Right? Now all of a sudden I have a mindset bracket and I start breaking off onto mindset. There’s a couple kinds of mindset. Right? There’s your subconscious and then your conscious. Right?
You have you subconscious mind and your conscious mind. Then I can start breaking this down into activities. Right? This is the hello. Right? Like I’m starting to greet a customer. What you do is you’re able to take something you’re building and you’re actually able to put your head subject there and start blocking and minding out. If you do this right, first off, if will unload your brain. Because I don’t know about you but are you ever at the point you just have so many thoughts going on? Yeah.
Grab a paper or grab the tablet or something and start doing this mind map and start organizing your thoughts so then you can step back. Like I could step back here and start looking at this and it’s going to tell me a story. It’s going to say okay now what I can do is put this into a story of: What’s the first action step to start moving this? What’s the second action step? Lot of times when you do a mind mapping and share it with someone else, they look at it and they can’t figure it out but they start saying, “Well, hang on a minute. What about this or what about that?” Very powerful strategy not only for yourself to do for just general life stuff, business stuff but very good for your team.
Even if you have a let’s mind map how our vendors work together. Let’s mind map a new process on either complaints or how to do marketing. Let’s mind map our direct mail. Today I give you the challenge to not only learn the concept of mind mapping but go out there and test it a little bit. Because you could do it like this on a piece of paper and really start to laser focus in on what you want to accomplish and get all that stuff out of your brain and down so you can make some, yeah, some magic happen.
All right, I’m Mike Agugliaro. I’m wishing you a better than great day today and everyday. Wishing you go out and really mind map and listen to me on this one. I want to help you get to what? Massive wealth, tons of freedom, market domination. That’s what I want to do. All right, see you on the next video.
