Using MindManager to track goals and projects
I picked the following links up from a MindJet newsletter. I thought my readers might find them useful:
Many of us start each year with pretty lofty goals. They fill notebooks, or a whiteboard, or pages in a day planner. And they usually make us exhausted just looking at them. But then what? You accidentally spill coffee on the notebook, erase the whiteboard and that front page of your day planner gets crumpled in your briefcase.
By February those goals are all but forgotten. This year, try using MindManager to set goals. Add images that help to prioritize and categorize, then use the task planning features to track them to completion. We think it will infuse new life into your goal planning.
So much so, that you may find yourself obsessed with conquering that next achievement.
