You are what you think about. If you want to achieve any goal, you need to plan and act. The first quarter of 2012 is almost over. How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? Chances are you forgot about them long before January was over.
Last week I was catching up with a copywriting client. We were talking about business and personal goals, and he complained that it’s too easy to forget all about your goals in the midst of everything you need to do every day.
I suggested that he try The Brain. I’ve been using this miraculous mind mapping program (it’s much more than a mere mind map) since 1998. (Disclosure: I have no connection to the company; I just use the software.)
Here’s why I love the program: it helps me to think. Everywhere.
That’s important. A post from The Brain’s blog, which makes the point about goals, » YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK., says:
“Though jotting a key goal down on a piece of paper may mentally provide commitment and relief, your digital brain provides a network for you to elaborate on your idea, remind you when to take action, and turn it into reality! Once you have created a Thought for your goal, the next step is to add other Thoughts that support and elaborate on your goal. This is where perseverance and planning come into play.”
One of my current goals is to publish a novel on the Kindle platform by the end of 2012. This novel will be the first in a series.
I’m on track to achieve that goal, only because of The Brain.
That goal is never out of my mind, because I can THINK about it, and ACT on my thoughts, using The Brain.
My Brain is synced to the site and I can access it anywhere I have a Web browser. It’s completely private, no one else can access it. So if I get an idea while I’m out shopping, I can add it to my Brain on the go.
However, if you do want to work with others, you can collaborate on Brains. You can even create public Web Brains.
Think, and act
What goals would you like to achieve by 2013?
As long as you think about those goals, and act on them, achievement is assured.
