This week I heard from a gentleman who had taken a mind mapping workshop with Tony Buzan. During the workshop he created this amazing mind map of what he wanted his life to be like. The things he wrote and drew in this image are now the reality of his life today:
Here’s Thum’s story: “My Future was drawn 21st April 2006 when I attended a workshop by Tony Buzan. He taught me Mind Map and it changed my future from a desk bound in-house legal counsel in a bank to become a licensed instructor sharing his vision of global mental literacy.
I have been sharing my drawings on facebook and with other people. It changed their mind-sets and I am seeing more acceptance in Singapore where I live and work. Recently, facebook has brought me to other countries i.e. Indonesia, Bulgaria, India, Thailand, Middle East, etc. I am a regular contributor to Mind Map Art and was featured in a Singapore private University Magazine:

The best thing is, you don’t even need to know how to draw!
