Yesterday, I talked about being the writer, director and producer of my life. One of the tools I use is a concept map. Concept maps are graphic organizers, which are visual displays of information such as a chart or a graph. Concept maps start with a central idea from which you expand outward. In this case, the central idea is me. I am the central point of the this map. Around me are all my needs, goals, intentions and affirmations for the day, week, and the months ahead.
Concept maps are great to use for defining an idea, creating an outline for a story, developing a timeline for a business. Concept maps can be made daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. For students, a concept map is a great tool for studying any topic, especially when the student generates his or her own concept map. A concept map displays a great amount of information on a single page. There are endless possible applications for concept maps. Consider using a concept map in defining you and your dream or planning your next project or event.

Concept maps are a very helpful tools. Engineers for all major projects from building bridges to building rockets have used “action plans” timelining what steps have to be done first and what can be done in parallel. The plans are reviewed and “edited” for accuracy and completeness. The longest time “path” through this plan is called the “critical” path and establishes a project’s expected completion date and is often a good indicator of the cost as well. Thank you for providing your daily inspirational messages.
Ah, that is why I have identified with concept maps so well. It is because I saw my father use them in his engineering work at NASA. Thank you so very much for your comment. ♥ Angi
