In order to flourish we must understand what flourishing actually means to each of us. Each of us will have a plan that is unique. While there will be some overlap these plans will always differ in the details.
Mind-mapping is a technique that I think will be helpful in connecting all of the things you wish to include in your flourishing life.
Here’s a link to open my current mind map as a PDF file: my-flourishing-life
It is a work in progress. This seems reasonable given that things in life are always changing.
Here’s a mind-map on … how to mind map!
I am using a software package – MindNode – to maintain my mind map. I keep it in the Dropbox account that Amy and I share, so that both she and I can edit it or update it any time we want. Doing this is a good way to ensure that both Amy and I have the big picture as regards what I am trying to achieve with my life.
I’m looking forward to discussing this with all of you at our next meeting. Amy and I will bring materials so that you can begin work (if you wish to do so) on your personal plan – whether you choose to do it as a mind map or in some other form – is entirely up to you.
