Quotes from the book

“A mind map marked up with your to do list allows you to view and review your tasks – what you need to prioritise according to deadlines and what you can realistically achieve against what is not achievable or viable in the timescale.”

“Successful negotiation will allow both sides to reach an agreement that enables them to create a new mind map, a new territory, which is neutral. In order to achieve this goal you need to jot down your facts, statistics, ideas – whatever information you need to structure a convincing argument onto a mind map. Laying out your thoughts in this way helps you to visualise a win win strategy and then go onto implement it, using the mind map as your reference during your negotiation.”

“Using mind maps can really help you become more strategic in your approach to sales and can clarify the way in which you handle preparation, presentation and follow up.”
