Owning What You Know Starts With Creating a Mind Map

Owning what you know starts with creating a mind map. It’s not enough to simply sock away information for some future purpose. Authentic achievers must be able to access that information on demand and put it to work for them.

If you’re serious about committing what you study to long-term memory for recall purposes, a mind map can be applied to learning and applying specific knowledge that helps us achieve our own goals.

In today’s episode, Doug Andrew will share the example of one Marshall Thurber, who was one of his mentors. Thurber famously passed the California State Bar Exam in the 1970s with the highest score to that point–without having ever gone to law school or read a single law book. His secret to owning what he knew started with creating a mind map.

Two of the mentors who helped to shape Marshall Thurber’s thinking were Buckminster Fuller and Dr. Edward Deming. These two men helped countless people and companies become better managers of their time, efforts and resources by teaching them how to create predictability.

Predictability is also a topic that is thoroughly covered in Doug Andrew’s latest book “The LASER Fund“. It’s a unique book that will teach you how to enjoy liquid assets safely earning predictable rates of return. If you’re ready to become a better manager of your time, resources, and efforts, you need to know this.
