Get Unstuck with Mind-Mapping
Your Best Technique for Writing, Planning and Study
Have you ever experienced ‘Writer’s Block’ or ‘Brain-Freeze?’?
Let me introduce you to an ADD Adult’s best solution for writing, planning and thinking.
In this telephone class, we’ll discuss how “Mind-Mapping,” a simple technique using paper and pencil, can help overcome feelings of paralysis, overwhelm, writer’s block and brain-freeze when you’re faced with projects involving planning, writing or study.
Every one of my ADD clients who have tried this technique — including students, novelists, architects, web designers and entrepreneurs — were enthusiastic about their new ability to get “unstuck” in their thinking. Originally, I considered mind-mapping as a tool just for writing and organizing information. Students who needed to write reports found mind maps to be a great technique for getting started. But I now realize the value of mind-mapping for just about any kind of planning.
Take this class, and be prepared to move forward in ways you never have before!
What is a Mind Map?
A mind map is a simple paper and pencil way of capturing
your thoughts and getting them down on paper, without having to agonize over organization and prioritizing.
It’s a perfect method for ADDers because it encourages your mind to roam freely on a subject, without boxing yourself into a structure that you find tedious or constricting. You can use it for anything, from plotting out the steps of a project to creating a business strategy.
- Here are some different ways my coaching clients have had successful break-throughs using mind-map techniques:
- Designing a client’s website
- Creating a new business plan
- Planning a room addition
- Developing an action plan for job-hunting
- Plotting a discussion with child’s teacher
- Writing a Personal Development Plan for the boss
- Developing a marketing plan
- Outlining a book proposal

How to change your words and banish ADHD shame What you say defines you. Not just to others, but to yourself.
