"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Dilip Mukerjea, writing in his book, 'Building BrainPower: Turning Grey Matter into Gold', offers the following Action Points for Your Mind-Mapping:

1) Make regular Mind Map notes, even if they are crafted solely in the mind.

2) Spot key words in lectures, notes, and books. Endeavour constantly to convert them into images.

3) Create a colour code for your notes and in your activities.

4) Develop 3D symbols and codes.

5) Use Mini Mind Maps on a regular basis.

6) Build your vocabulary and strive to understand meanings at diverse levels.

7) Mind Map all aspects of yourself. Create a Life Plan Mind Map and monitor your progress.

8) Review a book with a Mind Map. Then review several books and distill the contents onto One Mind Map.

9) Make a group Mind Map for a holiday, party, project, or subject.

10) test your memory with elaborate Mind Maps to see if your ability to retain vast amounts of information is being developed on a continuing basis.
