PRINCIPAL COMPONENTS OF A LIFESCAPE, captured in a SPLASH MAP
Another wonderful SPLASH MAP from Dilip Mukerjea! It captures all the principal components of a LIFESCAPE.
Dilip explains the significance of a LIFESCAPE as well as a SPLASH MAP, as follows:
"A LIFESCAPE is an interactive, stress-busting, energy-engineering device designed to transport you from where you are to where you wish to be. Tension exists between that which you are and that which you long to become. This gap is then filled with fear.
Thus, LIFESCAPES are provocative strategic thinking scenario charts of possibilities that get you to record and process, on one page, your compendium of thoughts, feelings, and action plans. They are meant for individual as well as group use, and can be processed on paper, or digitally.
The idea behind each LIFESCAPE is to encapsulate, and oxygenate, the thinking behind the thinking needed to move you ahead, from strength to strength, from the bleeding edge to the leading edge, from stress to serendipity to strategy to serenity to success! To superconsciousness, to spirituality!"
"A SPLASH MAP is a highly distilled, one-page encapsulation of integrated, visual-cum-verbal renderings of diverse themes.
It differs significantly from a Mind Maps in that it does not use key words but expanded thoughts, depicted as complete sentences and paragraphs to help one decipher the information being portrayed.
The imagery is also crafted with several layers of significance that serve as 'multipliers', each capable of being exploded into extensive dimensions of interpretation.
Each SPLASH MAP is configured for easy interpretation by a novice 'reader'...this is mostly not the case with Mind Maps.
Both SPLASH MAPS and Mind Maps, as crafted by me, are designed to act as tapestries for portraying panoramic vistas of information on a single page."
Dilip is currently in the process of finishing a new book on his LIFESCAPING methodology. It will probably be released in early 2010.
