A Medical Student using iMindMap

In a special guest blog post, medical student Amelia from Queen Mary, University of London reveals how she uses iMindMap to help her through her medical degree.

I have always been a conscientious, hard working student yet I dread exams. All the knowledge laboriously collected over the year seems to remain locked away and although it’s there I feel I can never quite consolidate it totally and confidently.

I was ‘diagnosed’ with dyslexia at the age of 10, which has added to my struggle.  I am a medical student in my 4th year, studying in London. Last year I intercalated and studied for a BSC in Experimental Pathology. This is conventionally a three-year degree, which I took in a year – as you can imagine, a great deal of work.  There was a lot to learn and I was keen, yet I was near despair as I felt it was impossible to consolidate and retain the year’s work.

Daydreaming At Work

18th November 2011, by Chris Griffiths

Focused daydreaming is one of the most effective tools for heightening creativity and cultivating powerful solutions to all sorts of business issues. While most bosses may frown upon daydreaming as a complete ‘waste of time’, I’ve recently been flying the flag for its strategic use in the workplace.

Listen to my interview with Henry Bonsu of Colourful Radio for more clarity on the creativity-enhancing benefits of this technique:

Chris Griffiths Interview with Colourful Radio

Also, please check out my guest article on where I go into detail on the value of daydreaming and how to use it purposefully:

‘Focused Daydreaming – A Practical Tool for Creativity’ from Chris Griffiths

Want to know more about Focused Daydreaming?

Focused daydreaming (or ‘Thought Experiments’) is one of several creativity topics and tools covered in my latest book GRASP The Solution: How to find the best answers to everyday challenges. In this book, I outline how rising entrepreneurs or those interested in self-development can use daydreaming strategically to access the deeper parts of the mind and develop champion ideas and solutions.

Anyone Can Be Creative – Chris Griffith’s Interview with

16th November 2011, by Chris Griffiths

Biggerplate interviewNot long ago I had the great privilege to be interviewed by Liam Hughes of We had an enjoyable chat about my new book GRASP The Solution, the value of thinking creatively in tough times and the role that Mind Mapping can play.

Liam challenged me to share my perspectives on all sorts of sticky matters concerning creativity and innovation. Crucially, I debunk the myth that some people aren’t the ‘creative type’ or don’t have a creative brain. With the aid of a defined system and process, absolutely anyone can be creative and put new ideas into practice.

Other topics discussed include the GRASP concept and how the different modes of thinking affect creativity, the Solution Finder process for achieving ‘practical creativity’ and the usefulness of Mind Maps for capturing and cultivating ideas.

It’s well worth checking out. Read the complete interview on
