When I first reached out to Joseph Rodrigues, I wanted to ask him about how he mind maps books.
After all, I think you’ll be very curious too after you see the dozens of books he’s mind mapped on his YouTube channel.
All of these map examples are dedicated to showing you the nature of your mind and how to deeply integrate your learning.
Joseph is an entrepreneur, YouTube content creator, IT industry veteran, host of the podcast Insights & Perspectives, and management consultant. In addition, he develops courses in personal development and teaches entrepreneurship techniques to professionals of any age at Online Training for Entrepreneurs.
Joseph’s journey, covered on his bio, is fueled by curiosity, a constant need to know, and in our conversation we explore the concept of knowledge and its unbreakable bond to questioning.
Not only questioning “Why?” but, more broadly, “What –“ “How –“ and “What if?”
All of this questioning leads, not necessarily to answers, but a skillful way of thinking called “discernment.” For example:
Mind Mapping Helps Us Ask Better Questions
Using mind mapping and this powerful method of asking questions, Joseph explains on today’s episode how this process adds fuel to the accelerated learning techniques our community uses.
We not only explore the concept of mind mapping and questioning for personalized, accelerated learning, but how to integrate these techniques into our lives to create and nurture flow. This makes for easier choices in life as we combat chaos. Not only during the workday, but every day.
So if you’re looking to get rid of that feeling that you need “just a few” more hours to focus on work…
If you’re frustrated and have a feeling that life is just out of your control…
If the restrictive box of being told how you “should” be learning just isn’t working for you…
This podcast is for you!
Stay questioning, stay curious and press play to tune in as we share ideas about:
- Comparing two popular methods for achieving mind map mastery and the pros and cons of each
- The many reasons knowledge is valuable (not just personally, but sharing what you learn with others!)
- The true definition of accelerated learning (Hint: It’s more than just speedreading!)
- Defining quadrant/format-based learning styles for effectiveness
- Why context is so important (and without it why you’re actually working against your learning goals)
- How Memory Palaces and mind maps improve retention (from a non-memory worker’s perspective)
- The truth and practical application of the 80/20 rule
- What M.E.A.T. really is (and why its opposition is more than something just vegans can get behind!)
- The two-fold secret to combatting information overwhelm
- Why staying “in flow” is so beneficial to life in multiple areas and the reason it’s a “universal language”
- What stagnation really means (it’s more than just “standing still”)
