A Note from Michael

I’ve been using mind mapping for over 25 years, and it has absolutely transformed my productivity. From mapping out my book, The Drummer and the Great Mountain, to planning our podcasts, to scheduling my day, it is an essential part of my workflow.

I’ve watched it transform the lives of coaching clients and workshop participants.

I would say it’s the #1 tool for managing ADHD time management and planning challenges.

We’ve put together a comprehensive workshop that covers all of the essential aspects of mind mapping. You will also get the mind mapping software I use every day.

I hope you can join us!



You’ll learn the essentials of mind mapping, starting on paper. Practice getting your ideas out of your head and onto a mind map in the most efficient way possible.

Free Mind Mapping Software

You’ll have free access to a simple, yet powerful mind mapping software, that can be easily used in tandem with emails, calendars, and other note taking software.



  • Use mind mapping for your daily planning routine, splitting your life into simple categories, such as health, work, relationships, etc.

  • Quickly break down overwhelming tasks that you tend to procrastinate

What You'll Learn

Mind Mapping On Paper

Learn the essentials of getting your ideas out of your head and onto paper.

How to Use Mind Mapping Software

Increase your productivity by learning how to use mind mapping software, and integrating it into your daily workflow.

How to Plan Your Day

If you struggle with planning your day, mind mapping is a life saver. Learn how to quickly map out your day (or week), and create a list of doable action items.

Mapping Out Projects

Mind mapping really shines when mapping out projects. By visually seeing the entire project in front of you, it makes it much easier to prioritize and follow-through.

Break Down Overwhelming Tasks

We tend to procrastinate and distract ourselves from overwhelming tasks. Mind mapping can make you much more efficient at breaking down larger tasks, thereby increasing productivity. 

Business Planning Techniques

If you struggle with business planning, or work-related projects, mind mapping is an essential tool for gaining clarity and mapping out your next steps.

What People Are Saying

"Michael's unique coaching provided vital guidance at a time when my other resources were failing. With his help I was able to clarify my needs and thoughts in order to create effective goals and take the daily steps to achieve them. He provides compassion, knowledge, and support, but more importantly helps people to realize what it is that they need, and to receive it all with open arms."

Alive! Workshop Participant
"Since as far back as I can remember, I've been bombarded with many ideas, created many plans, but haven't always been able to follow them through to completion. The skills I learned in this workshop, without a doubt, were a huge part of solving my life's puzzle. I wish I had found this workshop (and the podcast) earlier in life, but I'm extremely grateful I found it when I did!"
Angiel Stahley

"After using the tools I learned in the workshop, as well as the podcast and the book, I feel more at peace than I have in a long time. The information on life visioning, time management, wellness planning and creating a support system have already made a huge difference in my life in just four short weeks!"

Yes. Recording will be made available after the session in both video and mp3 format. 

We use the Zoom Video Conferencing software for the live session. You can either use the Zoom app on your desktop, phone, or tablet — or dial in on a regular phone line. We highly recommend using your desktop / laptop to utilize the free mind mapping software.

Michael’s book, “The Drummer and the Great Mountain – a Guidebook to Transforming Adult ADD/ADHD” is definitely recommended as a reference, but not a requirement.

You will will need a method of taking notes, and access to a laptop or desktop computer to use our mind mapping software.

The session will be recorded. You’ll be able to access the recording one day after the live session. The recording will be made available indefinitely.
