A Gift - Hang It On Your Wall And Get Things Done!

17 replies
Hey Warriors,

Several days ago I was sitting in front of my favorite graphics program when I had a flash of inspiration for an idea - a one-page guide with tips and insights on how to get things done - something we all need help doing better, including me!

I'm finally finished with it (see screenshot below), and I'd like to give to you - no strings attached.


This forum has always been a great source of answers and inspiration to me - this is just my way of saying thanks.

I call the concept a ClarityMap, and you can download it here.

Print it, laminate it, and hang it on your wall. I'm biased, but I think it's a great tool for inspiring you to take action everyday!

Oh, and I'm happy to say you're free to give it away to anyone, anyway you want (as long as you give it away free, and you don't alter it in any way).

If you all like this enough, I've got ideas for ClarityMaps related to all sorts of marketing stuff.

I'd love to hear your feedback.

Thanks again, and enjoy.

      This looks cool. I know the obsessive compulsion to check emails and twitter updates over and over is a problem for quite a few people. Hopefully this will help me be more productive.

      Love the graphics by the way, is that your work or is it outsourced?

      Thanks for sharing this with us.
      How do I make it my desktop wallpaper?
      I can use the image in your OP but it only forms a
      small image on the desktop (i.e. it does not cover the whole screen).
      Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much for all the great feedback!

    I know we all hear and read things about how to take action, but I believe there's nothing like a visual aid - since our minds think in pictures.

    I've created several more of this kinds of guides/maps (especially related to copywriting concepts) but I'm still trying to figure out what to do with them.

    I'll keep you posted.

    BTW, letsgetitstarted, I personally created this with one of the best graphics programs on the market - Xara (Graphics Software by Xara).

    Thanks again!

    Hey Kumar,

    You're welcome!

    As for how to make it a desktop wallpaper, within Adobe Reader, right-click the image and choose the Select Tool from the menu.

    From the top-left of the image, click-drag to the bottom right of the image.

    When the image is completely selected, right-click on the image again and choose Copy.

    Open a program like Photoshop (or some other graphics editor), start a new document, then do a Paste onto that new document.

    Export the results a PNG, JPEG, or whatever works.

    Make that exported image your wallpaper.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey Dr. Mani,


    I have another one in the works right now - based on a thread I saw earlier this morning on this forum about reaching goals.

    I really like creating these.

    Anyone have a favorite marketing topic you'd like to see as a map?

    Video Marketing?
    Article Marketing?
    Landing Pages?

    Let me know.
