Staying Organized with Dr. Avi
Hi Dr. Avi, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Dr. Avi Patel, and I am a dentist and entrepreneur. I currently live in Austin, TX, with my wife and dog. I look to help others believe in themselves and maximize their potential in life. I look at life through a positive lens and believe everything happens for a reason. I use social media as an outlet to spread positivity - foster growth-oriented mindsets, and share tips for dentists pertaining to Invisalign. I created an online boot camp where I teach dentists how to do Invisalign with the hope of helping them provide their patients with comprehensive dental treatment.
When did you discover mind mapping?
I discovered mind mapping when I started my consulting business in March 2022. I was looking for a tool to help me document and organize my thoughts/ideas.
And how have you used it?
I started by using it as a tool to document my brainstorms for my consulting business. I then started to use it for step-by-step protocols and an outline for presentations.
How does mind mapping help you personally?
It helps me document my flow state of ideas and thoughts in a very natural and seamless way.
By letting me stay organized with short and long-term ideas/goals - and allowing me to take a step back and look at the "big picture", which leads me to connect dots and form new connections, that I was not aware of in my brainstorm phase.
Which device do you like to use MindNode on and why?
The iPad. I like the ability to type AND use my fingers to zoom in and out. I feel like Tom Cruise from the Minority Report 🤣
When are you getting your mind mapping done?
Anywhere and everywhere. There is no set time when I use it
Do you have any MindNode features that you particularly enjoy?
Focus Mode – it's great when I'm working on a specific topic.
