If you ever want to do something with your spare time, once you get off imgur of course.... Meditation Breathing Techniques Next you want to deepen your rumination even further, and you can use many meditation breathing techniques to fast track the process. With total focus, take three slow, deep, breaths; simple meditation breathing techniques use a count of eight for your inhalation, then hold the breath for the count of eight and exhale for the same. This keeps the breathing even and also gives your body an oxygen boost which relaxes you even further. If a thought does pop into your mind throughout the session, as before, remind yourself everything is fine and all will resolve just as it should.

John Caples - Tested Advertising Methods John Caples - Tested Advertising Methods [MMAP PDF] This is a MindMap in MindManager format ( of the great book Tested Advertising Methods by John Caples. The map structure follow the book's chapters and sections and I condensed it as much as I possible. A lot of times I just arranged the original paragraphs into sections as they were well written enough to make any attempt to condense them unproductive. This means taking a screenshot from inside Acrobat (the original book was not OCRed), which contributed to the large size of this file (apologies for that). The original book is included as an attachment inside the mind map. Ok, why did I take the trouble to create a mind map for the book? About the book: a lot of the marketing gurus out there, and specially Gary Halbert are very fond of this book. The book is very well written: it has specific chapters about headlines, about increasing pulling power, about testing, etc, etc, etc.
