Mind Mapping

leave a comment »

A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision making, and writing.

I'm a very serial and sequential processor when it come to tasks and thinking. I have always wanted to incorporate the use of mind mapping in my planning models. For more on Mind Mapping, check out the following video by Tony Buzan, the father of modern mind mapping:

You can easily create a mind map by hand, using a blank piece of paper. For more fun and pizazz, throw in some color. I admit that I'm hesitant on using color and I generally stick to black/blue in all of my notes.  However, I will commit to trying this mind mapping technique out for future projects.

If you're more digitally inclined, you can use the software called FreeMind.

Sometimes, a good "stir" is all we need to jog the mind and boost creativity!  Try creating a mind map NOW of anything that's on your mind and is a bit unclear.
