Mind Mapping

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

I use mind maps often to help clarify my thinking by bringing clarity to complicated and unclear situations. I specifically like mapping out complex problems without explicitly trying to map out their solution. Often the solution or future state becomes apparent simply by clearly mapping out (the context of) the problem.

I started in 1996 with MindJet’s MindMan software after reading about NLP, but moved to CmapTools and than quickly to FreeMind. Wanted to move online, but the options are not good enough yet, so I moved all my maps into my dropbox so I can access them everywhere.
