However, I knew that I had a few friends that loved mindmapping, so I asked them to share their favorite tools.
Whether you are experienced at mindmapping or you are like me and are curious about how you might use mindmapping to help you, check out the resources I have below!
Class To Help You Understand Mindmapping
My friend Meggin McIntosh (aka Ph.D. of Productivity) recently taught a webinar on mindmapping and I was thrilled to learn she recorded it and is offering it for a tiny investment of $12.95 for the 90 minute course.
If you have heard of Mindmapping but are not sure it is for you, or you would like to use the tools to their fullest, you might consider Meggin's course. If you are interested, you can learn more here: http://www.meggin.com/classes/previous-classes/mindmapping/. I have had Meggin on a number of my programs and she always gives out amazing content, so I know this course is a must have if you are interested in making the most of your mindmapping.
A few of my friends shared their favorite mindmapping tools so that you can find one that works for you:
- Jane Plass recommends FreeMind. She says that it is easy to use and open source. http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page or http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/19325/freemind.
- Michelle Panzlaff recommends Mind Meister. You can find it here: http://www.mindmeister.com.
"Your brain wants to help you, but you have to ask and you have to provide the opportunity for it to help. Mindmapping is one of the ways to get your brain to help you." ~Meggin McIntosh
I'm grateful for the friend that made the request, because I now have a renewed interest in looking into mindmapping more myself! I'm working on a few group programs for 2013 and I think mindmapping could be a great way for me to get everything out of my head and onto paper. Woot!
Do you mindmap? What tools do you use? What tips do you have to share? I'd love for you to help me and other readers out by sharing your thoughts in the comments.
To your "getting it out of your brain so you can take action" success!
