I use mind maps for everything! From organizing my day, to planning an article. The main reason for the post is to share with you, two tools I use heavily. With the aim to encourage you to try them.

  • FreeMind (its free and works on most platforms)
  • Mindmeister (It has a free option, but I use a ┬ápaid for service. It has great online collaboration facilities.)

I’ve even worked remotely on business projects with MindMeister to great effect. Brainstorming ideas with a number of people in remote locations.

If you are completely new to the idea, take a look at the Wikipedia entry on the subject to get a better explanation.

This is a good page to (Benefits of Mind Mapping)

Happy MindMapping everyone!
