How to Use Mind Maps to Grow Your Ideas & Your Business

A great productivity strategy for any type of planning, project or problem solving is by using a mind mapping tool. It allows you to process your ideas, thoughts and information by starting with a basic concept or topic, and then mapping your thoughts and ideas in a free flowing pattern that mimics how the brain works.

Mind maps can be a valuable resource when it comes to planning, brain storming, visualizing, organizing and prioritizing. Because visual information is processed faster in the brain, it’s often easier to remember than text alone.

Other benefits of use include effective learning and creative problem solving that results from having a birds eye view of how pieces of information relate to one another.

This process can be utilized for time management, productivity, or to break down large tasks or projects into more manageable segments. They’re also useful when planning presentations, group meetings, launches, products, programs, or marketing plans.

Here’s an example of the mind map we created when brain storming our Business Launch Plan Guide.

The finished product is easy to review in a concise location, and makes it easier to understand a complex concept at a glance.
