"A Mind Map is a powerful graphic technique which provides a universal key to unlock the potential of the brain."  http://www.tonybuzan.com/about/mind-mapping/

A couple of years ago I started using mindmapping as a brainstorming technique. I have found this to be an extremely useful tool to increase my creativity and memory. Mind maps are made by connecting thought bubbles and can be used for brainstorming or as a memory device. I primarily use mindmaps for brainstorming.

I often find that I like using paper and colored pencils to make my mind maps. There's just something about feeling the pencil and the act of writing that makes the process better. Recently I have been experimenting with some mindmapping software.

MindMeister is an online mindmapping software that is extremely simple to setup and use. You can make a free mind map without even registering (though you will have to register your name and email if you want to be able to save your mind maps).


Lesson Learned: MindMeister is a simple and easy to use mind mapping tool.
