the bones of the idea
resources that I can use - websites, articles, videos
The beauty of mind mapping with MindManager is that there is so much flexibility. My mindmap allows my brain to work withoout imposing a rigid structure and the mind map can be instantly rearranged as my thoughts change. I can hold seemingly disparate pieces of information all in the one place. It is a one-stop shop.
I use mind maps to capture ideas for blogs and articles. No more scraps of post-its, I just open up the Ideas mind map and add the latest thought or drag a link to a useful website.

You may have also noticed that I use them to provide a big picture perspective when I am trying to communicate. The overview of this site is a mindmap. And if you subscribe to the Internet Marketing Program, you can be assured that there will be lots of mind map summaries.
