If you’re a visual thinker, someone who needs to see the whole picture, you probably would benefit from doing a mind map before you start a new project. A mind map will help you see where you’re going and give you a birds eye view of the steps you will want to take. Picturing a project is so important to a visual thinkers success.

How you do your mind mapping is a personal choice. A big sheet of paper and some colored markers is a fine way to get the job done. A slick digital way is to use an online mind mapping tool. I like Mind Meister. It’s simple to use, you can create a few maps for free and you’re able to access your online map on your mobile device. Cool. Check it out and let me know what you think.
