One of the most powerful aspects of mind mapping with Mindjet is the ability to see your thoughts. This helps, especially, with visual capturing and relationships between nodes of thought.
If you are leading others or your own life, vision is the cornerstone from which we rally our energy. It is the thought of what is possible captured in a clear and compelling picture or articulation.
Ultimately, what the future can look like has to be sold to others that are part of the future you are thinking. Mindjet can be used in the process of building vision in the following ways:
- Clarifying thinking. You can get your thoughts on one screen. There is not a need for heavy organization. Interrelationships between ideas can be maneuvered as you think by moving mind mapping nodes around as required. You can see the priorities quickly and clearly by simply putting everything into a map.
- Opening up possibilities. You can brainstorm with mindmaps and think of future scenarios and realities. Your vision can expand from what may have started as a simpler thought into something bigger. Your mindmaps can help to build momentum and infuse energy into the process of thinking about the future.
- Getting others involved. Ultimately, you have to sell your vision to others. Having a well thought out mindmap helps you sell the vision. They can get the interconnections and logic from simply seeing the map. Add your own narrative and you have a powerful communications tool for building support.
- Buy-in and collaboration. Your vision becomes a stake in the ground. You can use the mindmap for task management and accountability. The tactical parts of making the future real need to be added to the map in a logical and connected way.
If you can imagine it, then it can be captured in Mindjet. The mindmaps you create for creating and selling your vision become powerful platforms for making ideas happen.
How can this be used in your own processes?
