You know you are facing a problem when you find yourself in a condition which is different than the desired one. If the problem is simple, then the solution is usually quite obvious. But when you’re facing a more complex issue, the card up your sleeve is to get in a problem-solving state of mind. There is a saying that in order to understand a problem profoundly, you need to see the bigger picture. If this doesn’t come naturally at first, mind mapping will help you. Mind maps let you create visual databases, so you can see everything in one page – the root of your problem, its causes, on-the-spot ideas on how you can fix it, etc. Let’s take an example: you have a travel agency that’s going through…

Our example is a strong line to point out the product’s good quality/price report. Second step: find a few main ideas that branch out of your central idea, same as you would do with a statement when you need to support it with arguments. At this point you’ll give a frame to your presentation and, in the same time, you’ll give more details about the product.…

If you have been mind mapping like crazy, and your friends and colleagues also shared their maps with you,  you might want to know how to put everything in order. A handy solution is to organize your maps into folders. This way you can classify maps according to their importance (e.g. separate work-related maps from personal development maps). Also, you can put your shared maps into folders, a folder for each person that has been sharing maps with you.
