You have ideas: for a new business, a novel, a change in career or maybe an exotic trip somewhere. Your thoughts come at weird times: when you wake up, at work, in the shower, driving. You are busy and not as organized as you’d like. Those great ideas get lost.
You could try something to organize and structure related thoughts. Maybe mind mapping? Each chapter of your novel with rough outlines, the countries or cities that you want to visit… Try a mind map and put all related ideas together.
Start with a word or idea and put it in the center. Expand outward with branches, keywords, and additional information.
