Mind mapping search engine

The specialist mind mapping search engine
Google Custom Search
Use this to do a focused Google search of valued mind-mapping websites. This search box ignores the mindmapping bandwagon all-adverts sites, the trivial three-line posts about someone's new mind-map, and pages for old software on software download sites.

So what?
So if you search for, say, "finance", then everything returned will be related to finance and mind mapping. And because the web sites have been chosen carefully (without fear or favour), you won't see web pages that just happen to include the words "mapping", "finance" and "mind".


The specialist concept mapping search engine
Google Custom Search
Use this to do an equivalent, focused search of chosen concept-mapping websites.

Mindmapping can remove creativity blocks

Here's a view of creativity worth reading. It mentions mindmapping only briefly but it does provide a hint to one of the ways around creative blockage. I've added one of my own at the foot.

Crack the barriers to creativity

Mind mapping can help with creativity – it frees you from the rigidity of lists for example – and with its visual approach stimulates alternative ways of viewing a problem. But here, Joann adds a barrage of other techniques to help you crack barriers to creativity.

Basic introduction to mindmapping

I didn't see why this shouldn't work all the year round. No need to wait for the New Year - here it is.

Mindmapping for the quick-witted

This is a good, quick description of what mindmapping is, when applied to its use for note taking. It’s a little short on specifics and examples, so you’ll have to browse further on mind-mapping.org for those.

Vegetable or royalty – take your pick with mindmapping

Whether you have vegetable or royal aspirations, I can confirm that you'll find mindmapping a great way of calming yourself down when you have many calls on your time, ideas buzzing round your head and objectives to meet. But it must fit your own personal style of thinking, and you must set aside the time to do it! That's how I bust stress, not by mapping out my stressful times. But we're all different, and maybe this will work for you.
