Mindmapping for creativity

There's a lot to like in the (unrestrained!) enthusiasm this author shows for Mindmaps.

Mindmapping helps you be creative AND get things done

I've seen comments from people who have looked at mindmapping but never used the technique: "I never know what to do with the mindmap once I've got it." Well, here's one answer.
