The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know.
Mindmapping has apparently been around for years, but I was completely unaware of its existence until a few days ago. I’ve been looking for the best way to build a knowledge base or dashboard for projects at work, and stumbled upon Freemind. While watching the demo video, I was struck with the thought that this may be the
Coolest. App. Ever.
Now that the new and shiny aspects have worn off, I still think it’s an incredibly cool tool. I’ve been playing around with it at work for projects. I’ll also start trying to use it to track all of the stuff that spills out of my brain.
Last night, I started mapping some ideas that I’ve had floating around, only to discover that there wasn’t much there. What happened to the fount of creativity that spawns half-baked ideas at breakneck speeds? Either my brain is actually empty, and I’ve been fooling myself for years, or it’s time to start some creativity replenishing.
