Do you mind map?

Some of us naturally think graphically and are happiest drawing diagrams to explain structures, concepts, make notes and to think things out. I have just been introduced to some lovely freeware called "Freemind".

You may have found this one already, but it is great tool, and I prefer it to a lot of the alternatives. I use it for planning out ideas, showing the relationship between issues – and it has a polished output that I can pass on to others without having to tidy up my scruffy hand drawn efforts!

I find it helpful to record discussions in meetings, and for sharing thoughts / strategy / objectives. Free to download it has not conflicted with anything on my pc so far…
