MindManager Tips and Tricks: A Mindmap to get you started

August 11, 2008

Mindjet has created a MindManager Tips and Tricks Mindmap to help you get started mindmapping.

The mindmap gives you “How-Tos” for the following:

Navigating

  • Expanding and collapse topics
  • Move map using “grip hand”
  • Use the Pan and Zoom window (good for large maps)

Editing

  • Select multiple topics
  • Convert a Topic into a Floating Topic
  • Remove a topic but keep its subtopics

Formatting

  • Display “Advanced Formatting” toolbar
  • Align topics
  • Balance map topics

Creating an image

  • Save your map as an image
  • Paste topic as a bitmap image

Click on the mindmap below to see the details:

The MindManager file (.mmap) for this mindmap is available for download at Mindjet’s website. Click here to download.

You will need MindManager Pro 7, MindManager 7 for Mac or the free MindManager Viewer 7 to download the file.

Personal and Financial Records Mindmap

July 21, 2008

How many times have you searched for a reciept, insurance policy, credit card statement or tax form?  How many times have you wasted time and energy trying to figure out where you put that important document?  

We all have been there.  But now there is a better way. 

To help you quickly organize and locate all those documents whether they be in an electronic form (on your computer) or physical form (in your file cabinet), I’ve created a mindmap that can serve as your template for organizing these documents more efficiently.

This mindmap not only allows you to see where all of your important documents are located (via notes) but also allows you to link Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDFs, or images to the mindmap itself!  No more looking through Windows Explorer trying to find that illusive document.  Or looking through those stacks of paper on your desk.  Now you can organize all of your important documents (or the location of those documents) in one place – a mindmap.

I’ve organize the mindmap into 4 major areas:

  • Records You Carry with You
    • In Your Wallet
    • In Your Vehicle
  • Current Active Records
  • Permanent Active Records
    • Personal Records
    • Property Records
    • Financial Records
    • Investment and Retirement
    • Estate Planning
  • Safe Deposit Box

You can download this mindmap and customize it with your personal and financial information.

The MindManager file (.mmap) for this mindmap is available for download at biggerplate.com.  You will need MindManager Pro 7MindManager 7 for Mac or the free MindManager Viewer 7 to download the file (though you can not customize it with the Viewer)..

The opportunity cost on your time (i.e. the time you could have spent doing something else instead of looking for a document) is well worth the purchase of MindManager.

The iPhone Mindmap: Seeing What the iPhone Can Do

July 14, 2008

As you probably know Apple, Inc. released its latest version of the iPhone on July 11, 2008 in the US.  

As an iPhone user I am just amazed at all the things this phone can do.  I thought a mindmap would be a great way to show all the features of the iPhone.

If you have an iPhone, this mindmap let’s you see just how amazing your new phone really is.  

If you don’t have an iPhone (and you don’t have a problem with AT&T as they are the exclusive provider in the US), you REALLY need to consider getting one.

Whether people like it or not, this phone completely changes the game!

To see the detailed descriptions for each feature under the Notes icon you will have to download the mindmap.

The MindManager file (.mmap) for this mindmap is available for download at biggerplate.com.  You will need MindManager Pro 7MindManager 7 for Mac or the free MindManager Viewer 7 to download the file.

Mindjet: The Industry Leader for Business Mindmapping

June 19, 2008

MindJet, the maker of MindManager Pro 7 and MindManager 7 for Mac, is clearly the industry leader when it comes to business mindmapping.  They have over one million licenses of MindManager software used globally by 85 of the Fortune 100 companies and more  than 50 percent of Global 2000 organizations.  To see a list of company case studies, click here.

Recently, Mindjet launched Mindjet Connect which allows users to collaborate on mindmaps.  As they state on their site, it is “a flexible, secure online environment where anyone from virtually anywhere can work together.”

I am personally a BIG fan of MindManager.  I use it everyday at work and in my personal life.  The tool is extremely flexible.  And once you see how easy it is to create a mindmap dashboard on your computer for all your important files, projects, websites, and links to other mindmaps –  you’ll never manage information the same way again!  I use MindManager Pro 7 for Windows at work and MindManager 7 for Mac at home (and yes, MindManager files from one operating system work on the other).  

In a world where information overload is increasingly becoming a problem for all of us, this tool allows you to capture, organize, and reuse information in ways that work for you.  It enables you to be a master of information – no matter how complex or detailed that information may be.  

MindManager allows you to see the high level relationships and drill down on the details with ease.

And for those of you who like outlines, any MindManager map can be quickly converted to an outline that can be exported to Word in literally two clicks!

On their site, Mindjet illustrates how people are using MindManager today:

Every once in a while there comes a “game changing” software application for business.  MindManager is such an application.  And once you see how useful it is at work, you’ll find yourself using it for your personal life too!
