Mind maps and productivity
Productivity is a huge buzzword that has become even more relevant in our current situation. Boosting productivity and working more efficiently is something that everyone can always get more of. We here at draw.io love to help you find your productivity mojo. Collaborating on projects remotely needs to be efficient and useful. Even the most free form thinkers among us have occasion to jot down our ideas in some form. Whether it be quick notes on a napkin while having afternoon tea or on post-its all over the house, most of us have found it very helpful to put what’s in our heads out there in the world somehow.
According to Forbes there are 5 ways you can increase your workday productivity:
- Stop multitasking
- Take breaks
- Set small goals
- Do the more complex tasks when your mind is freshest
- Implement the “two-minute rule”
A mind map at its very core is a central idea that branches out into other, related ideas. Think of it like gremlins – you throw water on one and suddenly, you have 10 others. And just like gremlins, your ideas might end up getting out of hand if you don’t have a way to control them. Mind maps are a great way to get everything you have in your head out, but still not lose sight of the information.
The great thing about using draw.io to create these mindmaps is that they can grow with your ideas or project. For example, is one branch of your central idea bearing more fruit than the others? Take that make it fold! How about if you have a multi-disciplinary project? You can spread each team’s mind map over several pages!
