Planning can be a tricky business. The world we live in is ever-changing, complex, fast-paced and original; it can be hard for us to keep up! From unexpected obstacles to mental blocks, there are many challenges for us to overcome when planning a project. One minute everything’s working out as predicted – the next, things begin to fall apart. Luckily, iMindMap’s on hand to help you plan with relative ease.
Feeling overwhelmed and drawing a blank?
Planning can be complex. Incredibly complex, in fact. The intricacy of your own ideas combined with a million different planning possibilities could mean you suffer a mental block, unable to think or do anything even remotely related to planning because you’re just too overwhelmed to cope.
iMindMap allows you to take control once and for all. By making a Mind Map in Mind Map View, you are creating a clear structure for your ideas, making the planning process seem less daunting and more rewarding. In addition to this, Mind Maps have a radiant structure and place a lot of focus on images and keywords, encouraging associative thinking and sparking ideas. This means you’ll never feel stuck in the planning stages of your project; instead you’ll feel confident about progressing to the implementation stages armed with your plan.
Worried about making changes?
It’s hard to achieve your aims when the goalposts are forever moving, but that’s something to get used to if your plans are ever going to succeed. You need to be as adaptable as the world around you. You need to try to imagine every possibility that lies ahead of you in your project. You need to be able to predict the unpredictable. This is a tall order, but it’s achievable with the right mindset and tools.
iMindMap’s Mind Map View is more adaptable than linear lists, so you don’t have to worry about making mistakes or tweaking ideas. Mind Maps in Mind Map View give you the flexibility to add points you’ve missed to your plan and delete those that are no longer relevant at the click of a button. You can always come back and neatly rearrange your thoughts when external circumstances intervene, without messing up the overall layout.
Scared you’ll miss something?
Planning can sometimes leave you feeling drained. After all, you have to deal with the possibility of unforeseen problems within projects. However, it’s important to keep the bigger picture in mind and review your plan so you don’t miss anything that could prove important in the implementation stages.
Mind Map View gives you a complete visual overview of your plan, allowing you to instantly spot any gaps and anticipate problems before they have the chance to occur. By taking a little time here to review your plan and predict future problems, you will save yourself hassle later down the line during the implementation stages.
Falling behind schedule?
Sometimes, as hard as we may try to stay on track with our work, things like procrastination and a lack of clear direction can really slow a project down and negatively impact its overall success.
iMindMap’s Time Map View helps you keep your projects on track by allowing you to easily assemble and implement your ideas into actionable tasks. By creating an interactive timeline of important milestones, start dates and tasks, you can plan ahead of schedule and stay on top of your workload with ease.
