Mind Mapping a
Trade Show Plan

To give you an idea of what can be done with mapping in business, I've planned out a trade show. This map was done using the Mind Mapping SoftwareMindomo, a program with a free edition that is excellent. I still can't believe what Mindomo offers for free. I prefer to do my maps on the computer because I like the clean, neat look of them.

In this Mind Map I wanted to plan out all the steps for a trade show that a small company would attend. Because I manage trade shows for a client, this little map is going to come in very handy for me.

Here it is.

Color is Key
Notice how each "branch" in the above map has its' own color? This is very key in mapping. In fact, below is the same map without different colors. See the difference? Amazing, isn't it?

Mind Mapping in Business

Mind Mapping is a great way to get your thoughts organized. I don't know anyone who does not have to organize something, if not multiple things. Especially in business. I use mapping all the time to organize projects, meetings, etc. Once you start, you can't stop!

Mind Mapping in School

Study skills is the perfect place to implement mapping. I can think of six ways to use mapping as I am sitting here writing this, here you go:

  • outlining
  • to study battles in a war
  • map out topics such as energy force and matter
  • schedule all class syllabi so you don't miss any assignments
  • map out a story line
  • use a map as a review tool for exams.

There you go and that's just the tip of the iceberg as far as mapping goes.

Mind Mapping at Home

I often use mapping for home projects. Using maps to plan our family get aways helps me remember all those pesky little details. Things like medicines we may need, maps, flashlights, etc. Try using a map for your next trip. You will be sure to find it handy and helpful.
