Einstein once said something to the effect of, “you cannot solve problems by thinking within the same framework or mindset that discovered the problems.” The implication is that you need to step into another mindset, another level of thinking.

So how do we step into another mindset, as Einstein implies we should? One possible method is mind-mapping, which arguably triggers a much more natural way of thinking and problem solving.

I’ve been a fan of mind mapping for a few years and have given a few talks regarding using this technique to help with projects and solutions, so it’s nice when new articles show up talking about it.
