Yesterday, I felt very inspired by a discussion we had focused on productivity strategies. One of the many topics that really piqued my interest was discussing how to organize ideas. When it came down to it, I realized I didn’t have a great plan of how to connect my ideas on paper, and it ends up with my notebook being an absolute mess. Mind-mapping is used to connect ideas to one another. I love to write my ideas down on paper first, I found it was easier when it came to mapping things out in an application.

How it works:

Coggle allows you to map whatever is going on within your head. Whether it’s a new business idea, something for a project, or even planning out a birthday party for a friend, Coggle allows you to throw your ideas into one big connected map. You can create as many maps as you’d like, and organize ideas by color, topic, or however you’d like.

Favorite feature:

My personal favorite feature is the collaborative aspect of Coggle. You can invite people to work on a map with you, and adjust permission as needed. I could definitely see myself using this feature to get other people’s ideas, and plans in here as well. I definitely expect to use this feature a lot for planning parties and events for friends, family and myself.

When it comes to figuring out a better way to map ideas out, Coggle offers a streamlined and easy user experience. It also offers a collaborative way to share and build those ideas together.
