Using Mind Pad to catch ideas

Mind Pad makes the thinking process visible. Using Mind Pad allows you to comprehend any “bad connections” which you had made previously in your thought and avoid inappropriate and misplaced judgments and decisions.

When you deal with a lot of information, the problem is to catch/grasp all the ideas, and represent them in an ordered and organized way. Mind Pad allows organizing information and makes it easy to both input and recall. If more information has been discovered, it can be easily integrated into the previous map without destroying its structure.

The Mind Pad may be used as a “thought catcher”. The typical map can accommodate between 7 and 9 main branches. When thinking linearly, as the list of ideas grow, so the number of further possibilities seems to diminish. In a Mind Pad, the ideas multiply as they “bloom” outwards, and the number of further possibilities actually increases.

With Mind Pad you can collect and represent information effectively
