How This Man Returned to Mind Mapping After 3 Years AwayMind Mapping can greatly help you to get by whether you’re a student or a professional and in this interview, you will discover how Matthew Lang, a web developer, used it to help him through his studies.  After three years of not using it he “re-discovered” it and now it is a fundamental part of his toolkit for his work.

Matthew shares how a Mind Map can be used for both logically dominated thought processes and topics (such as learning Computer Science!) and for more creative work that might be classified as “right brain” effort.  This interview demonstrates that regardless of whether you’re a logical or a creative person, Mind Mapping not only stimulates both sides of the brain, but also allows you to harness them more efficiently and more effectively.

As well as sharing how he uses it in his work, Matthew also speaks about how he uses Mind Mapping  to blog posts and novels.
