For example, have you ever had a problem where the answer always seemed to be just out of your grasp? You've check all the books and the answers you've come up with are technically right but...it's just not what you're looking for. This might be a great time to use some creative problem solving strategies. Stop looking at the books and look into the corners of your mind and you might be surprised with what you come up with.
Sometimes all those good solutions that come from creativity can get lost in the chaos if we don't have some form of organization. But too much organization can put a halt to the creativity. So, how do you let the creativity flow and still hold on to enough organization that you are able to get the great ideas that come from it? One of the best ways to do this is with mind mapping.
