A few weeks ago, I participated in the ReadWriteMap, a virtual event put on by Bigger Plate for anyone interested in reading, writing, or mind mapping. There were several speakers who presented on a variety of topics, and it was a lot of fun.
My session was on how I use mind mapping to take notes on books that I read. I got into the nitty gritty details about how and why I read physical books yet take notes in MindNode on my phone, and walked through (for the first time publicly) how I transfer all those notes into Roam Research so I can connect them and find them again.
Here’s a video replay of my session if you’re interested in seeing how I set up my system to retain as much information as possible and use it effectively to aid my creative process.
if you’re interested, you can access the recordings from the entire event with a Bigger Plate Pro membership ($29.99/year). They also have a huge library of mind mapping templates that are ready to download and use in your mind mapping app of choice.
And if you’re interested in learning more about mind mapping in general or how to make the most of MindNode, check out our own Mastering Mind Maps course. It covers everything you need to know to start connecting your own dots and crafting your own idea development system.
