Structuring projects with XMind
Mind mapping programs let you visualize projects and plans on your PC. If you want to work more efficiently, you'll want to keep the free XMind for Linux in mind.
The free XMind mind mapper lets you develop your plans professionally, efficiently, and quickly on your PC. The software scope leaves very little to be desired.
A structured approach is regarded as essential to success today. If you fail to "collect your thoughts," you are in danger of forgetting or overlooking some critical aspect in a scenario. The kind of environment you work in makes very little difference: Preparing and following up on calls and designing business models in a corporate environment need just as much planning as decorating your apartment or setting up a home network.
To avoid losing track of complex projects and tasks, more conservative characters will tend to go for yellow sticky notes. But mind mapping programs give you a far more professional approach to managing collections of ideas. Although programs of this kind can be expensive on proprietary operating systems, XMind  for Linux offers an impressive range of features and a free license and tops the bill with a well thought out interface and simple controls.
