Organize your story with Mohiomap

Planning and organizing are two things everyone has in common and often require doing on a daily basis. No matter if this is managing your to-do list or getting a presentation together for that all important meeting.
Planning and organizing are two things everyone has in common and often require doing on a daily basis. It’s almost like telling a great story where we start with ideas and arrange them into something cohesive that as an individual we understand. Even if this is managing your to-do list or getting a presentation together for that all important meeting, the execution comes as the ideas are finally understood by all.
Everyone begins with ideas. Thought leaders innovate with their lightbulb or Eureka moments, writers plan out their narratives and professors plan their classes and presentations. It helps you to see all your ideas in one place and can even keep you focused more on your task or objective.
Mohiomap is a great tool to keep these ideas and thoughts organized. Some of these ways include using Mohiomap with your multitude of tasks by holding different projects in different nodes (i.e. a document in Google Drive or a Note in Evernote) and label them with what makes sense to you. You decide perhaps that one idea (note or document) needs to be in a different node, simply drag it to the node it needs to be in. You’re not sure if an idea should be in multiple areas in Evernote? Just duplicate the note and decide once your plans are further organized.
So how do we apply this?
We have found at Mohiomap there are three types of use cases where storytelling is an important part. Here I’ve detailed how Mohiomap can be applied to each of these use cases: the writer, the thought leader and the professor.
Collate the ideas and remove the linearity by connecting these notes as a visual map.
You probably have a mass of notes collated on your next big blog, book or article but not quite have them organized to have them right where you need them, and in the right order. Mohiomap helps you get started on your writing quicker by having everything you need in one space. You can organize your notes or documents by theme, part of the story or even handle multiple tiers of stories if you’re in the process of writing more than just one piece.
For thought leaders:
Add your ideas from Evernote, Google Drive, Box and/or Dropbox into folders that make sense to you. Collate the ideas and remove the linearity by connecting these notes as a visual map. Then subdivide as you wish. Even color code, if you have Mohiomap Premium. If you need to present these ideas, you can navigate to a node to only show the detail within it. Keeping your next big thing in your other node still under wraps.
For professors and teachers:
We love that Mohiomap can be integrated into the classroom setting. Organising what will be done each class and visually presenting the information in a logical manner is helpful in the classroom. Easily moving ideas, concepts and objectives in the one space allows the teachers and professors to be more organized, dynamic and agile in the class.
Use the tools around you that help in this process. Clip notes via the Evernote Web Clipper to keeping the apps close to home on your Chrome App Dashboard. Give yourself the foundation to get back to work quicker everyday.
Whether I were a writer, a thought leader or a teacher, I would need these ideas to be organized in a way that was most useful.
These are just some of the many ways you can use Mohiomap. The app is a great organiser for your plethora of Cloud files - it also provides a solution for the mass amounts of ideas we have and put to the pile of ‘things for the future’. We find at Mohio, the writers, professors and thought leaders are great examples of how anyone can get started with Mohiomap.
My role as Digital Marketer at Mohiomap means I am collating a lot of ideas and store them in a place for me to not only quickly access them but also be left in an organised manner for my team to understand. Whether I were a writer, a thought leader or a teacher, I would need these ideas to be organized in a way that was most useful. The methods detailed above are what I have been able to implement in my own workflow whether it be collating images in Dropbox to tagging my meeting notes and reminders in Evernote and are applicable in some way or another to any of our users.
