How to Brainstorm Ideas and Avoid Overthinking

If you have content creation overwhelm, mindmap your ideas. 

Are you trying to sort what’s important or what isn’t for the next quarter? 

It can be challenging to isolate and prioritize your needle moving projects!

No worries, I gotcha covered.


Mental Conflict is Toxic

Communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist Caroline Leaf wrote the human brain is designed to anticipate and hope for the best.

That means conflict is jarring. When plans are vague, we live with toxic mental conflict.

When we overthink, ideas have no ship or a captain. We drown in a pool of anxiety, waiting for any distraction to consume our focus.

We become busy with non-income producing work.


Are you Symptomatic?

Are you suffering from toxic overthinking? Do you have…

  1. An inability to focus
  2. Unhealthy anxiety
  3. Chronic negative thinking

Don’t worry, you just need closure. I’ll show you how to restore peace and productivity.  



Create a Digital File Cabinet with All Your Ideas

If you want closure from toxic overthinking, create a mindmap and free your mind of clutter.

Get all your ideas, projects, and tasks, out of your head and onto a digital device.

Store Mindmaps in folders. Folders become a virtual file cabinet with all your ideas.

Mindmapping has been a game-changer for me and transformed my workflow.

In 2020, I was able to

  • Rebranded my Website

  • Begin my Copywriting Services
  • Launch Group Coaching Programs 
  • Host Pacesetters List-Building Mastermind


Mindmapping Simplifies the Brainstorming Process

Brian Tracy says, “Every minute you spend in planning saves 10 minutes in execution; this gives you a 1,000 percent Return on Energy!”

What if you had an entire year planned?

How much time would you save in a month, quarter, or year?

  • Create a plan; work the plan.
  • Complete a project. Ah, I love those completion checkmarks! 
  • Table the projects that aren’t relevant to your current goals. 

Simplemind will maximize your productivity. You’ll focus on the big bucket goals and break down the tasks into smaller, actionable steps.


What is SimpleMind?

Simplemind helps you gather, organize, analyze your projects.

You can use it across many devices: Windows, Mac, Android, iPhone, or iPad.
