"This software rocks golden. Have been looking for this thingy a long time now. My search is over."

" Although I use Microsoft Outlook I found that the task tracking in your software has a better view and layout than Outlook. I like the way that icons can be used for different categories, and the different colours that are used in the main task list make it easier to get an overall picture of outstanding issues."

Brainstorming tips for better time management

What is brainstorming?

If you need to have several good ideas, the best way to get them is to create large number of them first and then to choose the best ones. Brainstorming is a wonderful method for fast ideas generating. It helps you to break out your thinking patterns and look at things into new way. How does it work? You should focus on a problem and then develop very many solutions and ideas in short time.

Individual Brainstorming

Though term "brainstorming" is often refers to group sessions, you can also brainstorm alone. Individual brainstorming has some advantages. You shouldn't worry about other people's opinions, therefore you can be more creative and think more freely. Creative thinking is usual human ability. Everybody has it. Our prejudices and stereotypes can easily block this ability. But you can arouse and use it.

Brainstorming tips

  • Focus on result. Imagine what you would like to get. You should have a clear picture in your mind.
  • Fancy four or five people who are entirely different from you, people of different origin, age, education etc.
  • Imagine what each of these people would think about your problem and what approach to the problem he would have.
  • Now you are ready to start your brainstorming session.
  • Set your mind on creating a certain number of ideas within a short time interval. The deadline should be really pressing – from 3 to 5 minutes. The number of ideas should be really large – 10 or even more, up to 20.
  • Open VIP Organizer and make a list of your ideas. Some of your ideas may seem to be strange, funny or even stupid. Don’t mind about this. Free your imagination. Don’t criticize, don’t evaluate. Don’t be too serious – it’s just a game. Write down whatever comes into your mind.
  • After the time has run out, think over your problem for few more minutes and generate some more ideas. Last ideas could be very useful and promising.

How to Use VIP Software for Brainstorming

  • Write down your ideas during brainstorming session. You can add new item easily and quickly – just press Insert key.
  • Now you have a large list of ideas and you can work with it.
  • You can create different categories and group your ideas by them. Move an item to appropriate category by Drag&Drop method or using context menu.
  • You can evaluate your ideas using different priorities statuses.
  • You can easily sort, filter and group your ideas, and even search through them.
  • After you decide what idea you would like to realize, you can compose detailed to do list, estimate time required, set due dates and so on.
