A friend told me about an online mind mapping tool that helped him to organize the 1,000 ideas in his head. So let me pass on this little productivity tip to you.
Without further ado, here is the tool he recommended to me.
Mind mapping allows you to lay out your ideas and thoughts kind of visually. Related items are close together. Therefore, you don't need much space and keep the overview easily. I am not going into the details of mind mapping (sorry), but some advantages of using an online tool like the one my friend recommends.
- It's easy to rearrange items. You don't run out of space, like you would probably on a sheet of paper.
- Major advantage: You can share your maps with a team easily.
- Your data is accessible from anywhere.
(Check terms of service, etc. and make your own decision about the risks of outsourcing your sensitive data that way.)
- MindMeister.com (↑) offers a free basic version, besides that the rates are very reasonable.
I have signed up for a free account today. I just started to check it out myself. I am not affiliated with MindMeister.
Have a nice weekend.

Update: Vic Gee left a comment pointing to his extensive, great resource about various mind mapping tools. You definitely should check it out.
