    I wanted to throw this out there, and see if anyone knew of such software that existed.

    This is all still theory and thought, but I really do want to get my butt in gear and get to actually doing something. Making large goals into shorter, smaller ones is often preached here. For example purposes, let us pretend my goal is to steal a Full Throttle from Wal-Mart. Quick and dirty, the layout would look similar to this.

    • Distract Cashier
    • Grab Enery Drink
    • Slowly Leave Unnoticed

    I just took one larger goal and split it into three smaller ones. I can take this even further (I assume [correct me if I'm wrong] that the aim is to make one large goal into as many small ones as possible) and split those 3 goals into additional smaller ones.

    Anyways, I wanted to know if their was software that automated the creation of "tree branches", or "brackets", of these. I really don't know if that was the correct terminology, but I'll quickly doodle what I mean and hopefully it will make sense to all. I'm asking for something that generates images, if that wasn't clear.

    That is something that would be helpful to me also. I get overwhelmed when I look at my goal sheet.

    I remember their being a bracket generator, for gaming tournaments, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    I believe I have found what I wanted. It is called MindMeister. Take a look at the image I've attached. It does what I want, just not the way I want. I'm OCD and tend to favor the branches/nodes to be aligned. The second image attached is what I stumbled when searching "tree diagram generator", so again, I'm going to assume what I'm looking for is not a MindMapping software, but a Tree Generator Software.
