Mind mapping is a visual technique for displaying or sorting information. A mind map centers on a core idea or theme and has lines, words and images extending from it to connecting ideas or information.
To create a mind map, you begin by putting the core idea or theme in the center of the page and draw a circle around it. You then draw branching lines from the center circle that represent related thoughts and ideas. You can have as many of these branching lines as you like and each of them may divide into two or more other lines of thought.
There is no wrong way to create a mind map as long as it makes sense to you. Mind mapping offers you a lot of creative freedom and can open whole new ways of thinking.
Mind maps can be used for pretty much any thinking or learning task, from studying a subject to building better habits, create a knowledge bank, solve problems, create book summaries, and set goals. They’re great for teams to use as well, for group brainstorming and interactive presentations.
Mind mapping helps you to understand the information at a deep level. If you just read your notes over and over chances are you’ll only understand the content at a superficial level and you’re going to waste a lot of time.
Summing-up: When you use Mind Maps on a daily basis, you will find that your life becomes more productive, fulfilled, and successful on every level. There are no limits to the number of thoughts, ideas and connections that your brain can make, which means that there are no limits to the different ways you can use Mind Maps to help you.
