Brain Booster: Understanding the advantages of Mind Mapping part 2

Mind maps can be drawn by hand, either as “rough notes” during a lecture or a meeting. The following are (4) salient features in the Mind Mapping Process.

  1. Start with your Main Idea:

              Write the Idea in the middle of a blank sheet of paper. Then list the first idea that comes into your mind. After which write down any similar thoughts. As you exhaust ideas on a topic, then go to the next idea. Note down all related points. Keep on doing this again and again until you have finished all the thoughts and related points you want to cover.

  1. Be Continuous and Steady:

      A pinball machine can bounce around very quickly to numerous ideas before it comes up with a logical answer. This is one of the models which can be used for the mind. From past events, we can say someone says something to you and in turn, you pause for 60-90 seconds and then reply. Your listener asks you where your response came from. To this, you say, “You said this, which reminded me of that, and that made me think of that, and that’s why I said that to you.”

3) Make sure you use the CORRECT WORDS NEEDED:

  Do you know that human beings think faster than they can write? The human mind can think of approximately 1,150 to 1,700 words in 60 to 80 seconds. On average, most people only write freehand 30 to 45 words in 60-80 seconds. The best of us can type a little more than 100-130 words in a minute. The key concept is to think in bullets and jot down one or two words that capture the concept in the mind. 

4) Try short bursts:  

            Time yourself for 10-15 minutes, then take a break. Look at your mind map. Now do something else. Afterwards, spend another 8-12 minutes adding, modifying and adjusting. 

Mind Mapping saves the time it takes to develop a presentation, a report, an article, or a letter by approximately 60 to 75 per cent. It allows you to use words to visually relate concepts and information in ways that are very interesting.

In conclusion, Mind Map is such a useful tool which helps an individual helps you see not only what is there, but also what is missing.
