The words on these branches are essentially sub-topics of the words you wrote on your main branches. Keep expanding the Mind Map outwards with additional sub sub-topics / key words and branches. Interlink the branches/nodes with each other whenever an association exists.

But while we‘ve gone a long way towards optimizing how we use information, we haven‘t yet done the same for knowledge… OneNote and a new generation of ‗mind-mapping‘ software can be used as a digital ‗blank slate‘ to help connect and synthesize ideas and data— and ultimately create new knowledge.‖ – Bill Gates, Newsweek, (2009) * InnovationTools.com, Dec.2009
