  • Maps: Defined generally as a representation of the whole or a part of an area… They visualize arrangements, distribution, or sequences… www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • Origins of Mind Mapping • First described by Tony Buzan, a psychologist and brain scientist • In 1974, BBC TV ran a series by Tony Buzan called Use Your Head. This introduced the term “Mind Map” for the first time www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • The Creator: Tony Buzan www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771

  • Why? 1. Mind mapping provides us with an alternative to typical, linear note-taking, and enables us to use all parts of our brain. 2. Mind mapping leverages the power of associative thinking, which is naturally how your brain works. 3. Mind mapping follows your brain’s natural inclination allows for more efficient memorization 4. Mind mapping helps us to generate more creative ideas efficiently www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • Mind Mapping Theory The theory behind Radiant Thinking or Mind Mapping is: • Radiant Thinking reflects you internal [brain] structure and processes. The Mind Map is your external mirror of your own Radiant Thinking and allows you access into this vast thinking powerhouse. www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • Right Brain – Left Brain
  • The mind map harnesses the full range of cortical skills—word, image, number, logic, rhythm, color and spatial awareness—in a single, uniquely powerful technique.In doing so, it gives you the freedom to roam the infinite expanse of your brain. Tony Buzan Author, The Mind Map Book
  • Keys to Learning – Association and Emphasis • Association – Mind maps associate – based on logic of association – Our brains tend to look for pattern and completion (one, two, three…) • Emphasis – Mind maps allow you to differentiate branches based on emphasis • Can’t do this as well in linear notes • BIG difference between constructing a mind map for your own use, and using a mind map to convey information to others who did not participate in creating it www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • Mind Mapping Workshop The Enemy The Solution www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • Linear Notes vs. Mind Mapping www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • Mind Maps as Notes • Note-making vs. note-taking • Standard notes – a complete absence of: – Visual rhythm – Visual pattern, or any pattern – Color – Imagery (Imagination) – Visualization – Dimension – Spatial awareness – Gestalt (Wholeness) – Association(s) www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • How to Mind Map
  • Every time you have a thought, biochemical/magnetic resistance along thepathway carrying that thought is reduced, like trying to clear a path through a forest. Therefore, and of greater significance,repetition in itself increases the probability of repetition.The more times a mental event happens, the more likely it is to happen again. Tony Buzan Author, The Mind Map Book
  • The Five Essential Characteristics of a Mind Map 1. The main idea, subject or focus is crystallized in a central image 2. The main themes radiate from the central image as branches 3. The branches comprise a key image or key word drawn or printed on its associated line 4. Topics of lesser importance are represented as twigs of the relevant branch 5. The branches form a connected nodal structure www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • 1. Start With a Central Idea or Core Concept • Typically this is an idea you want to expand on or a problem you want to solve • Ideally an image, but can be a keyword • Closer to center = abstract • In the branches = concrete www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • 2. Radiate Outward • Basic Ordering Ideas (BOI) • Great questions to get started on the branches of a mind map: – What knowledge is required? – If this were a book, what are the chapter headings? – What are my specific objectives? – What are the most important seven categories in the area under consideration? – What are my basic questions? ‘Why?’, ‘What?’, ‘Who?’, ‘How?’, ‘Which?’, ‘When?’ www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • 3. Add Keywords and Subtopics • Use free association and write down all of the ideas that come to mind • Think in curved lines and images if you can • No limit to the branches you can add www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • How to Mind Map 4. Map Outside the Lines There’s a time and a place for 8 1/2 x 11” paper - mind maps aren’t one of them. Give yourself plenty of real estate to work with so that your ideas aren’t restricted by a tiny piece of paper. Try using ledger paper or better yet, an entire whiteboard wall. 5. Remove Your Filter As you brainstorm, write down all of your thoughts. Even if your mind wanders off to what you’re having for dinner tonight, write it down. If you don’t, you’ll keep coming back to that thought until it is properly addressed. Write first, edit later. www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • How to Mind Map 6. Map the Rainbow Give your mind maps another layer of organization with color. Use at least 3 different colors in your mind map as a way to further classify ideas and subtopics. 7. Use Images Using images and graphics in your mind map is another way to help your brain process and organize the information. Draw or insert images whenever you think of it to enhance the meaning of different keywords or topics. www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • How to Mind Map 8. Make Connections As topics and subtopics emerge, you’ll start to notice associations between ideas that aren’t necessarily grouped together. It’s important to note these relationships using additional lines and arrows. www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771

  • The Immense Value of Images in Mind Maps www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  • The Immense Value of Images in Mind Maps • We must overcome our inhibitions about drawing “bad images” • The brain has near perfect recall of images – recall of 2560 images with 85 – 95% accuracy (and that’s an “average” person…not photographic memory required) • Images are more evocative than words • Mind mapping can bridge the gap between images and words – the full power of a mind map is realized by having a central image vs. a word www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
