  9. 9. Step 1:Centre FirstMind mapping begins with a word or imagethat symbolizes what you want to think about ,placed in the middle of the page.<br />
  10. 10. Step 2:Lighten Up!Mind mapping is simply a brain &apos;dumping&apos;process that helps stimulate new ideas andconnections. Start with an open, playful attitude... you can always get serious later.<br />
  11. 11. Step 3:Free AssociateAs ideas emerge, write one or two worddescriptions of the ideas around the centralidea. Allow the ideas to expand outward intobranches and sub-branches. Put down all ideas without judgment or evaluation.<br />
  12. 12. Step 4: Think FastBrains work best in 5-7 minute bursts, socapture that explosion of ideas as rapidly aspossible. Key words, symbols and imagesprovide a mental short-hand to help you recordideas as quickly as possible.<br />
  13. 13. Step 5:Break BoundariesGet rid of the idea that you always have to workon white, A4-size paper with black ink or pencil. Use A3 or better A2-size paper or cover an entire wall with wall paper ... the bigger the paper, the more ideas you&apos;ll have.Use wild colors, fat colored markers, crayons, or skinny felt tipped pens.<br />
  14. 14. Step 6: Judge NotPut everything down that comes into your minds, even if it is completely unrelated.If you&apos;re brainstorming ideas for a report about renewable energy resources and you suddenly remember there is also a mathematics test toprepare for next week, put down &quot;mathstest next week.“ <br />
  15. 15. Step 7: Keep MovingKeep your hands moving!If ideas slow down, draw empty spaces and watch your brains automatically find ideas to fill them with.Or change colors to re-energize your minds.Stand up and walk around, talking out loudly to generate even more energy. <br />
  16. 16. Step 8:Allow OrganizationSometimes you see relationships andconnections immediately and you can add sub-branchesto a main idea.Sometimes you do not, then you just connect the ideas to the central idea. Organizationcan always come later; the first requirement is to get the ideas out of your head and onto the paper.<br />
