  4. 4. A mind map is an imagethat represents an idea.
  5. 5. Its based on a singular brain feature: ideas association.
  6. 6. This phenomenon is inherentand natural in human brains.
  7. 7. According to this phenomena, given a current stimulus, like
  8. 8. a word or an image, is evoking the related ideas before.
  9. 9. For example: the word perfume could be associated to
  10. 10. flowers, garden, seduction,cleaning, nose, beauty, spices...
  11. 11. The connection of ideas is not a rational act.
  12. 12. It depends on asubjective state such as
  13. 13. the liveliness of spirit,the stock of knowledge
  14. 14. and quality of memory of each one of us.
  15. 15. You can use some colouredpencils and a blank sheet paper
  16. 16. or even softwaresto create mind maps.
  17. 17. Once you have your own brain you can choose any tool
  18. 18. according to your personal skills and preferences.
  19. 19. Anyway, the main ruleto create a mind map is:
  20. 20. dont judge the ideas! Just let them flow...
  21. 21. Drop the ideas in the paperas they appear into your mind.
  22. 22. Later, there will be timeto order and to edit everything.
  23. 23. Mind maps are about“non-linear” thinking.
  24. 24. A mind map is the best way to overview a project.
  25. 25. Mind maps are useful to projects specially during the planning
  26. 26. and also as a way to memorize the entire project,
  27. 27. the idea, the plan,the strategy, the content...
  28. 28. basically, you can createmind maps about everything.
  29. 29. Using mind maps, you can limit and focus your action.
  30. 30. Using mind maps you can planthe content of the project and
  31. 31. its easier to define your goals and your resources.
  32. 32. You can create mind maps alone or in groups: its up to you.
  33. 33. Are you ready to create amind map from the begining?
  34. 34. Draw the main idea in the center of the blank sheet paper.
  35. 35. Write the key word and drawsomething that represents it.
  36. 36. You must start alwaysin the middle of the paper.
  37. 37. Otherwise you risk to create something linear as a list.
  38. 38. Use as many colours as you cannot just because its beautiful.
  39. 39. (And people love and remember beautiful things easier.)
  40. 40. But also because using manycolours you will help your brain
  41. 41. to be free to start theidea association process.
  42. 42. Focus on the main idea.What is it about? Write it!
  43. 43. When you think to the main idea what comes into your mind?
  44. 44. Draw and write each idea in adifferent branche. Go ahead!
  45. 45. Just let the ideas flow and find a rhythm to welcome them...
  46. 46. Once you are satisfied with the main branches
  47. 47. you can repeat the samemethod to create sub-branches.
  48. 48. And so on, until you feel yourbrain is totally empty (for now).
  49. 49. You can repeat this process as many times as you like.
  50. 50. Finally, you can edit, organize and order the information.
  51. 51. Thats it! You just made your own mind map! Congrats!
