Ideation: Mind Mapping

Mind Mapping is a technique that produces ideas by association and has been my go-to method for a while. I use it to map out my thoughts whenever I approach a project or when I need to confirm the logic or steps of something. Tony Buzan popularised the mind mapping technique back in 1974 and introduced his readers to mind maps.

You place a central idea on a page and then branch out from it with keywords in a mind map.

A 2005 study by Glennis Edge Cunningham, asserts that 80 per cent of students reported better learning through mind maps. So I must be doing something right.

It transforms a huge list of dull or tedious information into a logical, colourful and memorable representation. Helping you visualise the different pieces of information and how they are connected.


Step 1
Put a topic in the center of the page.

Step 2
Add new word associations from the central word.

Step 3
Limit words to key phrases on each branch and allow your brain to flow freely and quickly.

Step 4
Colour code threads of information so you can scan through the map later.

Step 5
Review and revise as needed.
