How to master
all the key nuances
of creating mind maps in 10 minutes?
02 august 2021
And most importantly, to master for years.
So that you don't have to go back to it.
It's easy with the quick, interactive assignments below.
The hour of work will teach more than a day of explanations.
- Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
Here is about how to create mind maps.
About what mind maps are
and why you need them, see this cyberpunk article
How to survive by jumping out of a helicopter.
So, to the point...
Start at the center of the mind map
That's the main idea,
the main question,
It could be anything, for example:
- Cloud colonization
- Creating a computer game
- Journey on the bicycle around the world
Try doing it right now here.
Write, for example, "How I can earn 10 times more."
Write it, or you will forget everything.
How many times this has happened before:
"Oh, I'll definitely remember the password 123-something."
First, add the branches with the main directions.
And then divide them into sub-branches.
You're like a maniac with drool in your mouth
dissects the problem/issue into small pieces
looking it right in the eye.
In short, let's shred the subject as a salad..
The main thing to remember is:
use small pieces - so write phrases as short as possible,
even better just words.
I mean, not like this:
In fact, in bits and pieces:
Because then it's easier for you to go into the Flow State and get more cool solutions and ideas.
When you just want to write something down, you can use long phrases. But short phrases work much better.
first select the center branch, then
Now add a few branches.
Just a little bit of salad is enough for a workout.
And moving on...
Why didn't we
even suggest in this article
that you can try mind maps on paper?
"Oops, should I erase and redraw these 10 branches to add 1 more word?"
- Move the canvas with the mouse
(which, unlike paper, stretches to infinity when you add branches).
- Swap the branches.
- Move the branch to the left side.
Yes, we agree, drawing on paper is cool too, fine motor skills and blah blah blah.
Lots of people make mind maps on the computer.
To do it on paper, alas, is lazy. And for the most part, that's what the right smart girls do, who have nothing better to do than to be right..
Why are there colors in mind maps?
Of course, to make it beautiful
Have you noticed how clearly and easily you see the difference between branches when they are different colors?
Instead of figuring out the structure, the colors allow you to see the map at a glance.
The colors in the mind map can also mean something
(but not necessarily)
Red - Bad
Green - Good
Orange - Action
Blue - Calm
By the way, shapes and colors are used in programming in exactly the same way.
This is why programmers often review code at such a rate.
Because they don't read the words.
They scan the structure in an instant.
Instead of 1,000 words
- The branches are thicker at the beginning, towards the end thinner!!!
- The inscription is ABOVE the branches
- Inscriptions are in the same color like branches
- The entire branch with sub-lights are one color
Creator of the mind map technique.
And a mega smart man.
Where can I create
Here, of course - on IOctopus.online :)
Because IOctopus, unlike many analogues,
conforms to many of the principles of Tony Buzan (the creator of mind maps).
This helps you:
- to cope with difficult tasks more easily
- to make decisions more easily
- to memorize large amounts of information
- and etc...
This helps others:
- clearer and easier to perceive your thoughts, ideas, presentations
And many users also say that it's just good here 😌
Can I keep this mind map I just made?
Just register from the same browser and this mind map will be saved in your documents.
We seem to have a great relationship. Look, there's a new button at the top that makes the connections between branches.
