How to Mind Map

1 Comment How To..., Tony Buzan, iMindMap

Mind Mapping, the technique invented by Tony Buzan, is proven to boost your productivity, efficiency, creativity, memory and improve your ability to learn information.

The beauty of Mind Maps is that they are adaptable. The radiant layout means that you can keep adding ideas without losing a coherent structure, and personalise it with your own images and symbols to boost your recall of the information.

Mind Mapping also helps you to focus on the relationships between your ideas and uses associations to help you generate more. Perhaps most importantly, a Mind Map can consolidate large quantities of information onto one page.

This versatile technique is already used by over 250 million people worldwide for a variety of tasks including brainstorming, identifying new opportunities, organising, managing projects, teaching, studying, communicating information and much more.
