Mapping your mind

blank-mind-mapWhat is a mind map? Put simply, it’s a type of diagram, used to help you outline information in a visual format. But really, a mindmap can be anything you need it to be.

It begins with a single concept, located in the center of the map, and other ideas, tasks, keywords and/or thoughts are appended. Items can be categorized, with the map creating branches leading out from the central concept.

See several examples of mind-maps below.
