Mind maps are the best way to visually and textually organize your ideas, projects, thoughts, and tasks in a way that gives you a structure and sensibly links related concepts.
1. Open a standard map: with the main topic at the centre.
2. Jot down all my ideas: without structure, in brainstorming mode.
3. Review my big mess: It supports me to eliminate what is not interesting, associate what is identical. etc
4. Review my clean new frame: I’ll review, connect it to images, leading words, and reduce it to the minimum needed.
5. Rehearse it, produce it… lose time, save time: I’ll work on producing (writing a document) or rehearsing (speech).
Any entrepreneur (and any expert on cognition / learning) will tell you that practical knowledge is best developed by doing, not just thinking or planning.
For careers, too, you don’t know what the best plan is until you try.
Represented by individual steps that start from a problem and lead to a solution.
Each step is denoted by a different kind of shape which symbolizes whether the note requires action or decision. Unlike the timeline, a flow chart can veer in multiple directions, leading to different scenarios.
