How Mind Maps Make Researching Easier

When you’re first brainstorming a new idea or researching a topic, you don’t know what ideas you’re going to come up with. As such, it’s hard to plan a layout for the information in a typical report format. A mind map allows you to free yourself from a predefined structure, and lets the ideas grow as you develop them, ensuring that you don’t lose track of your thoughts.

Why Mind Maps Are Better Than Text Notes

Mind maps can be more effective than other brainstorming and linear note-taking methods for a number of reasons:

It's a graphical tool that can incorporate words, images, numbers, and color, so it can be more memorable and enjoyable to create and review. The combination of words and pictures is six times better for remembering information than words alone.
Mind maps link and group concepts together through natural associations. This helps generate more ideas, find deeper meaning in your subject, and also prompt you to fill in more or find what you're missing.
A mind map can at once give you an overview of a large subject while also holding large amounts of information.
It's also a very intuitive way to organize your thoughts, since mind maps mimic the way our brains think—bouncing ideas off of each other, rather than thinking linearly.
You can generate ideas very quickly with this technique and are encouraged to explore different creative pathways.

Using Mind Maps Effectively

Once you understand how to take notes in Mind Map format, you can develop your own conventions for taking them further. The following suggestions can help you draw impactful Mind Maps:

Use Single Words or Simple Phrases – Many words in normal writing are padding, as they ensure that facts are conveyed in the correct context, and in a format that is pleasant to read.

In Mind Maps, single strong words and short, meaningful phrases can convey the same meaning more potently. Excess words just clutter the Mind Map.

Print Words – Joined up or indistinct writing is more difficult to read.
Use Color to Separate Different Ideas – This will help you to separate ideas where necessary. It also helps you to visualize the Mind Map for recall. Color can help to show the organization of the subject.
Use Symbols and Images – Pictures can help you to remember information more effectively than words, so, where a symbol or picture means something to you, use it. (You can use photo libraries like iStockPhoto to source images inexpensively.)
Using Cross-Linkages – Information in one part of a Mind Map may relate to another part. Here you can draw lines to show the cross-linkages. This helps you to see how one part of the subject affects another.

How to Create a Mind Map

One of the great things about making a mind map is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. You can make it as minimal or artistic as you like—whatever helps you to tap into your creativity and reach your end goal. Generally speaking, here are a few simple steps to get you started:

Write or draw your main idea or problem. This is typically what you’re trying to solve, or a simple starting point for your mind map. For example, if you want to create a social media campaign for an optometrist, you might place “eye doctor” at the center of your mind map.
Add primary branches that stem from your central idea. You can create as many branches as you want, but remember, the more you have, the more creative your ideas will get. Using the eye doctor example from above, your branches might be keywords like “vision,” “glasses,” “contacts,” and “eye exam.”
Add secondary branches that stem from your primary branches. For example, stemming from “glasses,” you might write “sunglasses,” “bifocals,” and “reading glasses.”
Add a third branch. Although you can include as many or as few branches as you want, it’s best to at least try three. That way, your ideas have a chance to stem farther away from your central idea. For example, if you branch off of “sunglasses,” you might think of words like “beach,” “sunshine,” and “summer.” As you can see, these words are very different from the ones you started with.

Just like you can be as creative as you want with the terms or drawings that you include, there is also a variety of media that you can use for your mind map. You can, of course, use a piece of paper and a pencil, but you can also get much more creative. Try a white board if you’re collaborating with a group, or even computer software that allows you to make and share a virtual mind map.

There is also now exciting new technology like Mind Map AR that allows you to create a 3D mind map, making the process even more creative and interactive.
