Have you ever wondered why we still use things like subway maps, despite the fact that we’re still in the middle of a digital revolution? It’s because maps play directly into the way our minds already work. It’s also why techniques like mind mapping are so effective – it’s a great way to break a larger idea, a problem, or a goal down into smaller parts that can then be individually supported by one’s own unique talents. Mind mapping presents the perfect opportunity in taking a complicated idea or problem and breaking it down, organizing, and categorizing it down to its bare essentials so that it can be learned and understood in a far more effective and efficient way.
