Mind Mapping

Map the structure and linkages between your related factors.

A Mind Map is a pictorial method to represent information that radiates from a central node.

To create a Mind Map:

Step 1:  Write a concise heading for the overall theme in the center of a sheet of paper.

Step 2:  For each major sub-topic start a new major branch from the central theme and label it.

Step 3:  Carry on in this way for ever finer sub-branches.

Step 4:  It may be appropriate to put an item in more than one place or to cross-link it to several other items.

Step 5:  To differentiate items use a variety of fonts, colors, symbols, etc.
