Taking the Mind Map a stage further

Use a further ten minutes or so to take your Success Mind Map a stage further by drawing sub-branches from each main branch and adding greater detail. There’s no limit on how many sub-branches you can add to each main branch. Just put them wherever further associations arise and extend the Mind Map accordingly.

You can:

In Chapter 4 I explain just how people think. One feature of our brain is that it thinks by association and by leaps and bounds. You can make use of these characteristics with Mind Mapping by extending your thoughts at a point in the Mind Map where they’re best suited.

Now start the exercise and come back to the book after about ten minutes.

Figure 1-3 contains my own example for this exercise.
