Design Thinking: Mind Maps

So I just wrote out a full blog post and it disappeared. It’s not in my drafts and I’m starting over. 

I learned about mind maps in high school. We used it for small projects. After reading “creative Conficence”, I saw that they revisited this tool. 

It’s often used to expound on a topic. Typically you have one main topic in the center. Then you branch off with sub topics. I did this for a writing project. 

There are tools around the web to create one but it’s quick and easiest with pen and paper. 

So he next time you have a project and you aren’t sure where to start use a mind map and do a brain dump of everything you know on the topic. Then go back and organize it.
