The Secret to Unleashing Your Creative Genius
Scientific research shows that our brains like to work using association and visual patterns. So it only makes sense to allow our minds to use these natural methods in the most efficient manner possible.
Mind maps are an ideal tool for brainstorming. They encourage our minds to use the natural process of association. Ideas develop in a more free-form manner; unlike the restrictive linear "laundry list" system most of us have been taught to use.
