Mind Map Top Tip of the Month
Make sure that you review your Mind Map 10 minutes after first creating it. Psychological research has shown that we forget 80% or the detail of anything we pay attention to (reading a book, watching a presentation, even creating a Mind Map) within 24 hours. So if you leave it a day before reviewing, you are having to re-learn most of the information and will struggle to re-create all the associations. By doing the first review while the memory is still fresh, you reinforce the mental connections and the memory takes longer to decay.
