A visual of mindmaps and taking notes
Have you ever thought what it would be like to map out your thoughts and see what the results would be?
Taking notes and mindmaps is a great way to make sense of how ideas come to you and how more so you can create ideas from notes you’ve taken on a variety of subjects that you came across in any given moment throughout the day.
Taking notes is more or less observations of information and releasing it into a mindmap so you can keep your mind clear and focused that way information doesn’t become overload.
When you take notes, they come in different degrees of understanding.
Imagination, Information, Insight and Inspiration
The reason I myself have chosen to break them into what I call mind containers is because, sometimes I come across information that I need to keep on file, but just keeping it on file isn’t enough, there has to be a reason why.
The reason then becomes an information note, and i attach a link to the information regardless if it’s a websie, pdf, etc. and a reason why this is a note.
In the imagination slot, is where I place notes that pertain to the big picture, a vision that i am trying to piece together, it’s kind of like finding a piece of the puzzle, and thus i put this under the imaginaiton container.
Inspiration is when we have an intuitive reaction to a thought, this then would allow you to put it under the inspiration container.
and finally an insight note, most of the time are random thoughts that come to us when we have learned something new, this then goes under the insight slot.
In essence what you are doing is caputuring thoughts and gatherng them into a mindmap where then the process of relations happens, sometimes an idea can be generated from two different notes that come together to create an idea.
This is a great way to play with your thoughts, to see what can come from them, and how you can generate new ideas, Make it a way to see that note taking can truly be easy on you and it’s a fun way to generate new ideas.
