Studies have shown that three-quarters of our time is spent retrieving information. And it’s seriously diminishing our concentration. When important information is spread across a variety of different tools and programmes it makes it tough to get things done. The truth is, when our attention is scattered we often lose sight of our end goal. Focus can be the difference between success and failure, but luckily we’re here to help improve yours.
Mind Mapping will let you cut through the noise and give you the freedom to think. In a tool like iMindMap, you’ll be able to tidy up cluttered information and increase your concentration. Below, we’ve noted down our top tips to reclaim your focus. Take a look and put them into practice by downloading our free 7-day trial today.
Information can be overwhelming. When we experience information overload, our brains become fatigued and we end up being more forgetful – neither of which is ideal. In your Mind Map, break down large amounts of information into bite-sized chunks by using keywords. This will condense your information into a more manageable load. Cut through the noise and use filters to only see what’s important to you right now. By capturing the most crucial details, you won’t get flustered by what requires your attention, and stay focused on the task at hand.
No matter how large a project or task, iMindMap will help to give you a clear understanding of any topic. A Mind Map gives information in a way that appeals to your brain, helping to present even the most complex of information in a simple form. Colour code branches to hone in on what you need to know, not what’s nice to know. Use icons, such as flags, to organise and prioritise important text. Use relationship arrows to highlight relationships between similar topics. By maintaining a clear and structured Mind Map, struggling to get your head around dense topics will be a thing of the past.
A Mind Map presents information in a visual and appealing way, encouraging you to draw out creative solutions and focus on the problem at hand. With its radiating layout, a Mind Map mimics the natural way your brain processes information. Did you know that Mind Maps mirror our natural thought pattern? With this in mind, customise your Mind Map in a way that’s unique to you. Make your Mind Map memorable by uploading images to add context to keywords. You can attach files and build a hub of resources that’s ready when you need it. In return, your Mind Map will encourage you to be more creative, improve your recall ability and help solve more problems effectively.
