Below are some tips on how to fully optimize your map in a way that people will appreciate and not criticize.
1. Ask yourself a lot of things.
It is through being intuitive that you learn on how to handle your situation. Ask yourself about the map that you have done. Does the entire topic which is connected with some sub-topics co-relate with each other? Or are there ideas that are not really relevant to what you are trying to convey? Be creative enough to move certain topics and put them in place if things are not making sense any longer. You’ll never know it may just make sense at that angle. This process can increase the completeness and value of your map.
2. Collapse the map.
Don’t tear it all down just collapse its meaning, you have to shatter the contents of your map in order to achieve topmost topics which are considered as the most important ones and are mainly visible. Look at your map in a holistic way including the central theme and its sub-topics. This will trigger a self-explanatory process.
3. Arrange chronologically.
Your primary topics should appear primarily to achieve a logical sequence and logical understanding. If you don’t see things are arranged based on ideas, and then structure your map in a way that will make sense. Don’t leave topics astray around your map.
Remember, as the one projecting the map, you have to have a goal of instilling in the mind of the people who are seeing your mind to see things the way you do because if they are seeing different, then you’re in big trouble.
Furthermore, your mind map should be something that reminds you everything. It should act as a recall instrument and not a thing to ponder on in the long run.
