THE MIND MAP - Start with a blank sheet of paper. - Write the topic and draw a circle around it in the middle of the page. - Before you start, get into a mental state of spontaneity. You need to write fast, do not let your pen stop. Do not correct what you write, simply write fast. Write whatever comes to mind when you think about the subject. Try to fill the page with ideas. - Set a limit of five minutes. Time yourself. - Then start. Write your ideas using circles, arrows, connection lines; use any shape you think fits your purpose. - Do not judge what you write. Do not worry about how neat your page may look. - When the five minutes are over, drop your pen and look at what you have written. Normally the ideas will jump at you. You can use colors to connect your ideas. - Identify the three or four key points in your presentation. Suddenly you will have the feeling that you know how to go forward.
