Day 15: Mindmap
(uptempo electronic music)
This is 28 to Make. I'm Laura McCormick. For this project, we'll be doing a mindmap. What is a mindmap? A mindmap is amazing brainstorming tool. It allows you to visualize your thoughts and ideas. All you need is a pen and paper. You start off by writing the central topic in the middle and circling it, and then you branch out to related words and ideas, and from there, you can keep branching out until your page fills up. Here's one that I did around planning a vacation. Now, you can do it in any size. This is just letter size. So I know I wanted to go on a fun trip, and I branched out to all the things that planning a vacation entails, like do I wanna plan it, do I not wanna plan it and go rogue, do I wanna think up about finances, do I wanna go cheap or expensive, how long do I wanna go, where do I wanna go, and you can also see there's dotted lines between relationships, and patterns start to emerge. Now again, any size. In this one, I added color, and I ...
even drew little pictures. I wanted a pet, and I knew that there were four to choose from in my head, so as I mindmapped them out, it became crystal clear to me that what I wanted was a dog. Come here, boy. Make sure you share it with me with the hashtag 28 to make. Good girl! (uptempo electronic music)
