Doing Things in 3s
I’ve been re-doing some very big MindMaps I’ve created in MindManager, and it’s doing my head in.
I just can’t seem to look at the MindMap and take in all the information, even though it’s my own map.
So here’s an idea I’ve had. Re-arrange the whole map so there are never more than 3 sub-topics, and then split them into no more than 3 sub-topics and keep drilling down in 3s. It seems to be working well so far. I’ve started with more than 3 Main Topics at the start, but I’ve kept the 3s after that.
It’s something I picked up from a Presentation Skills workshop years ago.
Work in 3s.
Beginning Middle End
Aim to tell the audience 3 things, and have them go away remembering 3 things, and break down the 3 things each into 3 things when you’re explaining the 3 things!»
