Mind Mapping for memory and creativity

Hay Mind MapLast month's newsletter described how Mind Maps can help anyone to make the best use of their memories. I use them a lot for this purpose, and am currently creating some Mind Maps to help me recall the best bits of the talks and films I went to at last week’s Hay Festival. If I don’t do this, all the things I learned and enjoyed will quickly get lost as a mass of new information comes in through this week’s experiences. I made this Mind Map to remind my of Claire Tomalin's fascinating talk about her biography of Charles Dickens.

With a bit of practice, anyone can use Mind Maps to recall information from presentations, books, films, newspapers, journals, academic papers, minutes and reports. You’ll have all sorts of information at your fingertips: numbers, names facts – the list is endless!
