PMA chronicles– the power of the mind!!

So when i started thinking about my PMA i tried out a mindmap. It was terrible i only managed four points!

So i gave up with that! and the last few days have just been consumed with reading papers, losing hope, remotivaing myself, and then reading more papers! So last night i thought 'what the hay lets try mindmapping!' And I have to say i was so shocked!

The map below is literally what i got within ten minutes. Bearing in mind that i was feeling like i hadnteven learnt anything after all my reading. The funny thing is i dont even remember half of these things being in any papers i read.

The mind is more powerful than we know!

So I have come to realise that the whole concept of your brain consuming knowledge and only bringing out it out when you need it is absolutely true! I didnt understand it completey when paul mentioend it in class but i sure do now. This just goes to show that mindmapping is a fantastic tool.

I found it so much better since i had been working on something else for a couple hours prior to this. So if anyone wants to try it maybe clear yor mind with something else beforehand.

i know that this will be so helpful to me in the future not jst for PMA's but for anyotehr projects. necause t really helps you hone down on the things you actually find relevent.

NEXT STEP- trying to make a Mindmap in such a way that you can just write your whole essay through it! maybe not this time but I will be trying it out after Paus workshop for sure!
