How and Why to Create a Mind Map

How to create a mind map: It’s not enough to simply learn information and stow it away. For that information to be truly useful, we must be able to bring it forth when we need it and apply it.

Doug Andrew shares the example of one of his mentors, Marshall Thurber who passed the California State Bar Exam in the 1970s with the highest score to that point–without having ever gone to law school or read a single law book. His roommate was a law student and he was simply trying to help him prepare for his upcoming bar exam.

The Secret to Thurber’s success was that he learned how to create mind maps that helped him commit what he studied to long-term memory for recall purposes. This method can be applied to our own lives when it comes to learning and applying knowledge that helps us achieve our own goals.


The mentors who helped to shape Marshall Thurber’s thinking were two well-known and highly respected thought leaders named Buckminster Fuller and Dr. Edward Deming. These men have helped countless people and companies become better managers of their time, efforts and resources.

If we were to sum up management in a single word, it would be “predictability.”
