A Lotus Blossom map can help you to brainstorm and think about a broad collection of ideas and potential solutions to your challenges. Here’s how to use this ideation technique to solve your creative challenges or problems.
One of the problems with the way we think is that it tends to be based heavily upon problems and challenges we have faced in the past. We tend to focus on something that has worked before for us, and settle on the first seemingly good idea that pops into our minds. As a result, we tend to grab at a narrow range of ideas, and stick with them until they’re proven wrong – not a very good survival skill for today’s climate of discontinuous, accelerating change.
A Lotus Blossom map can help you to brainstorm and think about a much broader collection of ideas and potential solutions to your challenges. It’s an excellent lateral thinking tool!
In this latest Mind Mapping Insider report, I explain how to brainstorm using this unique visual format, which is very similar to mind mapping. I even provide a full-color template for this exercise, along with a filled-out example to help you get started exploring your unique possibilities, opportunities and ideas. I created these diagrams from scratch just for my members, because I couldn’t find good enough examples online, and improved upon a diagram I found in a creativity book to make it easier to use.
The special report that accompanies these diagrams explains, step by step, how to use this brainstorming technique – illustrated visually, of course. Please click on the links below to expand your thinking today.
