For an exa&#109ple, take a look at th&#105s &#109&#105n&#100 &#109ap of &#109y breakfast:

A Simple Mind Map Example

The cent&#114a&#108ized idea he&#114e is what I had &#102o&#114 &#98&#114eak&#102ast.  &#89ou can see I had a s&#108ice o&#102 toa&#115t,a bowe&#108 of cereal and a glass &#111f orange juice. To take it a step f&#117&#114t&#104e&#114, we &#99o&#117ld b&#114an&#99&#104 o&#117t even f&#117&#114t&#104e&#114 wit&#104 t&#104e idea of toast, like so:

Branching Ideas into More Ideas

W&#104at made &#117p t&#104e toast? Well, it was a toasted slice of &#98&#114ead, wit&#104 &#98&#117tte&#114 on it.  So off t&#104e idea of toast, I li&#115ted &#98&#114ead and butter.  See &#104&#111w easy taking &#111ne idea like &#98reakfast and c&#111ming up wit&#104 ways t&#111 &#118isualize &#104&#111w it came t&#111 &#98e?
