Usually, you cannot control the order in which new information on a subject arrives. If you are taking notes, this can result in the notes being less useful than you might wish.

How mind mapping helps you focus[edit]

Learning to listen for the key words and phrases helps you focus on what is important. It keeps your mind from wandering. As you take notes in mind mapping form you can make those notes quickly so you can keep your focus on listening. It also allows you to add a thought you have with a word or two without having to interrupt. Then when it is your turn to speak you can refer to your notes.
