If you've never seen a Brain Map before, these steps may not be clear. For an example, see Figure 7.1, which shows a Brain Map on ways to improve a bed.
As you examine this Brain Map, don't expect to find all the elements placed in a logical way. For instance, I placed the ideas for awakening or helping you sleep under the "sleeping" category because that's where I thought of them. It would have made more sense to put them under the "mattress" category. But remember, it doesn't really matter how you generate ideas, just so you get them out.
