Step 3. Now let’s explore this idea. What can it be related to? Is it context? Good!
Move your cursor over the box and choose to create “new child bubble”. Let’s call it “Context”.
What else can be related to your main idea?
Your idea needs to develop and implement over time so clearly you will need a schedule. Make one more child bubble called “Schedule”.
Any idea needs recourses. Create another child bubble called “Recources”
Any child bubble can have its own children so list in the “Recourses” all the sources that will support your idea.

Step 4. Great! How about the other idea that your friend has and that can work very well with yours? Shouldn’t we have it in the picture? Yes, of course.
Move the cursor on your main idea and drag to create “New independent bubble”. Call this “My friend’s idea”. Consult with him to see what are his child bubbles.
