Diagrams are an essential tool in any field of work or study as they allow us to organise all our knowledge in a small space. Today we will explain some tricks to to achieve a well thought-out outline with the ideas distributed in the right way..
The fundamental idea of a scheme is that should reflect all desired information at a glance. It should not take more than 5 minutes to consult and understand the essence of the outline. Normally an outline will not be an element that will be used for studying, but will be used to review ideas or to build on in a speech.
In addition to simplicity, a scheme must have a good order. If we do not take this into account, the outline will do us more harm than good. A good order consists of building a hierarchy between the ideas and putting it on paper. For example, we can highlight the most important ideas in a larger font size than the rest of the ideas. You should also use brackets or arrows to show the relationship between ideas.
In addition ideas should be expressed with simplicity (between 1 and 10 words) use large amounts of text. The more text we use, the closer together the ideas will be and the less clear they will be. For example, if we want to make an outline of the evolution of man, it will be enough to put a section with the name of each evolutionary series and in brackets 4 or 5 words with its main characteristics. This way, as soon as we see the name, we will have an idea of what it is.
As you can see, making a scheme is quite simple as long as we follow a good order and a suitable hierarchy. Remember that, as always, you can ask any question through our forum.
