This is a second time I'm using them on a consistent basis. I think they are speeding up the discovery of my life's important topics tremendously. I can't force it too much though - I can't spend my all time writing mind maps and expect to advance my life just as much. It's more of a tool to arrange life, thoughts, and speed up the important points, ideas, moods about it.
In short, I must live life to make a new mind map.
But, it's an invaluable tool. Whaddya think of it?
