It’s been five years since I was diagnosed with neurodegenerative disease (Parkinsonism; differential diagnosis between PSP and FTD; currently it looks like I have features of both these frontotemporal lobar degeneration syndromes which occur in virtually identical areas in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain).
In those five years, I have adopted Buzan organic mind mapping as the primary way that I think, evaluate, communicate professionally, and set up even recovery “databases” so I can remember better both events and knowledge from my earlier career and things that happened earlier today. When I am not in front of a computer, tablet, or smart phone running ThinkBuzan’s iMindMap computer implementation of Buzan’s work, I am often using a small pocket paper notebook and a fountain pen to capture my thoughts and feelings and to then organize them.
So how does this make me feel? Look at this mind map to see my experience. Click on the map to expand its size.
Organic mind mapping has been an integral part of my life since 2011.
