Here is another video of the process of developing a mind map. This map presents positive outcomes I have observed in MYSELF (no, not you or you or you … ME only). Of course mind maps may work as well for you as me but I have no ways of knowing that in advance.
This first video shows the first 34:32 minutes of the mind mapping condensed through time lapsing so that 8 minutes is shown as 1 minute.
And then … the dreaded computer freeze (yes Virginia, even MacBooks freeze). I rebooted, turned the computer off, watched TV, went to bed, got up, did other stuff all day, and now am coming back to this map at 5 PM the next day.
I was able to restart myself by spending a couple of minutes scanning the half-completed map and then continuing. I did not try to recreate the ideas of the prior day as I had all of them simultaneously in front of me. Notice that I skip to sections and expand them until the total seems to work.
Here is the additional 26:34 minutes of effort to complete the map. Or, in total about an hour.
And here is the final static mind map.
Good things have happened for me as a consequence of using mind mapping to fight back against dementia.
