Kim, I've been meaning to send you a message all week. Mind mapping is wonderful! Over the weekend I was able to do a map of our household finances....a touchy subject given a new wife and 10 months of consecutive unplanned expenses....started off by my son seriously burning himself last year. Up til now, any mention of the finances created a very tense situation, but by mapping it out the resistance to discussion changed. I was able to map it out with major arteries of long term debt, short term recurring, short term nonrecurring, routine medical, emergency medical, etc. It also made it very easy to determine where to concentrate the resources. It is a wonderful method.
Thanks again, Steve T.
