I find this interesting. I was struggling with my !$%*&@? map again yesterday. Peering at the illustration on a huge sheet of A1 paper getting nowhere fast.
Then for no real reason I decided to write up the text by ‘category’ as a word document. Hey presto! All of a sudden certain items jumped out as total nonsense, while with others I could see connections that, counter-intuitively, I hadn’t seen on paper. It sometimes works the other way around too. So if you find your mind is blocked using one medium I seriously suggest you try another.
