A slightly different medium for sweeping your mind

Having said that - I do like to make sure I fill in the A3 sheet, so it does push me to think deeper and wider about what's on my mind - if I can hit a full side of A3 (in little boxes or bubbles) then i consider it to be a successful mindsweep.
Of course - I then look at it and think "I'm never going to have time for all of this"...
I did one before Christmas, and one of my colleagues chuckled at the amount I had put down - before admitting she probably could fill in 2 sheets with everything she had going on.
Go with what works for you - but I can definitely plug the therapeutic effect of a mindsweep!
