I use Omnifocus. I have a folder for each Area of focus and the projects go inside that folder. That way during review I can tell if I am neglecting an area and see what I need to adjust in other areas to put some effort there.

Where I fall down a bit is the middle levels of goals. Main reason is that my projects tend to focus on goals more than most and my projects can span years or decades. I do keep some of the goals in other DEVONThink notes but not as many as I should. Improving my goal management is an area I am focusing on this year.
I've tried mind-mapping and don't like it. I just don't think that way. I have used Scapple as a simple mind map tool and it's functional but that is so foreign to how I think that I rarely use it. What I do have for a couple of major areas, like the Manage our Farm Sustainably and Manage our Finances AOFs is a separate LibreOffice document that lists various goals by years and then in my history document I track whether I accomplished those goals or not. I also use Aeon Timeline as a way to track some key goals that are time dependent. I'm using it more as a historical reference as well though.
