You may wish to help friends or colleagues analyse themselves, perhaps someone who has never done a Mind Map before. In such cases you can follow the same four stages described earlier (pages 177-8), the only difference being that, rather than analysing yourself, you become a scribe for someone else.
Your friend or colleague can describe his or her central image while you draw it. He or she can then dictate all the thoughts, feelings and ideas that come to mind, while you write them down as a quick-fire Mind Map burst. You will probably need to help your friend or colleague find suitable Basic Ordering i Ideas. You can then draw a comprehensive Mind Map incorporating everything that he or she has said, after which the analysis can be done either in private or, where appropriate, together.

The pace and intensity of our lives, both at work and at home, leave several of us feeling like a person riding a frantically galloping horse. Our day-to-day incessant busyness too much to do and not enough time; the pressure to produce and check off items on our to-do list by each day’s end seems to decide the direction and quality of our existence for us.
