In the same way as Mind Mapping represents a large leap from standard linear note-taking, the Mind Map diary or Universal Personal Organiser (UPO) (see page 310) is far more efficient and effective than a standard diary.
As well as the cortical skills used in traditional diaries (words, numbers, lists, sequence and order), the Mind Map diary incorporates colour, imagery, symbols, codes, humour, daydream, gestalt (wholeness), dimension, association and visual rhythm.
By giving you a true and full reflection of your brain, the Mind Map diary enables you to operate in all three spatial dimensions, as well as those of colour and time. The Mind Map diary thus becomes not only a rime-management system but also a self and /z/e-management system.
