I love MindManager and I hate my forgetfulness

Follow-up to There is always a way to escape the routine from The URSS Blog

It was a great day and a terrible one at once. Magnificent in the way that I discovered the software MindManager and terrible, because I lost most of the work which I have done today. Good things first, however, MindManager is exactly the tool which I was looking for all the time. I am now able to take notes in a far more efficient way, interlinking different thoughts, working organically. In this sense I am glad that I woke up today.
On the other hand, I was probably too excited and lost not only my USB stick, I forgot it in the Learning Grid, but also most of the work which I had done today. Whether I did not save properly or whether all the data is on this USB stick, I do not know; well, its gone. Luckily it is not assessed work due tomorrow so I learn to be a bit more careful with my work.
Also, Dan being back brought some major motivation, since it is so much nicer if you can communicate with someone about what you are doing. Moreover, joint breaks are far more relaxing than wondering about by yourself.
Here are some impressions of my day:
