Are you looking to free up your mind and energy so that you can be more efficient and productive?
Let’s talk brain dump.
I started using this tool because I found that my mind would often become overwhelmed and bogged down with all the thoughts of my to-do list for the day, week, month, etc.
Instead of taking meaningful action, I found that I was losing energy and becoming distracted by how much I felt like I had to do and all the thoughts swirling around in my head.
In pursuit of freeing up energy and increasing my inspiration, motivation, and productivity, I started doing Brain Dumps, which I initially learned from Dr. John DeMartini’s work.
Here’s how it works…
Pull out a piece of paper.
Dump out ALL your thoughts onto the paper. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Jot down, list or write out everything you have been thinking about or that needs to be done, essentially anything that is taking up space in your mind.
Once you’ve emptied your thoughts onto the paper, next, review the list and see what on the list you can cross off and allow yourself to let go of.
Perhaps it’s thoughts or worries that you have no control over. Since there’s no sense in worrying about something that you can’t do anything about, you might as well cross that off your list and free it from your mind.
Next, after you eliminate the unnecessary stuff, see what on the list you can delegate.
Then, ask yourself what on the list is of the highest priority and urgency? And what on the list can wait?
I like to write a date beside these and schedule them into my calendar. That way, I know when I’ll get to them, and I don’t have to waste my time trying to remember them.
Lastly, focus on the highest priority action steps as they come up in your schedule. Then get into action!
I have been doing this exercise for a few months now, and I have recommended it to several clients.
The truth is when you are a business owner or looking to transition into being an entrepreneur; a million things are going on all at once.
This simple exercise allows you to free up your mind and energy so that you can be more efficient and effective.
I have found that not only are you able to cut down on the amount of time spinning your wheels in an endless loop of thoughts, it also allows you to stop wasting time on the wrong actions, which is priceless!
You can do it once a week. You can do it once a day. You can do it whenever you feel overwhelmed.
If this resonates, try it out and keep me posted on how it goes:)
