I am in Need of a Mind Dump!
Do you ever find that your head feels like it’s holding so much information that it feels like it is going to explode?
Are you so busy building and running your business that you feel so overwhelmed that you can’t think straight?
Is your mind just jam packed with everything you have to do, need to do, want to do, and everything you’ve been learning?
Mine definitely is!
And, if you’ve answered yes to any of these questions…..then read on!
These are very common thoughts and feelings that entrepreneurs (and others) experience on a daily basis. The brain can only hold so much information before the doors close and won’t let anything new in.
I am here to help you out! I have recently learned of a fun, easy and effective solution to this problem. It is called the Mind Dump. It was created by the founder and leader of The Ultimate Game of Life, Jim Bunch.
Below is his explanation and presentation of the Mind Dump.
Simply explained, you’ll feel more refreshed (less stressed!) and be able to get more focus once you organize all the “stuff” you have bouncing around in your brain. So, take out a pen and paper and write down everything you can come up with that you have on your mind. Write it ALL down; every little or big thing you’re thinking about whether its to stop at the store to pick up a gallon of milk, to return a phone call, pick a color to paint the spare bedroom, go to the gym, get a haircut, finish a project, etc. It is the process of taking the intangible (ideas in your head) and turning it into the tangible; the invisible into the visible.
Here are the steps:
1- write everything down that is on your mind; floating around in your brain
2- next to each item, label them
goals: an outcome you want to achieve such as “get organized”
projects: something that has steps such as this “mind dump”
actions: something that can be checked off easily such as “calling so & so back”
3- prioritize and organize your list so that you can complete or take care of some if not all of the items!
I have tried this many times, and have found that it definitely works. It always leaves me feeling lighter, more focused and motivated.
