I’m in Need of a Mind Dump!

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.

  12. keanera8 says:

    Can I do this any time I want? like Can I do it everyday or something?Another thing, can I do this not all at the same time? Like I was doing step 2 but I got interrupted and I had to go out can I just come back and just do step 3 like that or should i start over again?

    Hey there! Can you please help? I read your title and it says”How to Foucus your mind” at one point but every time I try mentally my brain feels so weird like its being tickled and then I feel terrible pain in my body,and my eyes,hand, and legs tighten up. If you know about this can you please help? THANK YOU \(^•^)/

  45. wikitiki10 says:

    I do too… what I find that helps is to be aware of your 5 senses rather than thoughts. Just transfer the energy powering your thoughts and pump it into your senses. I think clarity of mind correlates to clarity of perception and level of awareness

    Thank you so much for this. Now that I have everything organized i realize how much i have to do; however, I feel like it is finally manageable. Before it was a constant pressure floating around in my mind; now I understand what my ultimate goals are and how I am going to achieve them. This mind dump can work for day to day activities as well as overwhelming, distant stresses. Again, I really appreciate the help. Time to get started on my list 🙂

I’m actually very self disciplined – I don’t drink, smoke, my diet is extremely healthy, I don’t eat refined sugar or junk food, I have a 1st class degree, I workout 5 times a week, I’m self employed…so who are you to tell me I have no self discipline? You could apply your logic to a cripple who has no control over their legs.

  94. 1mitim1 says:

    I used to be in the habit of writing things down at night (when my mind is most active-it was the only way I could go to sleep, literally) in order to accomplish things the next day. I somehow got out of the habit. I can wake up in the morning and literally not remember what seemed so urgent the night before. I’m an artist that is just starting to create again (have other obligations) and trying to focus. Thank you for bringing more positive energy into the world-beautiful! Trish

    Hey Jim I really enjoyed your video. I found it very helpful. When I did
    the mind dump though I found 2 categories that weren’t covered by
    G.P.A.H… The first was Stress, while accumulating all of the other things
    can cause stress sometimes I had other things that I had no control over
    causing stress. Also I had Ideas, which didn’t really fit into the other
    categories. For example, If someone has an idea about moving to California
    but doesn’t really need to make it happen. Or an invention or something.
    Just thought I would share.

    Computer CPU’s perform parallel processing.
    The human minds can only series process. Intelligent people attempt to
    splice tasks which is often necessary through the day – because the human
    mind cannot parallel process.

    The human mind handles sequential or series processing. One at a time.

    In life we are forced to splice our activities and even the splice time
    has to be prioritized.

    But in those prioritized splices, we tend to not include (health, exercise,
    nutrition, sleep, and family and social) which are really in the high
    priority realm (NOT HABBITS), but (NECESSITIES FOR SUCCESS).

    This video post is not very helpful because you should write down your
    goals using MS Excel and make a column to set a priority and another
    column for due date – because priorities and dates will change. Stay away
    from the waste and non-green use of paper. Save the rain forest.

    Always make time to do some of the things that you enjoy but choose the
    things that you can share with your family like boating, dirt-bike, hiking,
    fishing, biking… and you do see the advantage of choosing athletic social
    activities.

  153. DarkComputerGirl says:

    This did not help me.
    This just stressed me out more.
    1) All of my stuff are projects
    2)They’re all of equal importance
    3) This just made everything worse because I realized just how MUCH crap I
    have to do!
