This week is going to be pretty busy, right?
Last week wasn’t much different.
And next week (unless vacation) will be, too.
Does that make you feel overwhelmed?
It might. And it’s also a good thing you’ve stumbled here today.
Today, you’ll be getting a simple way to start creating more clarity in your life.
The numbers are pretty overwhelming if you just stay there. We have something like 5x the amount of data and information coming at us each day than we did in 1985 or so.
To be blunt, the amount coming AT you is not really going to suddenly disappear tomorrow. But rather than let the weigh so heavily each day, start focusing on the parts you DO control.
I talk with clients all the time that are wanting to create some clarity in their life but have no idea how they can possibly add anything else to their schedule right now.
“I’m just too busy.”
(See the reality again above. That’s not what you really control.)
There are a lot of ways to declutter (and create clarity) in your life. We’ll start quickly TODAY with your mental “overhead bin”. Your brain.
Whether you’re aware of it or not, you’re carrying around a TON in your brain right now that you cannot even control or change anymore.
Before you can add new things to your life, you’ll have to first subtract some things.
Here’s what to do:
- Look to see what story or event from the past keeps replaying in your brain that you can no longer fix or change
- Take 5 minutes to write it on a piece of paper
- Cross a line through it as you remind yourself you can no longer fix or carry that
- Rip it up, recycle the paper
- Do this every day for a week
You cannot really have clarity in the present if you continue to keep replaying scenes from the past. Your mental movie screen only has so much room for viewing. Be the Director of yours as you Reclaim Your Life!
