|Today’s tip: Get it out of your head|
Feel like this week’s going to be a busy one? There is one good way you can improve your output capacity and reduce your stress.
Write everything down.
- This week, make it a point to put all of your plans, ideas, tasks, thoughts, and observations about your work down on paper.
- It’s always a good practice to think with a pen in hand, but this week you should commit yourself to writing it all down, more so than ever before.
- A daily journal is the best tool for this, so keep a paper planner with you at all times.
Writing things down declutters your brain and de-stresses you. You are giving yourself permission to not memorize everything, which enables you to better focus on the task at hand. You will also feel a weight lifted off your shoulders with the confidence that nothing will slip through the cracks.
Make it a point to get it out of your head this week, and please comment and let me know how well it works!
