Empty your mind: The power of brain dumps

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Why, yes, Dumbledore. I know exactly what you mean when you say you occasionally benefit from emptying your brain of thoughts. I kind of wish I had a Pensieve sometimes.

Last week I did a brain dump. A big one.

I wrote down every single little thing I could think of that I wanted or needed to do. I had just passed March 1 (my deadline for Tell Its Story and 30 Days of Lists) and was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by everything I had been neglecting and putting off in order to have those 2 projects ready.

I realize now I forgot a big chunk.

Even so, this is 9 sheets of paper (1-side only) of TO-DOs to accomplish in the next weeks and months.


Clearly something needs to be done. Either I need to say NO more often, or I need to let go of some of the projects I’ve been wanting to accomplish …. or I need a clone.

sigh ….

Glad to know I’m not the only one who needs a brain dump every once in awhile

    I just did this yesterday. It was only things I wanted to do in the next two days and it was almost a page (single spaced) long. It’s amazing to see everything that’s queuing up in your mind hey?

    WOW! You are a crazy busy girl. Hopefully a lot of this list is not things that you NEED to do. Looks like way too much. Have you thought about typing your list so you could revise it as things are completed, changed, added or cancelled?
