i believe our brains should be used not for storing information, but for thinking.
so from time to time, i write out a list of things i need to unload from my brain. i did that this afternoon as i was sitting in my happy place – at a beach, watching surfers. usually i label this my brain dump. but this time i entitled the page “things i’ve been procrastinating on” with two columns on the page. on the left side, i wrote down the list of things. on the right, i wrote down the real why i hadn’t done those things.
it certainly was a very interesting exercise, and i was actually quite amazed to see the reasons written out. and question whether any of these are actually valid.
lemme know what you come up with!
