When I think about some of my talents or abilities (aka obsessions & compulsions) there is one thing that comes to mind.
I love to organize. I think I get some kind of high out of organizing something whether that be a cluttered closet, a filing cabinet or my Saturday errands. I LOVE getting organized.
Recently I was thinking about how I even organize my brain.
For example today there was SO MUCH going on at work and I felt like the thoughts in my brain were a little out of control. By the end of the day I had so many thoughts floating around that I didn't even know what I needed to get accomplished. So I proceeded to do what I call a "brain dump."
I got a paper and a pen and wrote down all the thoughts in my head. I listed everything that was on my list of "to do's." I referenced my email for a reminder of to do items and transferred all my many sticky notes to one large consolidated list.
Once on paper it is much easier to prioritize and decide what needs doing first. I like doing this at the end of the day when it feels like my brain has gotten a bit cluttered. Doing a brain dump at the end of the day helps me unwind and have a prioritized list of things to begin with the next day.
So if your feeling a little cluttered up top do a brain dump.
