Is your head cluttered with things you need to do? All those mental reminders - don’t forget to pick up Sally’s birthday present; ask Mr. Jones about that e-mail; prepare the invoices - important as they are, they all get in the way of your creativity.
When you unclutter your head, your creativity flows. But how to get rid of those mental To Do items?
My favorite way is to make a list. Write down everything that you need to do—short term and long term. Then let yourself forget them. It’s not that you won’t do them, but your list will be your memory and your brain can simply feel free to focus on other things.
And it’s a quite pleasant high to cross things off the list!Posted by kuri at November 19, 2004 07:41 PM
