Slowing Down!

Slowing down would appear to be a strange thing to do right now. My head is spinning with all the different things I want to do and try, but instead of rushing in like I normally would, I’m going to step back and assess and meditate. Does that sound crazy to you? I don’t know how it sounds, but whenever I think about it my mind goes into panic mode thinking, ‘you can’t slow down, you’ll never get anything done!’

So I think the first thing I have to do is a brain dump! Have you ever done one of those? You take a lot of small pieces of paper and write down all the things in your head, one thing per piece of paper, then you start to categorise and organise the pieces of paper. One pile for urgent stuff, one pile for regular stuff, one pile for mini projects, one pile for big projects etc – you get the idea?

The next stage is to schedule and organise the piles. It might sound like an awful lot of work, but surprisingly it doesn’t usually take that long and I can guarantee that by the end of it you will have a clear head and a new sense of purpose.

So I’m off to give it a try!
