Information overload, with everything happening in life, it can lead to a disorganized mind. It’s something I’ve been thinking about quite a bit. I’ve noticed it impacting me whenever I’m not on deadline.
Deadlines are great. They keep you focused and give you direction. Even self-imposed deadlines work. Sometimes, and for me it’s worst when business is slow, so many thoughts and potential ideas are afloat that the mind is overloaded. I know. That seems counter-intuitive, but the problem lies with so many possibilities that the mind becomes cluttered and instead of achieving the goals spelled out in one of these ideas, nothing at all gets accomplished.
That’s a terrible place to be for a freelancer. So, I’ve been researching some techniques to combat a cluttered mind. I’d like to share what I’ve found. Here are some links that you might find useful whenever you feel it necessary to clear your mind.
If you suffer from mental clutter, hopefully one of these resources will help you deal with your own disorganized mind.
