It’s the week before Thanksgiving, and I have a feeling that most of our schedules are packed right now. You need to do all the things, but how do you know where to even start?
I have the answer! My brain dump method! It’s only a 4 step process, and super easy!
Grab a notebook and write down every single task that needs to get done. All. of. Them.
Determine which tasks must be done before you go to sleep. Not the tasks that you wish you could get done- only the things that must be done. High-light these tasks. I like to use a fun pink high-lighter because it makes my heart happy, but you do you.
Go back through your high-lighted tasks and rank them in the order that you need to get them done. I personally like to knock out the task that I am least looking forward to first, and then the rest is downhill from there. Does anyone else find extreme satisfaction when you cross a task off you list? It’s the best!
The next day go back through your list with a different colored high-lighter and repeat steps two and three until all tasks have been completed. Sometimes I will just start a new list because I have issues and can’t handle how messy it looks, but go with what works best for you.
There you go! My brain dump method is super simple, but super effective. I am all about simple these days. You could make different lists for work and personal, but I tend to just combine the two. Again- simple is my jam.
Let me know if you have another method that works well for you, or if you have tried the brain dump method!
