I realized that I store a lot of information in my brain which can sometimes make planning difficult. Then I read that your brain is for thinking not storing! So using one of the new notebooks I got from target (post on those coming soon) I decided to use it as my brain dumping notebook.
Now what is a brain dump?
A brain dump (sometimes spelled braindump, or brain–dump) is a complete transfer of accessible knowledge about a particular subject from your brain to some other storage medium, such as paper or your computer’s hard drive
How do I brain dump? My concept is very easy. Just get everything out of my head and onto paper so my head is clear for more ideas here is what I do
- Date the page
- Start writing everything in my head down, no matter what it is
- After I’m done go through each list and find alike items
- I put alike items into category i.e. planner, home, personal, kids, husband ect
- I then put them into my planner spreading them out over different days
Thats it! I didn’t know that brain dumping would be such a relief for me, but it is! Everyone should brain dump whether you plan or not, just get everything out of your head. You’ll feel a lot better afterwards 🙂
