Get Clarity with Your Goals - Clean Slate Exercise
Posted by Lucy Kovalova-Woods on Mar 16th 2023
Today, anyone can use various tools and exercises to manage time, optimize processes, and increase productivity. Today I want to talk to you about a time when you felt completely overwhelmed.
Being overwhelmed depletes your productivity so fast that you can't realize what has just happened. It's that strange feeling 'ah, I can't complete this,' 'it's all too much,' and we slide into 'I'll do it later and 'I'm too tired.'
What if you could start over? Well, that is the point of the exercise I want to bring to your attention today – a clean slate exercise. And it is straightforward and very effective. I use it myself and recommend it to others too.
What do you do? It is effortless. Take notes. On each sticky note, write down the project, the task you have on your list, and things you need/have planned to do this month.
Place each sticky note on the wall. Sit down and look at all of this. It may feel intense. At this point, you will begin to see what slows your productivity. And then - just as you are reorganizing those things that matter most, you will have clarity. No more chaos, no more overload!
Now you will still need some of those things done today, right? So pick up only three sticky notes and put them back, this time in order, and estimate the time. Then, do the same with the rest, adding it every next day and completing previous tasks.
Why does it work? Because imagery works well. When you see that chaos is now organized, your brain goes, 'Yowza! Finally!' When it gets back to stability with no heavy weight on it, it is easier to see which tasks are the top priority, which can be postponed, how to plan them more effectively, and, eventually, you will also learn how to delegate some of them or get rid of things that are less important and that don't contribute to moving you closer to your dreams and goals.
