The title of this blog sounds rather strange. Please bear with me and see this through. I promise you will be glad that you did. First I am going to talk about what 'Brain Dump' is and then how you can apply this to 'Dance Till You FLY! mw System (c) 2014 influenced by Flylady and born from Marilyn's Way that is a page and a group to organization for home and garden. I have been using this technique long before I knew it had an actual name.
What Is A Brain Dump?
It is simply taking all the things that are floating around that overstuffed brain of yours and dump these thoughts on to paper with a pen. Sure, you can type it into your computer but most find it is note as effective. There have been times in my life that I have felt so overwhelmed that I was paralized. The only way I was going to be able to move forward was to pull out my notebook that I can dump thoughts of things I had to do, thoughts of outcomes not yet finalized, thoughts of things I would like to do. This notebook is for my purposes only. It doesn't have to mean anything to anyone else. How you get your thoughts out of your brain and on to paper is your way. Some of it can be doodling, some can be bullets of thoughts. Some can be best explained by writing a story about it.
How Can It Help You To 'Dance Till You FLY! mw?
I have been wanting to answer this question for you for quite some time. I just didn't know how my suggestion would be perceived and if I could create enough excitement for you to give this a try when it comes to taking care of yourself and your home. First, I want you to throw perfectionism and procrastination right out the door. They are not welcomed when it come so to doing a 'Brain Dump'. Now I want you to take your notebook and pen and just start dumping all of the thoughts you have in your head and on to paper in this notebook. Set the timer for 15 minutes. When the fifteen minutes are up, that's it. None of what you just wrote has to make any sense to anyone but you and sometimes there are a few things that don't make sense to you during this session but in due time. Those are called 'aha moments'. Be aware of how you feel after you have done a 15 minute Brain Dump. I will be doing one when I finish this blog because I have so much on my mind that I find I am becoming to feel paralyzed and I want to dance till I fly!
I think this is enough information for you to get started. The next blog will be about what to do about all this information that just came out of your brain and on to the paper of your notebook. All of those thoughts have homes and I will show you where to put them. For now, get your timer, set it for 15 minutes and just start dumping everything you have in your brain and put it in your magical notebook because that is what it is going to become. We will be doing more than just one brain dump. Some feel the need to do it daily for awhile, then weekly, monthly and finally quarterly. By getting these thoughts out of your brain you can focus on the nine habits each day every day as your foundation or core to 'Dance Till You FLY! mw System (c) 2014 and know that all of your other thoughts are in that magical notebook of yours just waiting to be ready for the next dance step of your thoughts!
