Today, and in any given day, we all have only a finite amount of
- energy and
- head space
And, if you spend any of these excessively thinking, doing and reacting to things in the past you significantly reduce the time, energy and head space that can be utilized to focus on today, on the present and creating an awesome future.
So a great idea is to take time to clean out your head space. “Defrag” your hard drive. Imagine your head space clear of:
- Self-doubt: You are worthy of achieving any of the dreams and goals that you have. Believe it.
- Blame: Blame is just an excuse for you not to take responsibility for your own life. Own your life.
- Anger & Jealousy: These serve no purpose, they will only harm you. Let them go.
Get rid of the rubbish that is just sitting there behind the scenes, negatively affecting performance and delivery. Do what you need to do to gain closure, to move on. Trust me, by doing so, you will move forward significantly faster unhindered, being able to maximize your time, energy and head space.
Then, it’s simple maintenance, things that you can do daily to maintain a clear head space:
- Stop procrastinating: It only leaves you playing catch up, frustrated and despondent. Just do it.
- Laugh lots: Even if you don’t feel like it. Laugh lots. Laugh loud. Laugh with others. It clears away the cobwebs and creates a whole new perspective.
- Take control: Focus on what you can change, what you can control – your reactions and your attitude. You cannot change others, you cannot control every situation. Stop trying.
And with a clearer mind you can focus on the positive, not the negative.
- Count your blessings. Begin and end each day being grateful for what you have, for all that you experience.
- Create your dream board. Keep your dreams real, up to date and close. When stress creeps in remember “this too will pass” and focus your mind and energy on your dreams.
Don’t waste your time, energy and headspace reliving yesterday.
Challenge yourself. Clear your head. Re-ignite your energy. Maximize your time.
What will be your first step?
What’s holding you back?
