The ultimate brain dump.
When the pressure is on, I find the easiest way to gain clarity is to just write own each and every task that needs to get done. From paying the electricity bill to client work. It all matters as it all adds stress.
Then I am able to quickly evaluate what is important and what isn’t. A simple activity that you don’t need to do day to day but when the crunch on this simple task helps get the stress out of your mind and onto paper.
