We’re surrounded by constant noise. Audible noise and visual noise… it’s everywhere and it’s cluttering our minds. If you’ve ever found yourself feeling frustrated and irritated by a lack of focus, unable to visualize your goals clearly, I might have just the thing you need:
Imagine taking your notebook and a pen and finding a quiet corner somewhere just to think. This can’t be at your desk with your computer and papers, or with your phone on your person, and not in a crowded cafe. I’m talking about you and a pen and paper and a blank wall, a garden bench, your kitchen table, or the corner of your room sitting on the floor.
Go to this space with a purpose.
Plan to spend this time thinking through what you’re working on. Take short notes about whatever pops into your head. Set a timer. Keep your mind on your projects and the goals you need to meet this day, this week, this month. It’s like an active meditation that gets you recharged, clear-headed, and focused. And it really works!
Giving yourself dedicated quiet space where your purpose is to get clarity and vision does wonders for those of us (and I think there are a lot of you out there) who battle the cluttered mind.
Do you seek out purpose-drive quiet space?
