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.
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?
