I think we all suffer from mind “full”-ness. We are expected to remember way too much and do way too much for others and ourselves. What for? It’s one thing to challenge yourself to become a better version of who you are, but it’s a whole other thing to expect yourself to be Superman or Superwoman.
How do we simplify our commitments, schedule, thoughts and focus?
A client asked me yesterday for a rubric, or decision making matrix, that will help her gain clarity as to what to say “yes” to and what to say “no” to. While I do offer my clients a somewhat customized version of this tool, once it’s employed, they need to be at peace with the decisions they will make as they empty their mind “full”-ness and become more mindful.
If you choose to let go and purge your mind and journey, you can’t look back. This is what is so beautiful. You decide to look forward and, when you do, all you see are possibilities.
Personal Challenge: Do what you need to do to move from mind “full” to mindful.
