Today was an extremely dull yet reflective day for me. I went through all my stored boxes and got rid of all the shit that was meaningless and archived the important items for reflection or resources. Everything from old bank statements, tax documents, old pictures, notes from old friends, cds… all that type of shit. The reason I chose to do this today was because I was reviewing the GTD lessons by Tiago Forte and he mentioned something that stuck with me.He said that our brains acted like the RAM of a computer. Each task or thing that we were storing acted like an open app or program slowing our mind down. I was a bit reluctant to believe this at first glance but I’ll be damned that if I didn’t feel a HUGE weight lifted the second I cleaned up my open loops. I felt lighter and more prepared for next time that creativity struck. Don’t believe me? Go clean out your email inbox… or sort through your closet and get rid of the clothes you never wear and keep only the things that are necessary! Let me know how it goes. Though this process is tedious you have to close out of those open apps in order for your computer to run smoother!
