Holy Sht Batman!

I don't know about you but sometimes life can really throw shit at you and if you're not careful it can knock you on your arse real quick.

I am a creature of habit. I like to say I don't mind change but if I'm really honest here, I can be really stubborn and resistant to it.

The problem with that is - to move forward and and improve in your business, things have to change. They need to improve.

One of the hardest things for me is starting new 'good' habits.

That's why I am quite surprised that I am on day 10 of a new habit I started.

A friend of mine was telling me about something called Artist Pages. Basically what you do is you write in a journal every day.

You take a few minutes each morning to compose yourself or meditate or whatever you do. For me it's get that first cup of coffee.

Then you just write, a literal 'brain dump'. You don't think about what you will write, you just write each and every thought that comes into your head until you have filled 3 pages.

You even write those silly thoughts like 'I don't know what to write' !

And guess what? It friggin works!

Usually by page 3 I have figured out my plan for the day and even sometimes come up with some pretty good ideas to implement.

Give it a try and let me know how it is working for you.

This sounds incredible. There was something in a business class that I took last year that was very similar to this.

I carry a small notebook with me at all times. I can get easily distracted by "shiny" objects and end up going down a lot of wormholes. With my little notebook, the shiny object gets written down for later research and I can stay focused on my current task. Then , each morning I start by filtering my brain dump from the day before, putting the legit items on the day's to do list, everything else is either earmarked for a later date or simply trashed. I definitely agree that starting the day by organizing it is the way to go!
