Regarding Carie Harling’s YouTube video “The whys and hows of a Brain Dump”
I have something similar especially for my Life Mapping Related things, to-dos and ideas.
Last month, I realized there were more and more things and I started forget what I should do and new ideas kept popping out and I did feel unnecessary panic. So I started to use my ring binder backwards to write down anything LM (Life Mapping) related.
My rules to use my “Brain Dump List”-
1- use my ring binder backwards for Brain Dump List
2- no sequence. Just write down one by one when things and ideas popup;
3- mark deadline at the front of each list. Leave blank if it dose not have deadline
4- use FriXion highlighter to highlight the lists that I must finish this month. Erase the highlight and wipe off the list when done
5- No mix of other stuffs that are not LM related
This method is more efficient than any to-do list. By the way, I still have short everyday to-do lists for me to concentrate.
