Mind Defragmentation Hacks
We all had the dream if we could just plug our brains into our computers so we can capture all the stuff and manage it neatly.
We can! Maybe not literally, but we are certain about the effectiveness of some steps that we can always take to defrag our mental hard drive.
What is defragging?
Defragmentation is the process of consolidating data on a disk so it works more efficiently. Just like having a stack of documents and you start enter the data and organize it on a server storage so it could be accessible anytime, anywhere.
Well, we don’t take enough time to defrag our brains, and because of that we become anxious or overwhelmed. We begin to have these feelings of missing out things or forgetting something, where they were last time? Who got it there in first place?
Imagine that you can track every single thought you have through its entire timeline.
Studies have proved that dedicating a few minutes of your day to defrag your brain will increase your productivity by 40%
so let’s go through those 3 simple hacks to defrag your mind, and get things done..
1- Question and Identify Necessary Information
Once you correctly identified your main concerns for the next period, start to identify related areas. What information do you need to succeed? Are there any specific attitudes you need to adopt? Are there any important actions you need to perform on a regular basis? Any approaches you need to implement? All these items are part of your main setup.
2- Ignore the Unimportant
It’s not about the excessiveness of the luggage we carry, it all revolves around the way we pack it. Once you’ve distinguished your important thoughts from unimportant ones, you can start packing your necessary information in an organized way, when you can carry as much as you need with minimum storage space.
3- Store all your assets, Minimum Space
The 3rd and last phase of your brain defragmentation process should address exactly the previously asked questions. If you moved all the important stuff closer to your core in previous steps, now you’re going to take the unnecessary bits and pieces and move them far away from your reach; Don’t get rid of them, of course, just offer a quiet space without consuming much of your resourcing and space.
In the end, quieting our brains can seem as if they're not working. The fact that they are just like a hard drives, working most efficiently when you can’t hear the noise of the running processor.
