Get “it” out of your head
Write it down
You remember the story of Isaac Newton, right? He was sitting in the shade of an apple tree. Having a nice day. Enjoying the cool breezes. Then, an apple fell on his head. Uh-oh, decision time. Be mad about the bump on his head? Or examine what just happened and write it down? Hmm…what did Mr. Newton decide to do? I’m sure you already know. Or you’ve guessed.
If the brilliant Isaac Newton needed to write it down, you and I should too.
You’re a business owner. And I know you’ve got a lot of stuff in your head. Ideas. Dreams. Plans. Did I mention great ideas? But if you don’t write it down, you might end up stuck. Or worse yet, you might end up forgetting a lot (or all) of that great stuff.
You’ll find out, if you run a business long enough, you just can’t remember everything. And it might be in your personality to wanna try. But I encourage you to discourage that part of you. I know, from experience, when you write it down, you’re much less likely to forget or let your ideas fade away.
Even when you vow to follow through, stress creeps in. Day-to-day tasks pile up. You get too busy. Too tired. And when you least expect it, you’re procrastinating. “I’ll get to that tomorrow.” Sound familiar?
What’s a busy business owner to do?
Make a list. But not just any list. A list that includes only the steps, activities, or tasks that get you closer to your goals. You can accomplish more, and stay on track with those things that are most important to you, with a list.
I know I’ve mentioned it before. And I hammer home the point to my one-on-one clients. But it’s because I know it works, beyond a shadow of a doubt. When you take the (so-called boring) time to write it all down, you’ll begin to focus more on what’s truly important to you. It’s not magic. But it works like magic. Because you won’t be depending on your brain to remember it all. I like to think of it this way. Your brain is for creating…not storage.
