A step by step guide goes to reduce the redundant information that takes up headspace
If we look back at our journey over the past five years, reducing clutter in our lives and in our minds was a step by step process. It wasn't always easy for us to keep moving forward on this journey, the easy thing usually is to let the clutter rebuild but we reckon the path would have been easier if someone has given us a route map like this one. 4 sequential steps to reduce mental clutter.
STEP 1: Start with your goals.
Over the years, we have watched eight envy people wiser than us layout their goals with great clarity. Our goals don't always have to be profound live goals hinging upon our family or our careers; they can be practical goals, such as saving money for retirement or becoming the best drummer in the country or training to become a marathon runner, Whatever they might be goals are the foundation of mental decluttering.
STEP 2: Prioritise.
For most of us, if we don't write things down, the chances are hight we will forget that action point. But suppose, you were to say that your goals are not profound but mundane, that you are trying to achieve something as practical as sat, buying a flat or getting a well-paid job or finding a life partner. How should you prioritize? Such that once you have rejected an option, that option never reappears, we need to decide when to stop lo9oking and grab the first heat option which appears thereafter. The answer to these sorts of problems is usually 37 percent.
STEP 3: Use checklists for planning and execution.
A 'do confirm 'checklist allows more freedom to complete tasks from memory before consulting the checklist. Once the task is completed, a checkpoint occurs and at this juncture, the checklist can be consulted to confirm that no tasks have been overlooked. The second type of checklist is 'read-do'kind. These checklists are more like recipes you start by reading each item on the list, then you complete it before moving on.
STEP 4: Reduce the time spent on a smartphone.
Given that many professionals now end up having to do fifty to sixty hours weeks (including commuting time), if over and above that you are spending any more than a couple of hours a day on your smartphone, it will be hard for you to think straight.
Radically reducing the time spent on the phone is the first step toward developing greater clarity of thought. Three different books 'Deep work, Focus, and Peak point in the same direction' are the books content that if you want to come up with simple but powerful insights you have to specialize and focus, focus on deliberative practice, focus on relative thought.
