Being unfocused can feel par for the course in our busy and always-connected lives, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s one way to clear your mind and up your productivity.
As a business executive or CEO, it feels like you have about 1000 things rattling around in your brain.
Half-baked ideas, running to-do lists, and seemingly never-ending conversations to have and follow up on are very real requirements of your role.
When you sit down with the intention of being productive and crossing off some of those items in your mental checklist, you have a hard time focusing on the task at hand.
This stuff floating around your brain is called cognitive overload or mind clutter and it decreases productivity and destroys creativity.
In this video, I talk all about David Allen’s approach to clearing your mind of this mental clutter. His method is called a mindsweep. It takes between 10-15 minutes and can do wonders for your ability to get things done.
If you want to learn more about the details of doing a mindsweep, watch the video or check out the article I recently wrote about doing a mind sweep on inc.com.
Freeing up space in your mind allows creative juices to flow more freely and enables you to focus because you’re not wasting that energy remembering everything else you have to do later today or next week.
Are you finding it difficult to focus?
We live fast-paced lives and they’re getting faster by the day! Let’s set up a call to discuss how implementing a mind sweep into your daily or weekly routine could help you cope with everything on your plate.

I’ll end with one of my favorites quotes about productivity from another famous Bruce…
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done” - Bruce Lee
