Y’all, the holiday season is right around the corner and that means that this year is coming to a close. Can you believe we’re so close to 2020!? Part of me is excited for brand spanking new year and the other part of me is a bit anxious because I really don’t have a clear concept of what next year is going to be for me (work life, family life, etc.). But! I know that God is in control and all I can do is trust Him and His plans for my life.
Even though I’m not sure what this next year will bring, there are still things I have some control over and I am determined to do the best I can with what I have! So I’m going to do a bit of prepping and planning so that I can set myself up to do better in 2020. There’s always room for improvement, right? I know I have a lot to work on so I’m starting with an exercise that I think is very foundational – doing a brain dump and setting my life priorities.

Why Do a Brain Dump?
The concept of a brain dump is pretty popular in the planner and productivity circles. It’s a very basic, very effective exercise. It’s a way to combat overwhelm and anxiety as well as get clear on the things that are most important. It’s the best way to get all the information out of your head and on to paper so you can TAKE ACTION on it. One of the worst things we can do to ourselves is go through our days will all the million things in our brain clogging up our creativity, productivity, peace, and sanity.
When To Do a Brain Dump
Brain dumps can be done all throughout the year to clear your brain of clutter and help you get things done but if you really want to prep yourself well for a new year, it’s a great exercise do to before you start setting any goals or resolutions.
Today on the channel, I talk about how I do a brain dump and give you some suggestions on setting life priorities.
