My way of organizing thoughts

list

I’m pretty sure that this happens to  everyone of us once in a while – just too many thoughts running around in the mind simultaneously. Can’t understand where one ends and another starts. Or you happen to catch yourself in the middle of the thought wandering why I’m even thinking about it when I should do something else instead.

Well, I have found an excellent way how to systemize all these thoughts, at least for me. And I’ve been doing it for several years now. Whenever I get the feeling that I need some clarity in my mind I’ll just open Word (or something similar) on my laptop or grab a pen and a notebook and just start writing everything down. It doesn’t matter in what order, are they sentences, just single words, random ideas or whatever. I’ll just write everything down and wont stop before I have no ideas left (for that moment at least 🙂 ). Doing this allows me to make room in my head in order to see the full picture and analyze what thoughts are important and which I should discard. From some of them bigger ideas or goals emerge, some I will form to actions and quite often many will be left just there… on the paper, but not in my head anymore clearing way to more important things. Of course it’s not like on/off button but it really helps. I call them “brainstorms” and I have dozens and dozens of these kind of files. It’s also interesting to look back sometimes and see what were my ideas a year ago and what has become of them since then.

Different activities and senses (writing, reading, hearing and so on) work differently on people but if you like to write things through as I do I would recommend to try something similar. There are probably millions of people worldwide advising to do the same thing (basically like writing a diary) but as usual getting to the actions is sometimes difficult.

One other thing that I started to do last year is that every morning I write down to my notebook the main activities that I have to do during the day. Every once in a while I look at them, make some comments, mark what I have already done and if in the evening there’s something that I missed I carry it over to the next days to come. Once again a good way to keep things focused! And I really like the writing on my notebook, I bought it right away when I saw it!

Synchronizing brainwaves

We’ve been traveling through SE Asia with Anna already for 4,5 months by now. Which means we’ve been together for 24 hours with a few exceptions for 4,5 months :). It has been the greatest adventure of our lives and we’re both extremely grateful for it! During this time we’ve definitely grown more together and I mean it in a very good way but lately we have discovered one more aspect of our everyday lives. It seems that quite often we find ourselves thinking about the same thing. Or starting doing the same thing at the same time without prior agreement. Or one second Anna starts talking about coffee when a split second ago I had an idea of making coffee. Or at the same time when I’m saying shall we go to the beach she says let’s go to the beach. And so on and so on :). These are just some examples but it seems that they are starting to occur more often. Of course in some way they can be explained by the same traditions we have developed on our journey and there are just some things that we like to do quite regularly. But on the other hand it really seems that sometimes our thoughts or brainwaves are somehow connected. Almost like a scientific research but it’s really fun 🙂
