Time to take a Clarity Break


Hey friends

How often do you find yourself working in your business rather than in your business? Or feel as if life is just passing you by because you're too busy with, well life?

I've felt this way for the last couple of months. Until last week, when I was introduced to taking a Clarity Break.

Taking a Clarity Break is pretty simple. You, a pen and a piece of paper at a regularly scheduled time every day, week, or month, somewhere where you won't be disturbed.

Then you sit and wait. Before long, you will have some profound insights and ideas that will help you gain clarity and find new ways to move forward at work, in your business, and in life.

I had my first Clarity Break last week and came up with 30+ ideas for my business in 45 minutes. This week I reflected on some challenges I was facing and came up with my next actionable steps.

Trust me, if you're feeling overwhelmed, lacking creativity or looking for new ideas, try taking a Clarity Break. You'll be amazed at how useful it will be.

Tweet me once you've taken your first Clarity Break and let me know if it worked for you.

Enjoy your weekly dose of marginal gains!

How hard should I push myself? (7min)

It’s a question I often ask myself. I bet you do too. Do you go all out to achieve the goals and targets that you've set for yourself, or are you going to be kinder to yourself and ease up? Is pushing yourself a drive for something that you are missing or are you just being lazy?

Tech: I’ve just started to use Todoist as my personal Task Management app. I’ve been using Google Tasks (to basic) Apple Reminders (not enough integration) recently and as part of implementing my GTD system (Getting Things Done), I wanted a Task Management app with more features and integration.

Getting started with Todoist is FREE. The premium paln is also super reasonable.

A noteable mention for TickTick -  also super powerful to use.
