Taking advantage of your brains hidden powers by performing a weekly “brain dump” to get rid of information that is no longer needed. It’s been proven that mental lists have a tendency to distract you and decrease your productivity. Make more room in your brain for much needed information and get rid of things that are no longer needed.

Key Takeaways:

  • Keeping everything you need to know neatly packed away in your head is a smart way to run your life.
  • The reality is that mental lists distract you from other, more productive uses of your brain like solving problems.
  • Instead, Shafer recommends doing a brain dump—getting workflow, ideas, commitments, and to-do lists out of your head and onto a physical list and calendar.

“Once a week, set aside a half hour and write or type all the loose thoughts in your brain about what you have to do or need to remember.”
