Brain Dump, Take Two

Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinby feather

The other day I was talking with some of my biz peeps about my offer and it came out that the term “brain dump” was scaring some people off. It could get too personal and that was scary, or that I might think they were silly if they didn’t have enough to dump, or if it wasn’t big, important stuff. My description wasn’t specific enough so they weren’t sure what, if anything, would be expected of them.

For some, it seemed too broad and therefore overwhelming.

So, here’s what the brain dump, AKA mind decluttering, AKA mental clearing can be used for:

  • I have too many ideas and can’t focus
  • I keep making lists but they’re not helping
  • I get distracted by, um, everything
  • I don’t know what to work on first
  • I don’t have enough time to get my work done
  • I’m afraid to let go of things

Those are all typical problems that people have day to day. Why would you need mind decluttering right now?

  • I’ve been forgetting appointments
  • I’m embarrassed to contact people when I haven’t followed through
  • I frantically look for things that I need right now
  • I’m not ready with what I promised to someone

Mental clutter is stressful. When you’re stressed, you’re not doing your best work.

Clearing your head brings you clarity, focus and calm. You can see how things fit together and what you need to get rid of. A plan becomes clear so you can move forward with confidence. You’re re-energized to get things done because your plan makes sense and is do-able.

These free sessions are ending on Friday, so pick one up now. If you miss out, though, I’m cooking up a new offering; a shorter, more laser-focused version of this.

  1. As having been someone who was doing a “brain dump” on you last week, I wanted to leave and comment and stress how important this is for business owners to do this regularly.

    It’s like if you worked a full 40 hour work week on a very mentally trying job (yes, business running is mentally taxing, even if you think you’re not doing anything productive) and didn’t take the time to shower, to watch tv, to “zone out”–basically cleanse yourself of your thoughts and residue gunk. After a while, you’ll feel tired, less productive, scatterbrained–I could go on. 🙂

    I relate it to having a therapeutic massage for your brain. Let the master declutterer Claire relax your mind and bring some clarity to it.

    So excited you’re doing this! 😀 And am uber curious what your new version of this will be later.

  3. With your explanation and Laura’s I’ve got more of an idea of what a brain dump is. I like the mind decluttering analogy too – a dump at the moment reminds me of the present a horse has left outside my gate! (A horse? I’m in the middle of town, what’s a horse doing walking past my gate?!)

    • Ah, yes, there are unfortunate associations with the word dump! I’m grateful to the Customer Love crew who let me know I needed to describe my offering more clearly. And to rename it. For next time.

  5. Ah, yes! Much clearer now! 🙂
    Thank you for the explanation and the clarification.

    This is definitely relevant for me – will be setting up that appointment presently! 🙂

    And I have some people I can recommend too – will have to send them your way. 🙂

  7. Hi, Birdy,
    You squeaked in, but the sessions in their present incarnation are over. I’ve learned a lot from doing them and am excited about what I’ll be offering next, so stay tuned!
