You don’t have to finish something to get it off your mind. What you do need to do is:
(1) clarify what the final successful outcome is,
(2) decide the very next action required to move toward that outcome, and
(3) put reminders of the outcome and next action in a system you trust.
Until you do those things, your mind still has that job of deciding and remembering and reminding. “In a system you trust” is important–if you know you won’t look at your reminders when you could actually use them, your head will still keep that job.
What is this about?
This is my attic blog. It's an archive of old blog entries and posts on various blogs and blog-like things. When I close a project down, it goes here. This may move, the links aren't permanent, but if you're interested in reading stuff I've written over the years – go nuts!
CAUTION: it's about as well sorted as you'd expect an attic to be.
