Ever look through a dirty lens?

Your immediate reaction is to clean the lens so you can focus, right?

With that in mind, let’s apply that concept to life in general.┬áIt’s hard to see through the lens of life when the chaos (internally and/or externally) is making it impossible to focus?

How do you clean your lens?

I write everything that’s blurring my vision (pen + paper, notes app, etc). I feel lighter just from writing everything down. Next, I sort through what’s written, placing things into categories based on importance/need. Then, I work through my thoughts in order of importance/need.

By doing this, I’ve noticed that this process helps me recognize when life is about to get chaotic before it happens. Learning this process has been an important life lesson.

You can't be your best self with blurred vision. Clean your lens.

Until next time,

Joy
