Hey |IF:FNAME| |FNAME| |END:IF| ð
When Iâm struggling to figure out exactly what I want, or when Iâm trying to make a decision, I normally write and talk about it. So I can get it out my head. Because inside my head things arenât always in proportion. Things are fuzzy. And I often go around in circles. But writing and talking arenât the only tools you can use here. Drawing is an incredibly effective decision-making tool. When you draw something, whether itâs a situation, an experience, or an object, you take time to create a picture of what it looks like. Your brain is really good at using drawingsâeven stick men or rough doodlesâas input for imagining what something could look, feel, and even smell like. As we draw, our thoughts become visual, which our brains can use more productively than words and blurry thoughts. Weâre visual creatures.
By intentionally and consciously drawing what we want, or what we think we want, or even a bunch of options, we allow our visual brains to see into the future. We allow it to try something on without actually buying it. Itâs like creating parallel universes. Itâs powerful! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSi710fPCe4&ab_channel=TapTapKaboom
Try drawing various scenarios to choose from the next time youâre making a decision. Or when youâre trying to figure out what you actually want. It will clarify your thoughts. And present your brain with more visual data to make a decision with. Try practicing the technique with these items below. I posted a similar set of prompts on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/p/COZcpvrBG7e/) this week. * Perfect coffee location * Ideal desk setup * Yummiest breakfast * Your next pair of shoes * Best weekend ever * Perfect holiday * What you want your home to be
Let me know how it goes!
Also, apparently, today is World Password Day. I didnât know that was a thing. Anyway, 1Password is celebrating this (makes sense) by offering a 6-month free trial to new users. I use 1Password for everythingâbank accounts, unique password generation, 2 factor authentication, security questions and more! Itâs fluffing awesome. Tap this link (https://start.1password.com/sign-up/?c=PASSWORDDAY) to get in on the magic. I donât get anything out of promoting thisâitâs just something I love using every day.
Another thing I use all the time is Listenable. I published my Get Inspired: Explore Your City course (https://ttkb.me/get-inspired-listenable) on there as an audio course, and in the past week I got bumped up to first class (featured teachers list) which means I get access to big promo campaigns. Like this one (https://listenable.io/web/plans/?coupon=TEACHER60) where you get 60% off your first year of Listenableâthat means paying $2 per month for some pretty awesome audio content. I mainly listen to these courses when Iâm cooking and commuting. I also donât get anything out of promoting this.
Finally, I posted a video (https://www.instagram.com/p/COdGaadhzOl/) of wise words from Goda (Yodaâs friend) for Star Wars DayâMay the 4th be with you!
