Yesterday we had SPF Mastermind Legend, Kyle Newell, talk about mind mapping.
In a nutshell, mind mapping is how to understand and have better control of your brain.
Kyle went for 2 plus hours and unpacked a ton of incredible things every business owner should know about their brain (see P.S. to get access to this presentation).
He talked about journaling for a brief moment and basically said as gym owners our brains are going so fast…it’s only when we slowdown that things get clear.
He said: Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.
Journaling forces you to slow down because you cannot write as fast as you think, especially if you write in cursive, which is how you turbo charge the pre frontal cortex.
I knew this.
But, I hadn’t journaled in almost a month.
There’s a ton going on in my world right now.
A lot great…but some of it tougher that’s out of my control.
As much as I love what I do I had this underlying state of overwhelm going on in my mind.
I’m running 3 businesses right now.
Launching a 4th …and possibly a 5th.
Trying to be there as much as I can for my kids.
Being a support system for my family.
Continuing to manage my health.
And I’m in the process of hiring people for 4 different positions across my companies.
Needless to say, there are a LOT of decisions for me to make each day.
I sat down yesterday and journaled 5 pages…there was a lot to say to myself.
…and felt that level of angst evaporate.
I was going so fast.
I just needed to slow down.
The journaling did it.
Give it a shot.
