Here are a few key takeaways.
Creating order out of chaos is liberating
Don't want to scare the crap out of you, but have you ever thought about how many computer files are buried on your computer's hard drive?
Most computers today have anywhere from 500GB to 1B of space. Does this mean you have so many files stored on your computer that you probably can't remember where they live?
I would bet you are one of the many that are shaking your head yes.
Life is busy. Or as I like to say "focused." The last thing on your big, fat to-do list is prioritizing and organizing your computer files. Out of sight, out of mind is what I always say and because you cannot physically see or tangibly touch those files, they are forgotten.
Until you want to create that birthday post for your kid and are searching for that one particular photo from kindergarten. An hour or two later, you are still diving deep down that rabbit hole.
What you intended to get done on that particular day is now pushed even further down your to-do list. Frustrated and...
Do you ever experience brain fog?
I was asking because just recently, I was reading an article that said that the average person is processing about 75 GB of information per day.
That means that the amount of information, entering your space and your brain is equivalent to watching more than 32 hours of television. That's 32 hours in one day. How is that possible? We only have 24 hours in a day.
When you look at it that way, it's no wonder that so many of us are struggling.
Just the other day I was working with one of my clients who is carving out a completely new path for herself. It's nothing even remotely similar to her previous career (of 20+ years, I might add). She is completely committed to this new lane, but the hoops she has to jump through in order to get this new machine running is a lot for a one-woman show to handle.
I knew she was overwhelmed - because she told me. So, in trying to help her feel less overwhelmed I realized a few things.
Do you ever take things for granted?
I certainly do and was reminded of this the other day when a fabulous human in my group, Tech Talk, could not figure out how to share her “Zoom” screen.
Over the past 2 plus years, I bet you have used Zoom over a dozen times. And if you haven’t, I commend you.
When I got off that coaching call, I started thinking about all of those I have worked with over the years and how the majority of them are challenged when it comes to computer stuff.
I can confidently sit here and tell you that that is not me. And not because I am an above-average tech-savant but more so because I am wildly (to a fault) curious. Nothing lights my butt on fire more than figuring something out. Google is my friend and so are those “live chat” options that live in the bottom right corner of most digital platforms and apps.
But that is just me.
And the biggest challenge I see is that most of us can’t figure...
