Last week I talked about the first step of being clear. This is to decide what you want to be clear about; your career, your health, your love life. A comment from a friend asked about exercises that one might use to help with this.
I’m finishing up a book about this topic that is full of exercises. I can’t reproduce all of that in a blog but I can give you some direction.
First of all you need to record what you are thinking. I carry a notebook with me all the time but this isn’t required. Most of you carry a phone that lets you record voice or video. Make comments and reflections during the day either in your phone or in your notebook.
Examine times during your day when you are uncertain and have a hard time making a decision. Having difficulty with decisions is a key indicator of a lack of clarity. Note these times and what is going on. Record what kind of issues you are having this difficulty making decisions. Do this for several days. At the end of a week, write down the areas where this clarity is lacking. Note how you feel about the areas you’ve noted. If you feel nervous, uncertain or fearful this is probably a fruitful area for you to explore; to make things more clear.
For a slightly different slant on this read my blog of January 29, 2015.
