We have all experienced days when our plate is full. When we have so much on our to-do-list that we don’t know where to start. This often leads us to feel overwhelmed. Why? Well, our working memory is not only consumed by the tasks ahead of us and the impending decision, but more often than not we are also consumed with negative thoughts and emotions. The result? No room for the working memory to be productive!
If we want to be effective leaders in business and life we need to maximise the productivity of our working memory. So what is one solution we should consider? Put pen to paper! The new age idea of journalling is actually backed by science suggesting that the process of writing down our concerns can free up the working memory to make more effective decisions.
