Why You Need a Business Dump
Discussing bodily functions is not exactly an approved topic of conversation at the dinner table or even in everyday dialogue. In fact, most folks find it downright crude and offensive. Warning: going to the rest-room is exactly what I’ll discuss in this post.
Our bodies are programmed to know what they need and release the rest. Even people with uber healthy diets get rid of leftovers because their bodies have too much to handle at one time. Think about how often you use the bathroom each and every day: at least two or three times a day (or maybe even ten times, depending on how much liquid you drink) your body flushes out toxins and other consumed materials that are filtered through your kidneys. Once daily – if you’re lucky – your body jettisons a heavier load of unneeded supplies out the other end.
The Business Application
We’ve got crap in another place besides our colons. Entrepreneurs have heads that are full of it – the next great business venture, the next awesome marketing plan, an amazing blog idea at holiday time, the perfect power-team partnership, the ideas are endless. The problem is, our bodies don’t have a natural filter for what’s going on up there, so things can get a little clogged.
How do you relieve constipation of the mind and keep your synapses regular? Take a brain dump at least once a week. For my clients with sleep issues, I recommend that they take a dump before bed. Get all of the ideas out of your head and onto paper or your phone or computer. Unplug your mind to make room for the creativity that needs to happen in order for you to take action and implement the thoughts and ideas that have been swirling around up there.
Entrepreneurs are big dreamers. Successful entrepreneurs make those dreams happen. How can you manage what’s going on up there in order to be productive and blaze a trail? Take a dump.
