Do you sometimes feel like we are living in a hyper-stimulated world? Like focusing is almost impossible? I get that feeling once in a while, and I get to a place where I have trouble seeing the forest for the trees. As a way handling this issue, I have developed a simple trick. It takes almost nothing to do. In fact, all you need is two pieces of paper and a pair of scissors.
With those three things, you can get a change of perspective. It will allow you to get either a bird’s eye view or an ant’s view. As part of this, you need to decide which you want, and the act of deciding will help pull everything together. Then, as you gaze at your issue, problem, or project you will know what to do.
In order to make things a little easier, I have also created a video to help. You can find the video, “Focus With Paper,” here.
