Making the time to sit and think is something we often overlook, but is highly valuable in order to recharge, refresh, re-strategise and re target. Its time for some Strategic Daydreaming.
Being inundated with daily tasks, social streams and the daily grinds of business is the hardcore truth about being an adult out of school and living life in the big city. How can we make sure that we make time to let our brains wonder and discover what they have to discover to help us achieve, live out our goals and dreams and jump over hurdles and road blocks? This is where Strategic Daydreaming enters the picture.
What is Strategic Daydreaming?
It is an exercise that helps one let go and lets thoughts run wildly, on a path.
How do you perform Strategic Daydreaming?
First, your brain is fed a topic, then the engine is started. In this 3-5 minute session, your brain puts the pieces together, sorts through whatever data you’re hiding up there, and spits out interesting coagulations of thesis’. Simple right? Feed your brain the data, and sit back, relax and listen to your brain at work.
When are the best times for Strategic Daydreaming?
Strategic Daydreaming usually works best when inserted into the intersection of thoughts, or when one wants to meditate on a particular thought or planned task or event. This could be during your morning or evening rituals of gratefulness/thankfulness, or during the middle of a project where the roadmap seems as if its starting to stray down a bumpy gravel road.
How can you measure effective Strategic Daydreaming?
This can be measured by non-other than your brains ability to wade through content and data and come back with anything that can make you think differently, or get you out of that pothole you’ve sunk into.
