We recently highlighted personal development blogger Dragos Roua’s suggestion to treat yourself as a computer to become the best version of yourself. One of his suggestions: Defrag your mind. Here’s a closer look at what he meant.
Roua extended his brain-as-computer metaphor a bit further, offering five steps to defragging your mind. It may sound a little silly, but a lot of it is actually pretty solid advice. For example, in step three Roua explains how to establish priorities:
If you ever witnessed a defragmentation, you saw that the most frequently accessed information is usually moved in the first sectors of your hard-disk. That would make it easier and faster to be accessed. And you’re going to do exactly that: make things easier to manage.
Identifying priorities is obviously closely related to the dominant setup. If you’re going to work more than usual, then one of your priorities would probably be to have your laptop charged as often as possible. If your main setup would be travelling related, maybe the tool which should be constantly charged is your mobile phone.
The easiest way to assess the priority is to use a scale from 1 to 5, 1 being the higher point of the scale. Take the previously gathered information and run it through this filter. Just start practicing and in time you’ll get better at it.
There you have it. Roua offers similarly good advice for each step in his mind-defrag process, so hit up the full post for his rundown.
