Leap of Faith
Ever been on the edge of making a decision but a bit fearful just in case it doesn’t work out to plan?

Sometimes the simple act of getting things out of your head and onto paper (or your preferred device) allows you to logically consider which way to go.
How does this make you productive you might be wondering?
When you have ideas, thoughts, fears or worries running around your head they can seem overwhelming and can impact on your ability to do everything else you need to in life.
When you visually “see” them it often doesn’t seem as overwhelming or as hard and if it does, allow yourself to step away from the information and come back after a break. You may find it is just what you need to get you productive again.
Is there a decision you need to make in your life that is taking up mental “space” and stopping you from being productive?
Make it easier to take the leap of faith by trying the pros and cons technique.
