The Three F's of Mental Chaos In Leaders
and the Fifteen Minute Cure

Fog - Fear - Fixation

The first cure to mental chaos is to focus on prioritizing your demands, organizing your thoughts and gaining clarity on the direction you are heading - or the direction that you NEED to be heading. If you left your house in the morning to drive to the airport to catch a flight and it was foggy outside, what would you do? You would get in your car, turn on the engine, turn on the lights, turn on the windshield wipers and drive very carefully toward the airport. You can't afford to miss your flight but you have unplanned obstacles with the weather. The same principal applies when your mind is foggy. You need to reengineer your thinking and clear your mind. Before you entered a state of mental chaos, you had a destination - just as would if you were driving to the airport in the fog. The pressure of catching the plane caused clarity of thinking and focus on the destination. The same thing occurs when you focus on clearing your mind in order to get back on the road to success.

For many people, the best way to clear your mind is to write down everything (in no particular order) that you need to accomplish - a virtual Brain Dump. That relieves you of the pressure of trying to juggle all of the priorities and the clouds of your mind start to thin. Once you have captured all of your tasks on paper, you can move to the next step on the road to the cure of mental chaos.


You now have everything that you need to accomplish on paper and you should have a fresh outlook - you should be starting to see light through the clouds. You now need to create a roadmap so you don't lose your way if you have a future detour. Make a PLAN. Take all of the things you listed and prioritize them - assign dates to them, whether real or arbitrary, to help organize what needs to be done and when it needs to be done. Now you are on your way to MENTAL CLARITY vs. MENTAL CHAOS.


The best way to fight the fixation is to DO SOMETHING about it. Now, here is where it all starts to come together - apply the same focus that you did to create your plan and begin to execute it - follow your roadmap. Use the same focus you did in the Brain Dump to allow yourself to think of new, creative ways to approach your goals. Focus on breaking your paradigms. Don't approach the plan and the tasks on the plan with the same methods you have used in the path. Remember the definition of insanity that leads to mental chaos? Don't let history repeat itself. Evaluate everything on your plan and FORCE yourself to come up with at least one alternative way of accomplishing the same thing in a different way than you have in the past. Once you have done this with the first 2 or 3 items, it will become more natural and you will start to see all of the possibilities that weren't clear to you in your foggy state.

DON'T WAIT - START NOW! Get a piece of paper and just start jotting down all of the things running through your mind that you need to do - bills you need to pay, calls you need to make, clients you need to meet with, reports you need to complete - whatever those tasks are, don't be judgmental of them and don't try to solve them - just WRITE THEM DOWN.

In FIFTEEN minutes or LESS, you will have completed the first step of curing your mental chaos. If the first step is this easy, isn't it worth your time to invest in all 3 cures and start turning that energy that is cluttering your mind into positive, productive energy?
