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

Fog - Fear - Fixation

by Sue Stebbins

1 | 2

Are you plagued with the distress of mental chaos? Do you feel like there is perpetual fog in your brain that you can't seem to clear out? Are you afraid to fail? Do you feel trapped in your current environment, with no way out? If so, you are with the large majority of leaders - it is a normal feeling. Seems ironic to mention normalcy and mental chaos in the same statement, doesn't it? Not really.

In today's world, multi-tasking is no longer a talent or a new way of thinking - it is a requirement and it is demanded of people in leadership roles - from stay at home parents to entrepreneurs to CEO's of Fortune 100 Companies. With multi-tasking demands often comes mental chaos.

Does Your Brain Feel Foggy?

By definition, fog exists when clouds touch the ground and limit our visibility. Our minds are no different when too many thoughts collide. We can easily become foggy and lose sight of our direction. When our brains become foggy, we have to turn on our internal windshield wipers and FOCUS on our direction. That focus comes from within and is mandatory in order to drive toward the vision - toward the destination of success.

Are You Overwhelmed with Fear?

Are you afraid of being lost in the fog? Do you feel like you have no hope of reaching your destination? If you feel like you are driving in circles, you are not alone - we have all hit a point in our lives that we are driving forward and feel we are not making progress. Fear is caused by the lack of direction, the lack of progress and potential failure if we do not find our way - all as a result of the murkiness that has built up in our minds. Without a clear map, we have little hope of getting back on track.

Have You Become Fixated with the Status Quo?

When we have multiple priorities without a plan and still have the same expectations of ourselves, we often revert to our old habits and stop thinking. You are probably saying to yourself, "What do you mean I STOP thinking?" The fact is that under the pressures of seemingly insurmountable deadlines, we are afraid to think "out of the box". We revert to "doing what we have always done", when, in fact, the state of chaos is usually the BEST time to think creatively. If we do not force ourselves to think of innovative solutions, we become fixated in our current state. That fixation naturally closes our ears and minds to new ideas or different approaches. If often forces us into our comfort zone and results in completing tasks that are not necessarily the means to the end. Someone once said "If we do what we've always done, we'll get what we've always gotten." How true. The definition of insanity is doing the same things and expecting different results, so when your mind is in a state of chaos why perpetuate the insanity?

There are CURES to this mental anguish. Mental chaos does not have to be a continued state of mind. There are 3 CURES to the MENTAL CHAOS that most leaders face every day.
