Do Not Be Afraid to Throw Down the Bankruptcy Card
About This #MyDay Post
Tonight, I found some time to complete the annual migration in my #bulletjournal. The idea of the yearly migration is to start with a new journal and only migrate unfinished tasks or other information from the prior year that must be included in the new year regardless if you have plenty of room in the existing journal.
I found the experience refreshing and, to some extent, liberating. And that got me thinking, have there been other times where I did something similar? That is, have I wiped the slate clean and started over in other areas of my life? The answer was obvious, yes. I've written about declaring an email bankruptcy before as a means to regain control of your inbox. My wife and I had done something similar on multiple occasions when we were obviously on different wavelengths with no foreseeable resolution in sight. We declared an emotional bankruptcy and started all over with the issue that we weren't connecting on.
As I contemplated how often I've done a do-over, I realized it’s a necessary tool to have in your arsenal. Declaring bankruptcy gets you back to square one and gives you the chance to start over and look at things from a different perspective.
Next time when you are in a situation where you can't see the forest through the trees, declare bankruptcy, and free your mind to have a fresh perspective.
