Benefits of Brain Dumping

  1. You will stop having random thoughts. Having these constantly feels like you have 20 tabs open in your mind.
  2. You will be able to think and work faster. Just like any other computer, when you have too many junk files, you start to slow down. Brain dumping is like deleting these junk files you don't need.
  3. Working will feel like a breeze without any worries or stressors. It's easier to be present and enjoy your work without having to think about everything all at once.
