You need input, advice, and inspiration in order to make decisions, come up with new ideas, and take action.
But with too many inputs (especially too many non-essential inputs) your ability to think clearly and make decisions gets hindered. It leads to less progress, dual focus, and, ultimately, very little traction.
By removing non-essential inputs, you will have more space to think, find clarity, and organize your thoughts. Thus enabling you to take focused action and see progress.
If you’re struggling to find clarity and gain traction, consider cutting back on anything that is distracting you from being able focus and find clarity.
