Even before the onset of Covid-19, it’s no question we live in a world of TOO. TOO many choices, TOO many things to do, and TOO much information. Now, we’re presented with new information daily while we navigate uncharted territory.

Ada Polla, CEO of the amazing Swiss based skincare line Alchimie Forever,(and an avid 9Grid user!) shared the above 9Grid on how she first processed the reality of COVID-19 a couple weeks ago. Here’s what she said:

I am an internal processor – I need to mull thing over in my head to get a grasp on and understanding of situations. So I internally processed this current Covid-19 reality over the last few days. Finally, denial gave way to a sense of urgency over taking back control…  control over something, over anything “Control the things you can control.” And my 9Grid’s helped me get that sense of control over this ever-changing reality. I can control these 9 squares. I can write things down. In turn, these 9 squares helped me organize my thinking, as they have so many times in the past. 

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, start small. Remember, the best answers are often the most simple. Your mind really does have the answers, and for many of us the first step to clarity is getting our thoughts out of our head and onto paper. Put the challenge in the center box and mind map everything you need to do make progress. Even if you just do ONE thing, you will be in a better place than you were before.
