Frankie - - REAL LIFE -

My brain is an anx­ious one. It's for­ever imag­in­ing ex­actly how the pile of things that make up my life – work, re­la­tion­ships, house­plants – might tum­ble into an un­for­giv­able mess. After spend­ing a lot of time and money on all man­ner of ther­a­pies to tame this part of my­self, I fell deeply in love with pro­duc­tiv­ity hacks and goal­track­ing jour­nals. That's when I re­alised (as cre­ative coach Jes­sica Abel says), "Anx­i­ety is en­ergy with no place to go." The an­swer is there­fore to find a way to tap into that en­ergy and give it some place to go! I'm a big fan of se­ri­ous project plan­ning, time­track­ing, goal-set­ting, self-re­ward-giv­ing, struc­tured re­flec­tion and all the rest of that nerdy ‘an­nual wall cal­en­dar’ type stuff.
