Emily O. walks us through her theory that all of our thoughts can be broken down into three categories: important, urgent, and mostly irrelevant. The hosts suggest that you maintain an awareness of what values are important to you so that you can have a set filter when sorting through thoughts.
Challenge: Make a note of 3 important things for today first thing in the morning. (Make sure they aren’t being sneaky urgent thoughts.) Bonus points if you categorize some of your thoughts as important, urgent, or mostly irrelevant throughout the day.
