I was listening to a coach and mentor of mine and she was talking about a concept called “closing the loop.” In your brain, you have an open and close loop. When you expect something, your brain’s loop is on open until you complete it.
For instance, if I told you that I got you a gift, your brain would stay on the "open" mode until you received your present and then it would be "closed."
Have you ever had the experience where you couldn’t remember the name of someone and then after some time, your brain finally remembered? You had opened a loop when you couldn’t think of the name and your brain continued to search until it found the name and could close the loop.
This occurs also when you’re completing tasks, reading e-mails, asking questions, etc.
When my coach was describing this concept, a light bulb went off in my head, I have a lot of loops open! Even worse, I am not very good at closing loops.
I need to close the loop on things, if a patient sends an email, I need to reply and keep them posted.
When you respond and close a loop, you allow people to move on. Allow people to close the loop in their brain! It will free up their brain to do other things. The same applies to you and your brain.
