It’s amazing how we can get so excited to go after our goals. We’re really feeling it.
We know this is it.
It’s our time.
We tell our friends and family members and even blast across social media what’s about to go down. We dive into the work that needs to be done, and feel great about our progress.
We know how the compound effect works: little by little, day in and day out we work towards manifesting our dreams. We do the work. Life is good.
But then there are those days where we suit up at our appointed time, but for some reason we enamor ourselves with distractions. We repeatedly check our e-mail, dilly-dally around on Facebook, and end up making just one more call…and oh wait, we jump on unloading those clean dishes in the dishwasher. What!?! Really?
Good news is if you’re like me, you can call yourself out.
That’s what I’m doing now.
I’ve had a book bubbling up inside of me for a couple of years now and it’s time. I’ve declared that it’s time and have taken all the necessary steps to make this dream a reality. I got my team together (a variety awesome coaches) to support me in this journey. I’ve plowed through the outline, made some decisions regarding the direction, set an amazing intention and now all that’s left to do is write.
So why am I writing on this blog now versus letting it flow in the form of pages in my book? Am I just distracting myself from the work that needs to be done?
Yes and no…okay more so yes. But hear me out!
My commitment was to blog everyday; but I also made a commitment to have this book done before the end of the month.
So…now what needs to be done?
That is the single most important question you can ask yourself and then to take action on in order to fight procrastination and get back to moving in the direction of your dreams. Thanks coach J for sharing that wisdom!
Now what needs to be done?
I’m off to complete chapter 1.
Yes, this work scares me, but that’s no excuse to let procrastination keep me from sharing this gift with the world.
It’s time to, “feel the fear and do it anyway.” That’s what needs to be done.
