When you know what you want to be doing but you aren’t doing it

When you know what you want to be doing, but you aren't doing it.

I'll preface this by saying, while I can't tell you specifically what your reason is unless we're on a consult call, what I CAN tell you, is broadly what the most common reasons are:


1. You aren't planning

2. You aren't planning in a way that makes follow through easily

3. You're relying on motivation to do the thing

4. You're distracting yourself - with your phone, with email, or with snacking

5. You're trying to do too many things at once

6. You aren't 100% committed to doing that thing - this doesn't mean you're lazy, it just means you're stuck in a negative belief loop like, "I can't" or "I don't want to" or "It seems too hard" or "I don't know where to start" or "I haven't been able to do it before - to name a few.

These negative belief loops are holding you back.

If you're tired of knowing what you want to do and not doing it - book a consult. Let's fix that.

Just knowing what the ACTUAL problem is - specific to YOU, will save you so much time and so much energy.

When you're solving for the surface level problem, you're often solving for the wrong problem.

Let me give you a client example:

A client of mine wasn't doing things that she wanted to do, and she thought the reason why she wasn't taking action was because she didn't have a compelling enough reason to take action.

So she spent her time trying to come up with a compelling enough reason to get her into action (I've done this too! It's a VERY common thing that we hear, especially in the self-help/coaching space).

The real problem was the way she was planning wasn't clear and simple and easy to follow.

This is an example of solving for the wrong problem.

Her reasoning seemed so logical. That's why it's sneaky!

If you want to make sure you're spending your time solving for the right problems, schedule your consult here.
