Why You’re Not Doing What You Know You Need To Do
You're not doing what you know you need to do because you don't actually know what to do NEXT.
Being able to clearly visualize the next step you need to take is the key to getting into action.
You may have heard the quote, "once begun half done."
All or nothing thinking is making knowing what to do next hard. (PS. All or nothing thinking is one of the biggest causes of procrastination.)
Learning how to think in shades of grey is what will make your to-do list (and life) feel managable instead of intimidating. This is the work I do with my clients.
In order to stop procrastinating, you need to make it easier for yourself to begin.
Telling yourself things like,
"but it should be easier."
"but I DO know what to do."
"I have to..."
"I don't know where to start."
"I don't know what to do."
"I can't ..."
Does NOT make it any easier to begin. Instead of making yourself wrong for "not being able to do it" make it easier for yourself by answering these two questions:
1. What would you do first?
2. What would that look like?
WRITE THAT ONE THING DOWN. (No matter how simple this is, do not keep this in your head. That's a wish. And don't keep going with that list.)
& get into action.
If you STILL aren't getting into action, you need to make it even clearer and more doable for yourself. Put your pride aside, and make it easier.
Remember: your actions never lie. They are ALWAYS a reflection of what you really believe. If you're not doing it, you're making it too hard.
Enjoy making things easy!
