Slow Down – You Move Too Fast

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I awoke this morning feeling energised but in a calmer way than that at the beginning of the week.

The last couple of days I have been in a panic – do I really want to take up coaching again, do I really want to help thousands of people (because that was what the email that sent me in a tail spin suggested), WHAT DO I REALLY WANT TO DO?

The panic culminated in my asking my coach for help yesterday evening and just the process of asking seems to have moved me forward.

“Why the hurry”?

“Why the mad dash to know everything I want now”?

Maybe slowing down to what I want now, today, in this moment is enough.

I can have some ideas of what I might want in the future but that is all they will ever be as long as they are in the future – ideas. When they are being created in the moment they will be what I want but for now the are just ideas.

So, I’m going to have a peaceful kind of day today and slow it right down. In the immortal words of Simon and Garfunkel – I’m “looking for love and feeling groovy”.

Care to join me for a groovy kinda day? 🙂

It’s Never About How

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I’ve been very stuck again today. Drifting from one thing to another without conscious intent. Waiting for something to happen to get me into action.

Eventually I moved. Got away from the computer and came outside. And now I am in a local cafe, writing. Not with the computer but “proper” writing with pen on paper. And I wonder how many times I must learn this lesson – to move away from the computer when I start to feel myself drifting. To do something different when my energy starts to drop. Ah well, I’m here now and that’s what counts.

Yesterday I signed up for Michel Neill’s ‘Create The Impossible in 30 Days’ program. The idea is you choose an “impossible” project to take on this July which you believe you have a less than 50% chance of success within the 30 days of the program.  Yesterday I was energised by the sheer audacity of my goal but today the “who do you think you are?”/”get real” voices are clamouring for attention and my energy has plummeted.

I am bogged down in the “how to” of the goal – how can I possibly achieve this at anytime, let alone in 30 days? – but I am reminded that it’s never about the “how to”. It’s always about the “want to”.  So what I’m really saying is “I don’t want this goal”, yet. So does this mean I’m not ready for the goal? No, it means I’m not committed to it. So I need to recommit and then take some  action that demonstrates this commitment.

Are you letting the “how to” of a goal stop your progress? If so, ask yourself if you really want it. If you do recommit and take action. If you’re not sure then let it go for now and move on to something you really do want.

Boredom Produces Energy Drops

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Yesterday was a very unsatisfactory one. I got bogged down in non-productive computer stuff despite having a “to do” list. I had good intentions but there’s not much point in having a list if you’re going to ignore it.

I spent a lot of time fiddling with Twitter and found my energy dropping as I got bored and wasn’t achieving anything. I struggled to break out of the funk though. The key, I’ve found, is to move as soon as I notice my energy dropping because the longer I leave it the harder it gets to shift. I resisted this yesterday which resulted in a deeply unsatisfying experience. So I’m keen not to repeat it today which got me thinking about why we so often find it hard to do the things that are good for us and stick with those that aren’t. Which got me thinking about the stuff about emotions in What the Bleep. So I’m going to go and watch the video again . . .
