Sometimes it’s a good idea to put something off. You make a conscious choice to postpone a task or a project because it’s for your highest good, or the timing will be better later. But I find the main reasons I put things off for my coaching business have more to do with my state of mind.
I looked into this recently because there was an important project I put off all week and then guilty thoughts about the thing occupied my entire weekend. No good!
Have you ever done this?
Here’s the scenario… you wake up and think about that thing you’re putting off, your mind wanders to it through exercise and breakfast. By the end of the day, you feel like you’ve been royally nagged. It’s almost as if some part of you really wanted to get going on that thing while the rest of you resisted. Big energy drain!
So I created these questions to manage my states and stop wasting energy and it’s working!
