Why You're Not Taking Action
We all want to get more done but we so often get in our own way. Here are common reasons why you're not taking the action you want and how to overcome them.
What You'll Need
- A willingness to try
What You'll Do
- You're giving yourself too much time. Work expands to fill the time you have so set yourself much stricter time limits. Halve the amount of time you would normally allocate for a task - you'll be amazed at how much more you achieve with a bit of time pressure.
- You scared of being uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable doesn’t mean it’s not working or you’re doing badly. Discomfort doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with you. The unknown is always uncomfortable. But success means doing new things and risking failure and our brains are wired to avoid uncertainty, novelty and failure. You can either be uncomfortable because you're growing or uncomfortable because you're stagnating but either way, discomfort isn't going anywhere so time to embrace it.
- You're a perfectionist. Me too. Just remember, B- work can change people’s lives. Work you never produce won’t change anything.
Tips & Warnings
- Try this approach for just a week and see what happens.
