One step at a time
With the huge array of things we have to do in our life, I feel the best approach is to break everything down into bite size pieces. When a project is too big, we’re more likely to feel overwhelmed. Resistance doesn’t need any excuse if it feels we are incapable or incompetent. Breaking tasks into smaller chunks helps us to get off the starting block and is a great reward for our brain. We all know how good it feels to tick off a number of activities on our list rather than just one.
I also find taking one step at a time helps us solve problems slowly rather than jump into the solutions too quickly. When we act impulsively, we can often make the wrong decisions. Instead, be more considered. Make a list of the pros and cons for a course of action but also think about the consequences of those actions too?
When you give yourself more time, your mind turns into, what I call, a percolator! It sees different opportunities and approaches to help you achieve your goals rather than continually using the same old ways. Remember the saying, when you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got!? Shake up the process and start to form new helpful habits.
