There's been a lot of talk in my circles lately on a certain theme...
and it's starting to kinda annoy me.
Thought I might share about it and see if I can process with you for a teeny minute.
So, what's the deal?
All the "thinking about it"... as in,
I just need to think about it
or, I've got to figure it out first...
Now, I do this too... so, truly, I do know I'm part of the cause of my own annoyance. HA!
Still. There's a tremendous amount of effort in planning to think about something vs. the actual 10 seconds it takes to just plain do the dang thinking.
It's a habit to think I need more thinking... I think... HAHAHHA!
When I'm over-thinking on a topic, I actually know what the next right thing to do is... but it's easier to tell myself I need to spend more time in thought.
What is actually needed is the courage to take the next 2 minutes regarding the next right thing... and to act! Put it in motion. I already know what to do... I just need to do it.
I can think about it again, some more,... after a tiny step of action has been taken.
Do now. Act now.
We have all day for action!
Note: I'm not suggesting to act rashly, or compulsively, or without thought at all... I'm sharing here that there's been more than once instance where I've had the ratio between the amount of thinking and the amount of action out of balance...
Does this ever happen to you?
You just tell yourself you need to be more thoughtful about the next right thing to do, but you're scared to do it, so you choose to spend more time going over the plan you already know you have?
We are so funny.
I do that.
I TOTALLY do that. It's a way of procrastinating when I'm scared, nervous, or anxious about what I already know I need to do.
And. I have plenty of time to take the next action today (for me it's a call I really do not want to make, but know that I need to make).
I've done all the preparatory thinking that's needed (and then some)...
now it's just time to make the call.
So. I'm doing it.
Thanks for listening today...
For you: Is there something you know you need to do and just don't want to do it?
