Just get it done
I recently read something that inspired me to just get started. By ‘recently’ I mean 10 minutes ago and by ‘just get started’ I mean stop procrastinating or planning or expecting to ever be ready!
I think I have finally reached the point where I know that there is no such thing as ‘ready’, finally accepted that perhaps there is no such thing as perfection. I have finally acknowledged that while I love all the lists I have created and believe that they are necessary or at the very least comforting, they are not leading to any real action!
Oh believe me when I tell you they are pretty! Each list has been lovingly decorated with doodles or different coloured pens etc. (something I love doing by the way!) but that still doesn’t change the fact that they are getting me no where with my next step of actually actioning them.
it was probably only a few days ago we I made the interesting discovery that perhaps goals, as important a they are, are not the key to all success! Bare with me here, I don’t want to diminish the importance of goals, but what I want to do is turn the whole model of goal setting on its head… make goals the base, not the end product (or the base & the end product I guess)
Focus in the journey, not the destination – Greg Paterson
Turning the model of goal setting on its end helps you to rethink the process, rethink your approach to goals and your overall journey. Goals, even when they are SMART goals can still feel overwhelming, they can feel like they are hanging there just out of reach & at times just waiting to prove you wrong… forget about them, use them to identify the path you are going to take then forget about them. Suddenly you don’t have to worry about feeling ‘ready’ or ‘worthy’ or any other form of limiting feeling, all you need to focus on is navigating from one stepping stone to the next (the tasks).
Over the next month I will being finding & trying out new ways to make this new approach work, who wants to join me in my ‘get it done’ challenge! I’d love some support! If you’re in then come and find me… ‘get it done’ challenge Facebook group!
