I know that when I get stressed I can procrastinate. I do not like to do things like write newsletters or make phone calls when I feel blocked, feel shitty or when I am not in the flow.
Can I explain ‘being in the flow’?
It is sort of the feel good feeling, where I just feel good. All the traffic lights are on green and I just flow through life. That is a good way to describe it. I find myself meeting the right people at the right time, I ask for something and it turns up. Being in the flow is a feeling of being happy and wanting to share.
This is different from wanting to hide, though I do not want to focus on that energy too much. As I have said before, where the attention goes, the energy flows.
I will discuss my procrastination though, because as I shine a light on it, it will cause it to change.
I procrastinate when I am stressed or overwhelmed. I let people distract me and I allow people to waste my time. I do not like ‘too much naffing about’ is one of my sayings. I can spend days and weeks avoiding, though in hindsight I usually avoid because I am not feeling it.
I can naff about myself as well. I am very good at looking busy, when in reality I am not doing anything at all. I can be sitting on my computer, when really I am just surfing the web.
So what excuses do I give?
I am too busy, I have too much to do, he or she made me do it, I feel like shit or what’s the use?
I know these well and I do have the power and the tools to change all of these. So let’s do that.
