Think about it for a second.
What is it that you’re avoiding? Is it a project? A workout? A person? Quitting a job? Starting a new job? Passion project? Nutrition program? Laundry? Dishes?
Time and time again I find myself procrastinating on the things I need to do.
That laundry? Yep still sitting in the corner unfolded.
This weekend, I found myself DREADING to work out. Literally would have traded my soul to not go for a run. But I promised myself all weekend that I would go for a run when I got off work.
So I downed the pre-workout, tied my shoes, turned on some jams, and off I went.
And when I finished… I felt so damn good.
When that laundry gets folded, I know I will feel the same way.
If we feel this good when we finish a task, why do we avoid it? I literally have no idea. Zero answers for you on that front.
What I can tell you is this: it helps if you schedule the task in.
All these projects I want to avoid, I put it in my calendar on when I will do it. I always say “If it’s not on my schedule, it doesn’t exist”
Take ALL those things you’re avoiding and put it on your calendar. Even if it’s a big task or complex, put small tasks on there. Start chipping away. Cause when you are finished… you will feel SO DAMN GOOD.
