We humans often have the tendency to sway towards extremes — it’s easier to stick to an extreme than go through the discomfort of finding a balance.
Our society today can be viewed through 2 lenses: One group of people is the high achievers group — people who are always switched on, constantly doing, with no time to rest, smile, or live; they are always doing.
And then the other group of people are those who are so eager to break away from the pressure faced by the high-achiever group that they end up doing so little or nothing at all.
“I don’t feel like writing blog posts”.
“I don’t feel like making an offer”.
“I don’t feel like working this week”.
“I want to wait until I feel into it before I get started with …”
And on and on.
How many times have you heard such words (or even said them yourself)?
As a business owner, you can’t wait to feel something every single time before you carry out your tasks.
As a matter of fact, several times you’d need to do something before you feel a certain way.
As a solopreneur, the work you do is so important to the world because you get to work with people 1-on-1 and transform their lives in amazing ways that only you can.
In other words, you’re actually making the world a better place — one person at a time.
Don’t rob the world of your gifts and talents because you didn’t feel like creating content or you didn’t feel like making an offer or whatever else you don’t feel like.
Am I suggesting that we should default to the hyperactive, always-on, never-stopping model of constant doing?
Am I saying that you should no longer trust your intuition & listen to what may be true for you?
Of course not.
What I’m saying, instead, is that you should create a system or process that allows you to carry out your most important work in a sustainable manner .
Don’t change your business plan every 2 days because you feel differently today than when you made the plan.
And don’t wait for me to say any further in this article because my time is up.
And that’s the key lesson — just do it anyway.
I know that there’s a lot more that I need to write in this article in order to better explain the concept; and maybe not everyone who reads this will understand what I’m talking about.
But that’s okay.
The key is that I set myself a deadline & I’m going to stick to it.
I could always schedule another time in the future to come back & improve this article.
But for today, it’s enough.
And it will help exactly who it was meant to help.
Stop waiting for your feelings only —- create a system, schedule time to do your work, and then just do it anyway.
