Interference………Obstructing progress……Getting in your own way…….
That was me this morning! Now that I have caught up with myself, I don’t even see how it happened; I know the WHY, but not the HOW. I love mornings and I love Mondays, so this definitely disappoints me.
I think we all have a tendency to let this happen by not slowing ourselves down and really focusing on what we are trying to accomplish. I know I personally look at being able to multi-task as “winning”; but a lot of the time this leads to multiple projects with little to no results!
This applies whether it’s a goal you’re working towards, or your daily tasks- as was mine; which would have gotten done with a little more joy had I taken a moment to look at what NEEDED to be done right then, and what could actually wait for the “morning rush” to be over!
So when we feel ourselves “getting in our own way”, stop and look at where we think our current (negative-unproductive) behavior is going to get us, and what is one (1) thing we can do right then to move towards our wanted end result. The “duh” moment; the one (1) thing that brings clarity and refocus.
