“Waiting is a trap. There will always be reasons to wait. The truth is, there are only two things in life, reasons and results, and reasons simply don’t count.” (Robert Anthony)
I thought teachers have heard all of the excuses in the world, but I would bet that coaches and employers have heard more!
Here are some that have stuck with me throughout the years:
“I have to wait until I’m in a creative space to start writing.”
“My kids take up all of my time and energy, so after they are grown up I will go after my dreams.” (kids were 9, 10, 13)
“I don’t work during a full moon.”
“I figured why bother, and wait until Mercury Retrograde is over.”
Waiting is a form of procrastinating and procrastination is fear in disguise. Fear of failure, fear of success, fear of what people will think, fear of not being good enough, fear of it not being perfect, fear of no-one buying it, fear it will be too hard, etc…
Waiting is similar to worrying….like being in a rocking chair is technically moving, but you aren’t going anywhere.
Let me teach you my three-step strategy to mastering procrastination (AKA waiting), so you can get out of your own damn way and squeeze the most out of this one life we get!
