From Procrastination to Determination. Why "I Should" Is Not Helpful.

Updated: Jul 16, 2022

Do you ever sit around thinking, "I should..." but don't?

Here's why you (and I) get stuck in "shoulds":

When we step into "doing," we sign up for

✔ focusing on one thing to the exclusion of others that also seem appealing

✔ risking failure, embarrassment, or rejection

✔ using our full, concentrated brain power, which may feel overwhelming

✔setting aside our preference for ease, fun, and comfort

We anticipate that "doing" will be arduous.


❓ What if we thought about how we will feel when we successfully complete the task?

❓ What if we predicted positive outcomes and feedback?

❓ What if we stopped thinking about, studying, reading, and wishing something was accomplished - or worse, envying that someone else did it - and took one small action?
