Goals, Fears & FACE IT

Posted on Thursday, August 30, 2012 in Emotional, How To, Relational, Social, Spiritual, Values

If you’re like most people I know, you’ve wanted to get some things done this summer.
Good intentions, but the followup through fell through.

You might be asking, “What can I do about my procrastinating?”
To that I might ask, “Why are you procrastinating now?”

Yesterday I introduced a helpful exercise I’m calling “Face It” or F.A.C.E. I.T.

F – Find something that you know you’re procrastinating with
A – Ask yourself, “Why am I procrastinating with this?”
C – Challenge your reasons to feel your feelings & find the facts
E – Examine your reasons: What do you feel strongest?

I – Investigate why you feel strongest about those factors
T – Target solutions to remedy those factors

It works, because:

When your goal < your fear = stuck in the past (through inaction)
When your goal > your fear = growth into the future (through action)

Q – How can you improve your appreciation for your goals?
A – Fight your fears.

More tomorrow.
