If you’re procrastinating—or procrastinating more—these days, there are reasons.
I talked about those reasons in this week’s Facebook Live:
(Please be kind about my hair. This is what it does when it doesn’t get cut in waaaaaaaay too long.)
First, stress is taking a toll on everyone right now. And the energy you use to deal with your stress gets taken away from the actions you would like to be doing now, whether that’s creating an online program, cleaning out a closet, or learning a new language. Understanding this dynamic can help you take some of the pressure off yourself.
Beyond that, more than the usual amount of stress in your life “raises the bar” so that the usual ways you use to get around your procrastination simply are no longer enough.
So, if you haven’t completely gotten rid of the subconscious blocks that lead you to procrastinate (which is what I do with clients), they will definitely be more powerful now.
For these reasons, I encourage you to give yourself grace during extra stressful times like these when you aren’t getting as much done.
