‘The magic you’re looking for is in the work you are avoiding’. I wish I could refute this statement with all of my might but I can’t.
As a professional work avoider, I know how much (temporary) enjoyment I get from skiving off. That is until the chickens come home to roost.
I also know that doing the work is the actual key to unlocking rewards. And there’s no other way around it.
Usually that piece of work that I avoid becomes easy once I start doing it, then I’m bemused because ‘what was the big deal?, why was I avoiding this?’.
I’d had been procrastinating on writing a business plan for my next venture. When I did get around to it, I realised I had already completed a large portion of it on a previous occasion (I must have been delirious whilst doing it). Oh. So I can do it then.
With the new week upon us, what work have you been running away from? Run towards it. Grab it by the horns and make it y
our bitc submit to you. You already have what it takes, use it. Even if you don’t know how, start with what you know and things will begin to unfold.
I’m learning that with what you want, you can’t be afraid to work and sometimes work hard, as it is the very thing that will call forth your desires.
