How important is it, anyway?
Evaluating my “need to do‘ list is always a challenge because I want everything completed right away. So, getting in a tizzy about my undone tasks happens. Regularly.
Is this true for you? Are you a high achiever? A closet perfectionist?
Anxiety rises, my breath gets shallow, my body holds tension, thoughts race, fears pop up to the surface and sometimes even harsh judgments take over.
You know the drill.
Not helpful. Right?!
Listening to my body helps me to regroup and when I am able to listen I can also ask: How important is this, anyway?
I wonder why the dramatics are so necessary when I have the capacity to take a bit more time and evaluate my priorities.
Getting clear about how important is it makes the process of prioritizing feel more fun and purposeful. With an easing of pressure I am able to find better solutions and actually enjoy my completions.
I love checking things off my list!
Let’s follow this one through:
Make a plan of action to shift this “need to do” into “done”. By answering these questions and looking more deeply at old patterns, you will have shifted a block.
Now you can more easily experience new movement.
In the flow, Darcy
