Do you suffer from procrastination? This episode is for you. I covered this in part on an IG live last week which you can join every Thursday at 11am EST. But today I want to go a little deeper into the big goals side of things. On the live we talked about, Why do you procrastinate? How do you stop yourself from procrastinating? What are the benefits of procrastinating and how can you make it work for you?
So today I thought we’d talk more about what happens when you set ginormous goals for yourself and then totally bail on them, whether you want to or not.
What happens when you set big goals?
Sometimes when we set very big goals for ourselves it can conjure up feelings of fear - what if I fail? What will people think if I don’t do what I say I’m going to do?
And then there’s feelings of overwhelm - How will I get from where I am now, to this massive huge goal, I don’t even know the first step?
And finally, it can feel like you’re trapped. You’ve committed to this goal, you’ve told everyone you know what you’re doing - and now you have a sense of responsibility to deliver on something that is causing way more panic than joy in your life.
Like launching a podcast. That’s a big dream! And if you’ve never done it before, it’s overwhelming! At least that’s what my clients and students say when we start talking about why they haven’t done it yet.
So what I do as always is break everything down into tiny little steps. Obnoxiously tiny.
No matter what your goals are, or your reason for procrastinating on your big dreams, this process can help you. Give it a try and write down a bunch of little steps that you need to take so that you can accomplish your dreams!
