We've made it to the middle of season 2, which is all about "curing" procrastination. I don't actually think you can "cure" procrastination once and for all - it's sort of like bad weather, you will always have a sprinkle of it here and there, and some days will be worse than others. But what we can do is create a healthier ecosystem for managing procrastination in the ways that it shows up in our lives.
One of the ways that I'm creating a healthier ecosystem in my own life is building my "muscle" of making decisions. On this episode, I talk about decision making and the ways it can cause problems related to procrastination. Some of the things I cover are:
Bringing definition to my circumstances
Why grief has been important in learning how to make decisions
The ways decision making feels vulnerable
How perfectionism and accountability can make me freeze
Why it’s important to know what I’m saying “yes” to
I also announced that I’ll be launching a course/book study in January 2023. If you want to be the first to know when I have all the details figured out and registration is live, visit PersonalGrowthSucks.com/Courses to get on the email list.
