I hope that with this series I’ve been able to show you that it’s negative emotions that underly most instances of procrastination. That’s how we try to protect ourselves from bad stuff – which in most cases isn’t even true. So we procrastinate because of emotions.
Worries, fears, and of course, outdated safety programs.
I also hope that I could encourage you to tap on these feelings when you’re procrastinating again on something.
Because all these fears and worries, and especially that nasty bad conscience when you didn’t do something again – all of this doesn’t even have to happen.
All you need to do is to tap on these resistances as they come up. And the tasks you procrastinate on are the perfect triggers to make them visible.
It’s as simple as that.
A round of tapping takes a few minutes, at most. And sometimes, all you need to do is to become aware of what is really going on to make it shift.
I have that happen often just while I tap on the side of the hand, working through my set-up phrases. Of course, I have a huge amount of experience and both my body and my subconscious are used to tapping and react quickly. But it’s also possible for you.
Go ahead, practice this, and you’ll find that you procrastinate less and get more done.
While feeling better.
Maybe you’ll even create little systems to get stuff done (that’s fancy speak for setting up a routine).
Maybe from now on, you’ll vacuum every Wednesday. Or do your bookkeeping on Fridays. Or send out a newsletter on every 10th of the month.
The advantage of such systems is that you no longer question them. You just do your task.
And those safety programs will stop getting triggered.
Because now it’s simply habit, something normal.
You’ll just do those things.
Even though I just can’t believe that I’d ever get used to doing things without resistance, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I’m open to the possibility I could reach that state.
Even though I can’t believe that I’d ever be able to overcome all that resistance, I’m okay the way I am, and I now give myself permission to tap and try out systems.
Even though I can’t even conceive of being able to do some things without resistance, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I now choose to tap and change my life – and make it easier!
How do you feel about systems?
Have you tried them already?
What happened while you were tapping?
And finally – are you writing right now?
