Motivation Monday - Stop Overthinking and GO For It!

Apr 11, 2022

We've all been there. 

We know what we *have* to do.

Maybe we even *want* to do it.

But we get caught up in the "how's", "why's", "what-if's", "when's".

We get so caught up in the nitty-gritty, and trying to make it all "perfect", or waiting for the "perfect" time, or "perfect" opportunity.

You know where this is headed...

We never even get started.

And then that Itty Bitty Shitty Committee gets going in our head.

"You should have done it."

"It isn't that hard, why didn't you just DO IT?"

On and on in a crappy little merry-go-round of self-flagellation that really makes everything so much worse.

So here's what I want you to do this week:

Take a leaf out of Mel Robbins' book and give yourself a deep breath and a countdown of 5-4-3-2-1 and then DO it.

You don't have to be perfect.

You don't have to do anything but whatever it is you've been procrastinating about forever.

Just do it.

Do your best.

Forget the rest.

And then pat yourself on the back and celebrate the heck out of yourself for actually DOING what needed to be done!!!

Whether this is exercising, cleaning, a work project, cleaning up the dog poo, whatever it is, just getting down to DOING it will get it done, get it done in a reasonable amount of time, and you know damn well you're going to feel amazing when it's done.

Don't let things grow and grow out of proportion and build stress and anxiety in your life.

Get it done, stop overthinking and feel AMAZING that you've finished it.

I know you can do it!

So DO it and then celebrate! Start your week on a positive footing by getting just one thing done that you have been procrastinating and overthinking. Do your best, then keep putting one foot in front of the other. You've got this.
