So, I like posting a blog at the beginning of every month to make sure a blog is written every month. But this month, I just can’t get to it. I find myself derailed, surfing through horse rescue videos on Facebook, looking for out-of-season craft products online, snack breaks, no food in the house grocery store run, call a friend, and check my email. But there is no blog construction.
It is not that I do not want to do it. I enjoy writing. It is fun to research what other folks have to say about my topic, apply it to what I want to say, edit, refine, and then publish. It brings me a great sense of accomplishment. So why am I avoiding this activity I love?
Procrastination has nothing to do with the desire to do something. It is about the hidden emotions that push us away from the activity. These hidden emotions are buried in the subconscious and not expressed or felt “loudly” like anger, fear, or even depression, which we usually think of as a quiet emotion.
The avoidance of the task IS the emotional expression.
Some unintegrated emotional experience in our past is triggered by the task we want to perform. It could be self-doubt, low self-esteem, anxiety or insecurity. A negative subconscious association defects us from approaching the task with confidence to get the job started and completed.
The procrastination around writing this blog is in my face currently. But we have many tasks in our life that get put on the back burner: big projects, little chores, 5-seconds of focused effort that do not get done.
How can we get rid of procrastination?
We resolve the emotions that are in our way. Emotional Resolution, EmRes, removes the unintegrated emotion, which opens up time and opportunity to get the job done.
It doesn’t take much EmRes to clear out whatever is pushing me away. And now I write the blog 😊
Are you ready to get things done?
