I don’t want to do it - and I don’t want to do it Now! - The art of putting sutff off.
Auntie G’s medium size question list for when you’ve turned putting stuff off into an art form
Got something you are putting off? Have you got 2 mins to do some thinking about it right now? If yes then carry on.
What is the best thing that will happen when you have done it?
What is the best thing that would happen if you didn’t do it?
What is the worst thing that will happen when you have done it?
What is the worst thing that would happen if you didn’t do it?
How much more spare brain time / energy will you have when you have done it?
How will you spend that time and energy? What will be different about doing things when you’ve done the thing you were putting off?
How exactly will you be thinking or feeling differently when you have done it?
What can you do in five to ten minute (fairy step) chunks to start doing it?
Can you do that?
Will you do that?
When will you do that?
What will you be most grateful for when you have done it?
What are you going to do now?
Tip - write down the questions that have prompted you to think the most…… and stick them somewhere where the sun DOES shine!
love Auntie G
