It’s that time of the week!
I get a bit bored with routines but we need to put them in place until things become unconscious for us.
We think we live consciously, thinking about what we’re doing and saying, but for the most part, we live totally UNconsciously. Think about when you learned to drive. At first, you had to think about every single thing you had to do: brake, press the clutch, release the clutch, change gears, check your mirrors, look over your shoulders, brake, accelerate, change gears again, it was all so overwhelming & difficult at first. When we’ve been driving for a few years though, we don’t even think about what we’re doing; we change gears without even thinking about it, we indicate automatically, we brake when necessary.
But after we’ve been doing something for a while, the movements and actions that we must do to achieve an outcome become unconscious: we don’t have to think about doing them, we simply do them. That’s why, when we’re trying to do something new, as we are here, we need to do things regularly until we begin to do them automatically, unconsciously. Creating our week is one of those things.
Think about what you want to experience over this coming week more than you think about what you want to do or achieve. Think of it this way: if you were to achieve all of those things on your list, with ease and fun and lightheartedness (or whatever takes your fancy), who will you be being when you did that? Do you understand? Who will that person be who achieved all those things so easily? That is who you want to be this week.
From the being comes the doing which leads to the having. Being always comes first.
So, who are you going to be this week?
I am going to be creative, passionate, purposeful and fun. There’s going to be a lot of love and laughter in my week. My outcome is to get the webinar for my new program written & recorded (that’s a big ask, so I need to get my skates on if I’m going to get that done! I’ll definitely need to be purposeful!) and keep on with the daily content. I’m going to talk to all of the kids at least 3 times and I’m going to have a fabulous birthday (Thursday!). I’m also going to get everything organised so that we have a wonderful holiday in a couple of weeks. And do all the other bits and pieces that come up, but that’s the summary.
Remember, focus on what’s important to you. What’s coming up for me in that list is that I’ve missed off two things: myself and my husband. I’ve covered business & finance (the webinar & content), I’ve covered my family & socialising. But I don’t have anything in there about two very important areas: me and John.
This is really important: make sure that whatever you have down in your creation for the coming week covers everything that’s important to you. For me, I’m going to do something for myself every day and I’ll create a weekend for John to remember 😜
What are you creating? Let me know
