Get outside of your own headApr 19, 2021
99% of your problems stem from…
But, here’s the good news!
YOU are also the solution!
Shake those unproductive thoughts and get back to the things that are actually advancing you and your business
You are in control!
There will always be distractions to take you away from what you want to accomplish
Our brain's natural tendency veers you toward those distractions
Because it wants you to avoid discomfort
The discomfort of doing the hard things you know you need to do
But when you overcome the internal struggle and do the hard things, life becomes easier
Try doing this through 'identity based' habits
Like James Clear talks about in Atomic Habits
So rather than focus on the 'tactics' of avoiding distractions like deleting apps, focus on the kind of person you want to be
Say to yourself: "I AM a really productive person", "I AM a good parent", "I AM a healthy person"
By taking on those identities you are more likely to do the hard things you know you need to do
And if you're looking for tactics to avoid distractions then Nir Eyal's book Indistractable offers some great insights
