Cost of time and differntiating between doubt and changing from bike to car


First of all, thank you for your work- I like the model and because I could already see effects in the application while listening to the Podcasts, I have now joined Scholars. I am committed to applying this actively in my life and here is where I am having trouble: Listening to the “How to throw away the to do list”-Podcast episode, Brooke talks about how it is worth pausing to consider a switch of gears and how sometimes it is more effective to stop pedaling on the bike and get in the car. I have a hard time distinguishing between moments when this applies and the state of mind that Brooke describes with self-sabotage (doubt, my brain trying to convince me to change my mind). She talks about the cost of time (and money) if you are second-guessing your decisions (which I can very much relate to). Can you help me find questions I could ask myself to identify whether this is doubt or a necessary switch in gears that will be worth the cost. Example: I am a group leader in academia with many requests and deadlines – going through the to do list and scheduling process, I now find myself spending day 3 at work (after my family vacation with the kids) very much engaged with writing my list of tasks and scheduling. I can decide to view that as a necessary step to become more effective in the future. Or is this just my sneaky primate brain using Scholars to procrastinate and delay/not do the work I need to do to grow in my role at work (which is very important to me). Any thoughts?
