So, I just had an epiphany, and wanted to share it with the group.
I need to slow down.
I’ve been SO excited with Scholars, and I want to soak it all in and do it ALL. NOW. I want to be a life coach. I want to write books. I want to start a business. I want to change the world. But what I realized is I’m spending so much time learning (I’m a Learner… it’s my #1 trait).. and I think this is hindering my progress, not helping it! That has never been a problem for me before!!!
I am, as you frequently warn us, spending all my time on learning, and very little of it on APPLYING. Learning alone HAS helped me, but really not to the extent it will when I take the time to fully apply it. Today, I realized that I am not in a hurry. I do have the time to really dive deep and get MY brain straightened up a bit before I try to help others. I am 41… ideally, I have a long time left on this planet to help other people, to decide what my target demographic will be, to narrow down my business model, to do the Coach Certification (which I REALLY want to do, but I need more time on ME first). And, in reality, I have more than 100 pounds left to lose. THIS needs to be my focus. Because I’m no good to anyone if I die young and fat.
So, here we go, day 1 again. I’m committing to an hour a day to work on ME. If there is time left over, I’ll dream about the future.
