How to Catalyze Your Progress

Do you ever feel like your wheels are spinning but not getting any closer to where you want to be?

I sure do.

Quite often, actually.

And my usual response is to try to do more (and try to do it all faster).

What about you?

Here's the thing. Usually, I'm packing more sh*t into the car and stepping on the gas with the emergency brake on.

Brilliant, don't 'cha think?

Of course not. But I do this more often than I care to admit (and catch my clients doing it more often than they'd like to think).

What to do?

I think it helps to stop stomping on the gas and asking myself, "Isn't that interesting...?"

This creates a pause so I can calm down, zoom out, grab some context, and be less reactive and more responsive.

When I notice, name, and navigate, I find it's time to employ the power of pruning

Less is more.

And productivity ≠ progress.

Now I can remember what I really want and define my plan to get closer.

And finally, I can remember to release the emergency break and continue to endeavor onward.
