Well it’s been another long day and I have a huge amount of work to get through later, so I’m just going to take a quick shower to take away the aroma’s of the day. The aroma’s have been sticking to me today much more than the previous day, and I need to start peeling away layers in order to get to the inner aroma.
It’s always the inner aroma that is the best and then I can relax. I could of course just come in, sit here and do the work, but if I just sit and not get changed then I don’t feel the same and I don’t get the same results.
Is it Procrastination?
What on earth is he going on about? Is this a new style of writing approach or is he revealing his new tattoo?
Well, no, that’s not it at all. This is you or I trying to get things done but putting things in the way of what we want to do. Not exactly procrastination, but just a little bit of well putting a layer on top of another layer, wearing it all day and then taking it off again.
We do this all the time. We see something we like, try it on, put it back, pick it up, smell it, put it up to the light to see through it and then buy it or throw it away. I get like this when I really want something but I cant afford tom buy it. I get like this when I put on my running gear and it starts raining.
I’m being non-committal. I’m not doing what I need to do. I’m not starting what I need to start. I’m not committing myself to what needs to be done, whatever it is.
I’m not putting it off, I am just not doing anything, and we cannot do that. Doing nothing is preventing us from being better than we are. We are not writing great content, not putting efforts into our marketing strategy, not preparing for an advertising campaign, not getting a better website design and not getting more business and therefore not getting any money.
We all do this, we put on layers and we must start peeling away layers, whatever your layers are, as they are stopping you from progression.
They just delay you from producing a script that could make the difference between making a sale or breaking a sale.
They prevent you from taking the photograph that appears on every website, or a headline that is shared around the social world.
We should all focus on what we need to do, get into taking the action required to make a start or a difference to our business.
We prepare without distraction, with total intent and with reverence.
We should push past the blockades, through the masses and hammer our flag into the ground at the top of the hill, so all around can look and admire.
Peel away your layers today!!
