This is the question that I post above my desk.
I have had a lot of fun starting my private practice, and yet there are moments when I get stuck. Here are few examples.
A) I’m faced with an extremely boring task (like setting up bank accounts or getting insurance)
B) Things seem complicated (learning about marketing)
C) I need to make an important decision
In each these things I can distract, delay, or get stuck in analysis paralysis. In those moments I have started to ask myself, “What if this was easy?” That simple reframe often helps me shift from the place I’m stuck and make progress.
Have you ever made the process of making a decision overly complicated? Me too. When I shifted to giving myself the option of making it easy, the steps dissolve from 14,000 steps to 3 steps instead.
I have found the use of this phrase help me in my business and also in my personal life. Really anytime I notice the stress level or procrastination level rise.
Pick a time today when you find yourself heading towards frustration and overwhelm and ask yourself, “What if this was easy?”
