Why put in the effort?
I could ask that myself that question many times a day. Most things that I want to do, get done on my personal automatic- setting system. I want to do something and so I do it. The more I want it, the more effort I am willing to put into it. When something is not important to me then I do not want to waste my time, effort or “kishkes” on it.
However, what happens when what I desire is important but the work that I have to do is more than I am comfortable doing? (Comfort here is a big issue with me. Given a choice of being comfortable or not being comfortable 99% of the time, I will go for comfort.)
So how do I chose when to leave my comfortable comfort zone? What end result is ultimately worth the effort?
The key for me is that It has to be something VERY important, something that I will miss greatly if I do not do it.
So that is my opening for this discussion. I prefer to see myself as speaking to you rather than formally writing... (I hesitate to call it a blog, it sounds too demanding for my sensitive, not wanting to make commitment, self.)
Nonetheless, I’m putting in the effort because it’s worth it for me to write whatever it is I feel like writing about, if it can help someone. Because I really want to help people, because I really want you to see that with just some self-awareness and some tweaking of what you are doing, you can live your dream!
I have been working with people for decades with the intent of helping them have happier relationships and happier lives. And it can be done! You are invited to join me on my journey.
It is worth the effort!
