“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens. By www.awakening-intuition.com
Ahhh… the ultimate learner’s creed! It also is a sentiment that comes from all the happiness gurus, positivity mindset coaches, and many business leaders. Take action first is the key component for me here. Take action and learn from the results. They take action on this results and learn again. Rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat, etc…
I spend so much time and energy worrying about stuff that more often than not, I talk myself out of doing anything. Now that is a slippery slope that is so well greased it is hard to stop the downward slide once it’s started. Ok, so maybe you need a little bit of a plan, if you ar building a house or assembling machinery, but there are more decisions we make daily that really don’t require plans. Right now, one of the only places I follow this is in my artwork. I’ve told myself (and others) that my process involves lots of planning in my head, but the truth is more that I soak up tons of ideas and us some of them to spark a new work, but I have a long time ago let go of copying or perfectly imitating what inspires me. I just let the ideas evolve. I’ve been doing this more and more with writing as well.
Ok, so it does occasionally lead to great ramblings, but it is always enjoyable to me, at least. My point is, only when I overthink stuff does it become a greater chore, instead of an intellectual journey. Besides, I’ve started enjoying the challenges of self-editing a little more these days. So, for those tasks that are not so life-and-death; just breathe, let go, and do it.
