I want to own a breakdown: STRUCTURE AND INACTION. Last week, I had a call with my coach. And what came to light through that call is that I don’t need anymore distinguishing or awareness, what I need is structures and more action. Simple and easy right? Well come to find out, the structures that I currently have in my life have me playing the half game or the “just getting by” game.
It seems kinda obvious after the fact but this became full fledge clear when when I created a structure with my coach to text her nightly to share what was IN and OUT of integrity. And most of the time, I had done about half of what I declared I would do. This consistently plays out all over the place and its been happening for a long long time. I can see how I’ve trained myself and mindset to do the minimum. Another thing I noticed is being out of integrity causes me a lot of angst. It feels dishonest and causes me overwhelm.
I am in process of creating more structures in my life and reevaluating the structures I currently have. And I don’t actually know what this will look like. But I am starting simple. I need structures to keep me focused and not hopping around from email, to forum, to client game, to writing to social media. Most days I don’t even know what I spent my time on. I created time slots where I respond to emails, play client game and in process to create writing time. Second, I created some barriers around work. Giving myself too much time actually has me delay things. I will only work from 9-6pm daily. No more no less, just like at my corporate job. Knowing that I have till 9pm to work does not serve me and my life. I will go to be bed between 9-10pm and waking up at 5-5:30am. I work at my desk everyday, not all over the house. And I not spending time with distractions during the day like cleaning, doing laundry, grocery shopping etc unless really needed. I am committed to generating my ideal day, everyday. I could use support on how to utilize the structures I currently have (like AC) to empower my life and cut the half game game. I will reach out to team tomorrow. I love this structure and team, and cannot envision my life without it, but need to identify how to use it to have all my life work.
I see a lot for team and our participants in this! I think we are all amazing coaches and are great at distinguishing contexts for each other and ourselves. But maybe what we all need is a dose of action and allow that to be access to distinguishing. Rather than vise versa. What do you see for yourself in this conversation? What would more action oriented conversations generate for your participants and your life?
I declare getting hired this week! And creating a breakthrough in structures that has me playing the 100% game.
