This week’s question comes from Barb Eisele, PCC,Tucson, AZ. at www.lifetransformationsnow.com
Hi Judy, I find myself having all kinds of incredible ideas and I make a commitment to move forward on them. However, I find old patterns of being distracted and not working the new idea into reality. Any ideas or help on this one. Thanks, Barb
Thank you so much for this question, Barb. It speaks to many creative and passionate souls. I have struggled with this in the past, too!
Here are a few questions to ask yourself about your creative endeavors. First of all, where does each idea fit into your bigger picture for your business, assuming your ideas are for your business, and do they align with your mission and core values? In other words, for the sake of what do your ideas want to be born into your reality.
Secondly, and extremely important. . .
Notice what triggers your distractions. Do distractions take over at the point when you don’t exactly know what might be next in moving your project forward to completion? I have personally, as well as many of my creative clients, experienced the uncomfortable “I don’t know what to do next” stage of the creative process when bringing something new into the world.
It is easy to be distracted by things that you know what to do about. These distractions will seduce you away from the important project at hand. I have learned this through my writing. I can get the munchies when I’m not sure about what to write next. If I sit still in the zone of resistance and discomfort, and I decide that I am going for completion, not perfection, I am able to follow through, enjoy the process, and I get it done!
Remembering the joy of satisfaction is a great motivator through the hard times of bursting new ideas into reality. (They don’t call them labor pains for no reason.) The completion energy is expansive and it fuels the next new idea!
I suggest that you find a large artist tablet, without lines preferably, and do the following:
- Map out all of the ideas that have come to you and any new ones as they show up. Refrain from using a linear process to keep your imagination flowing.
- For your business ventures, write out what the bigger picture looks like, the picture of your puzzle, so to speak. It might look like your business model with your intended annual revenue.
- Now, choose, prioritize, and organize, as best you can, the best pathway of completed ideas and projects that will complete your bigger picture. Begin breaking down these projects into bite size goals and tasks to be completed each day, knowing how each one fits into your larger picture. You will begin to have a sense of purpose and meaning to your work, which adds energy and motivation to your project completion as well.
- Declare satisfaction and completion for a job well done! Celebration is essential as it adds energy and joy, particularly when you’ve worked through the distraction phase of your projects! Successful challenges create high self esteem and confidence.
Thank you for asking this timely question that plagues many of us. It costs us plenty in wasted energy, time, and money if we allow distractions to keep us from our mission and purpose.
Love and abundance,
“Dream it, own it, and make it REAL”
