How to Feel Like Doing
What You Say You Want to Do
Anyone who wants to figure it all out before taking action, delays unnecessarily. Read In the Mood, by Seth Godin. He points out that we aren’t lacking information. But we are lacking the proper mood to do what we want to do.
How do you get in a good mood?
What’s present when you’re eager to do the right work?
The short answer is: an abundance of good feelings.
What creates the good feelings?
Often in small business coaching, I’ve noticed certain ingredients that nourish a good mood. Without these ingredients we’re more prone to mood swings.
Coaching is an accelerator because it creates a supportive environment that gives the clients exactly what they need, when they need it.
Create the right environment and you can accelerate your life and business. Feed on regular doses of these five ingredients, and your good mood will be nourished.
As social animals, we thrive on positive recognition. When unrecognized, we question our own value.
Wisdom requires fresh understanding. Without realizations, or the occasional epiphany, we don’t know what we newly know. Thus we cannot adjust in areas where we remain unaware. Rich, questioning conversation encourages realizations.
When we aren’t clear about what we want, our first work is to determine what we want.
In order to feel good about the work we’re doing, it’s necessary to make and acknowledge incremental progress. If we don’t feel like we’re getting anywhere, we probably aren’t.
This is your back up system. All things can’t be done out of the duty of accountability, but sometimes it’s needed to prime the productivity pump. Completion is more accessible with an accountability partner who cares enough to be both firm and encouraging.
In the mood for a commenting?
I’m curious, which of these ingredients are you starving for? Which are you getting fulfilled?
