Getting Past The When/Then Barrier

What are you waiting for? No, really, what *exactly* are you waiting for?
Christi Hegstad January 23rd, 2020

I’m almost embarrassed to admit one of my biggest lessons of 2019.

As I sat down to conduct my year-end review last month, I noticed an interesting pattern, particularly in the first half of the year. I’ll call it ‘when/then’ and it sounded something like this:

> WHEN I get past this event, THEN I’ll focus more on my habits and goals.

> WHEN I am inspired, THEN I’ll create the content.

> WHEN I feel ready, THEN I’ll [insert any number of actions here].

The result? I delayed my own success in a couple of areas that are actually quite important to me.

I didn’t beat myself up over this, but I *did* get curious and ask myself what I want to do differently this year.

Thus came one of my new Guiding Principles:

Just Do The Thing.

When I know it’s right, and it matters, and it’s aligned with my purpose and values, I am committed to taking the action.

Because you know what? There will always be things that try to block us – whether that’s an event or a belief or a fear. Our job as purposeful, difference-making achievers is to acknowledge those bumps in the road but not to let them keep us from doing what we’re here to do.
