A very difficult subject, as it is natural to self-justify and then self- deceive oneself.
It is difficult to self-examine and see ourselves as others see us.
-Procrastination, I can always get it done tomorrow
-I tell myself the lone wolf approach is best – I don’t have to wait on people, check on their work, redo it to my specks. Instead I should delegate non-essential tasks that keep me from my priorities. Use the team approach for more efficiency, more fun and less stress.
-I take on too many projects and do not link them to my goals. I do this to deceive myself of why I haven’t met with success yet (fear of success), but then I do just enough to avoid failure.
In other words, I need to stay focused over the long term on my field of passion.
-I avoid making leadership decisions. I deceive myself into thinking that others are more informed than me and can make better decisions than me. I often find they are not as informed as me. Working on making decisions for me and my best interests rather than farming the task out.
-I deceive myself into thinking I have plenty of time but find out I try to cram too many tasks into the time available, and even less gets done.
DAY 33 – Not fooling around…. decidedly moving forward:snail:
