"Maybe I'll feel like it tomorrow."
"I don't have the energy for that today."
"I look like crap and didn't put on makeup so I can't."
So many excuses for why today, why NOW, isn't the right time. When do you just have to suck it up and do it anyway?
I'm struggling with that today. I literally just told myself "I'll try tomorrow and hope I feel more up to it."
But I don't know what tomorrow will bring! It could be better. Or it could be even worse! I should just suck it up and do it, right?
But then I wonder about that "should"...is it a "should" that is serving me? Or is it one that's been artificially imposed on me, through upbringing, societal pressure, or internalized ideas of what "success" looks like? Of what "hard work" looks like and its value?
In this case, I think this is a "should" that is actually good for me. Taking video of myself (crappy or not) talking about my business, my story, and my insights will be great for my business long term. Think of all the marketing opportunities! So much content I could recycle and use for weeks! It would be working hard once.
So in this case, yes, I think I will go touch up my appearance (so I feel confident, not due to gendered beauty norms, to be clear!!) and just do the thing. Because my future self will thank me. Because I worked through it by typing it out. Because my dirty secret is that even time coaches struggle with time management.
Breathe deep. Drink plenty of water. You got this!
