About three months ago I decided to put some structure into how I manage my working week. Now I’d always resisted this because I told myself that I don’t like structure that I like spontaneity. That I had to be available for my clients, that any kind of structure would dampen my creativity. So I resisted it for a long time until I decided I had to create a structure that was right for me.
And you know what? It worked an absolute dream.
Which leads me to ask the question to you – what are you resisting and why are you resisting it?
Now, chances are that you can put your finger on it immediately because resistance feels a little bit uncomfortable.
I’ve got a few tips for you because I have a theory that when we resist something, chances are it is going to benefit us.
Tip #1- Ask yourself what is it that you’re resisting
You are probably going to be able to put your finger on it. If not then write it down in a notebook and see what comes up for you.
Tip #2 Ask yourself what’s your reason for resisting it?
You might find some stories that you’ve been telling yourself popping up. See what excuses pop up. What messages you’re telling yourself and see what happens.
Tip #3 – Create an experiment
I’m not the type of person that will tell you to dive in to do something because if it works for me, it’ll work for everybody. But, I do encourage people to test and measure things for themselves. Create a little mini-experiment and see how it works. Tweak things, adapt things, move things around, make it work for you.
Those are my three tips for stopping the resistance. I’d love to hear your comments. Let me know what you are resisting and if you’ve got any tips that you can share.
