Being self-employed, like most everything in life, has advantages and disadvantages, right? Some of us tend to not wear all of the necessary hats equally well and sometimes avoid putting some on at all.
A wise, self employed friend recently told me that she does one challenging task daily, one that that is frustrating, unpleasant or a struggle, the kind that you think you can't do or do well, that feels constricting and causes dread, brings on procrastination and gets you reaching for the cookie jar, distracted by social media or running outside, far from your computer.
You know what? I'm finding that she's right! The surge of energy, the sense of accomplishment, then relief that follows is empowering, when taking on even the smallest of actions. The “yuck” responses within me are lessening, as new skills increase. I'm liking not carrying the weight of avoidance and making more progress with goals and intentions.
