What are your gut feelings about what you should be focusing on or doing this week, month or quarter?
Have you taken any time for yourself (real time for yourself) to notice?
I’ve noticed a desire to slow down right now.
Saturday was the funeral for my father-in-law and it was a beautiful time of remembrance of his life.
People keep asking how I am and I respond with “good” and “fine”.
I respond this way not because I want them to feel better, but because I really am good and fine.
I’ve noticed part of me thinking that because I am “good” and “fine” I should jump right into “normal” life.
My head keeps telling me to do more things, update my plan for the first quarter with ideas I’ve had in the last 10 days, and put solid dates and plans into the calendar for 2019.
And yet, I’ve felt the desire to slow down.
The desire to slow down comes from a deeper place.
From this deeper place, I’m being asked to put a hold on the PLANS I want to create now because they’ll change in a week or two.
From this deeper place, I’m being asked to recognize that even though I really do feel good and fine, I need some time before I jump back in 100%.
From this deeper place, I trust that taking this time now will serve me better than PUSHING through and DOING-ALL-THE-THINGS.
There won’t be a Wednesday LIVE with Evie this week and it may not return until February.
However, I’ll still be showing up here each week with a note like this one.
And while today’s note isn’t an overt productivity tip, it is a productivity reminder to listen to your intuition and notice what you need.
YOU are the driving force of your business and taking the time to notice and honor what you need is important.
What guidance does your intuition (or gut or whatever your name for it is) have to share with you about the upcoming weeks?
If you would like to share I’d love to see your responses in the comments below!
