Have you ever found yourself doing the Avoid-Dance? You know the one where you dance around the chore that you don’t want to do. Is avoidance a form of laziness? Is it a weakness in character? Or, maybe it is fear, stubbornness or perfectionism? Why do we do the Avoid-DANCE? Is it the daunting task that we are resisting; or, is it the fear of the unknown?
Perhaps the task is really not so daunting. Perhaps we just need to get started and take the plunge… a plunge into the Disco of doing… “Do the Hustle” and get it done. DONE is better than PERFECT. Most of the avoidance comes from wanting to do something perfectly because we have been taught that “if it is worth doing, then it is worth doing right!”
Really? Sometimes, it is just a matter of getting it done. You can always go back and edit and refine your work. You are not going to please everybody, ever! And, that is great, because we are all different. Viva la difference. Love and live in embracing difference. If each of us were the same, then we would not need each other!
What we do chaotically (so we think) is going to be better than anyone else who can’t or won’t do it at all. In fact, many people will think we are a freaking geniuses! Yes, there will always be someone better than us. “They” may or may not be satisfied with our efforts. So what; it got done! And, the AVOID Dance becomes COMPLETENESS, which will eventually bring a sense of accomplishment and joy. So, what AVOID DANCE are you doing? How can you turn your AVOID DANCE into a delightful SWING of SUCCESS because you got it done?
