When I don’t know what to do

11 Jul

When I don’t know what to do, I tend to not do anything.  A great idea one minute can disappear very quickly and I don’t even know it’s gone.  And then some day way later I remember and wonder what the hell happened to it.

This happens with my book, with work, with even thinking about a relationship, or with anything else new..

So, what can I do about it?  What can I do so that the things I am passionate about but I’ve never done before do not disappear?

Suggestions I have received:

  • Explore the topic – make it fun and not significant
  • Ask for help
  • Chunk out managable tasks
  • Take an action without trying to get it right
  • Do something small
  • Figure out what I am willing to be “ordered” around
    • this needs a little explanation I think – I have been “ordered” around not getting criticized, being liked, and being “good”  – this gets me no where, I’ve decided.  I don’t get what I want and people get mad and upset anyway.  So, I have decided to be organized around something new – Today I am being organized around LOVE.
    • And, this is important for me today since my sister is in town.  I think she is mad at me and I am going to respond with love instead of what I really want to do which would be to completely tell her off.  Wish me luck with this.
    • And, there is someone at work who is acting the same as my sister.  I really want to let this person have it as well, but I am going to be organized around love instead.
    • Actually, that’s bull shit.  I’m not really being that good.  I am just ignoring this person for now.  So I can’t say I’m REALLY ACTUALLY doing the love thing.  But it sounds good, right?
    • And now that I’ve been truthful about my nastiness maybe I’ll have some freedom.  We will see.

OK, that’s enough.  I will explore this topic more at a later date.  Gotta go.  Have a great night!!!
