I just got through working with a client and she said “I got nothing done today” I was amazed and had to take a step back for a few reasons.
This is all-or-nothing thinking. All-or-nothing-thinking serves no one well. And, often times is very limiting.
This particular client’s thought was absolutely inaccurate thinking. She is a go-getter and, in relationship to what others do in a day, she got so much done!
When saying something like this, you are likely doing comparative thinking that serves no one. You are either comparing yourself to others, to the list you made, to demands you placed on yourself. Comparison of any form only leads to limiting and less-than thinking.
Being careful of what you think is so very important. The reason I’m writing this right now? I just spent a half hour ‘getting nothing done’ but here’s what I really did….
So, before you say to yourself “I got nothing done”, write down what you DID do and what you DID get done and celebrate that. Even if it was just breathing and pumping blood~ go celebrate that ~ perhaps you’re comparing yourself to something you shouldn’t or thinking you should get more done than you actually think you can get done in that time.
Have you ever said this to yourself? And, what did you really get done in the last half hour? I bet it was more than you think!
