Mid-July 2019 Newsletter

Hello, and a marvelous joy-filled Mid-July to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. Today's issue is about tackling overwhelm by just doing a tiny bit. Enjoy!

Just do a little!
 confused image Whatever you're hoping to accomplish, from beginning a new exercise program to cleaning a cluttered closet or desk, to finally looking at that pile of overdue bills, it's easy to get overwhelmed. There's so much to do -- where should you start?

A common reaction to a large task is to stay very busy doing other things. Yes, it might give you some temporary satisfaction to visit that sick neighbor you barely know, or to do the laundry or vacuum the clean rug, but some part of you knows you're avoiding the big task. This doesn't feel good, and will likely wipe out any good feelings from completing the small chores.

 can't to can Another common way to avoid a big task is to procrastinate, putting it off into the future when you think you'll have more time. This can feel like an excuse, and it often is. You don't have to go to the gym for 3 hours straight (most gyms have half-hour classes), or wait until you buy the perfect workout outfit. There's no time like the present!

One of my favorite teachers, Carol Look the EFT Master, is fond of asking "What's the up-side to that unwanted behavior?". You continue to avoid that task, yet say you really want to do it. What's that buying you? This is worth exploring. Maybe you like the attention you get when you complain about it? Or maybe you don't want to look more productive than an easy-going or disorganized friend, and cause a conflict?

 balance Most of the people who've worked with me, and many of my friends, are used to hearing me talk about baby steps. Rome wasn't built in a day, and projects often take longer than we expect. (The latter may be a corollary of Murphy's Law.) The journey of a thousand miles begins with that first step, but you have to take one step to get underway!

There's no shame in starting small, and savoring little or partial successes. Baby steps are better than no steps at all. The old joke "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!" applies here. Wolfgang von Goethe said "Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it." Why not be bold, and clean up merely one corner of your messy desk? Like Nike says, just do it.

Here's a story about just doing a little bit to improve vision, from a lesson I gave years ago. To read it, click here.

Please send me your questions and comments
Let me know what you've wondered about concerning energy medicine or vision or dreams. I'll be glad to write a short article addressing that topic. Thank you to those who have sent me questions, or see a question you asked me in a private session written about here. You're helping many other people! Enjoy the rest of your July. I'll write again in a few weeks. Take care!
