Guest Post At The Change Blog: “Letting Go Of Your Ego At Work”

I’ve just published a guest post at The Change Blog called “Letting Go Of Your Ego At Work,” which addresses the puzzling question:  why is it that, when we’re doing something that’s deeply important to us, we actually tend to procrastinate the most?

I hope you enjoy it and that you had a great weekend.

    Hi Chris.
    “Why is it that, when we’re doing something that’s deeply important to us, we actually tend to procrastinate the most?” I only procrastinate when there is something I have to do that I’m not interested in doing. If it’s something that’s real important to me I can’t wait to get to it. The only thing that might stop me is if there was something even more important… or something of higher priority. Too bad that all the things we like to do are not always priority items, eh? :)

    And now… for the guest post…

    Hi Chris .. I like what Davina says .. it is so true .. it’s knuckling under to do what we don’t like first and then getting on with our passions ..

    See you over at the Change Blog – Hilary

    Hi Davina — I can definitely get how a project you see as “something I have to do but I’m not interested in doing” wouldn’t feel easy or enjoyable to do. When I read that, I imagine an authority figure demanding that you do something and you resisting. I wonder what has you see the activities you’re talking about in this way.

    Hi Hilary — I suppose knuckling under is one way to see it — and, when I read those words, I feel kind of collapsed and defeated, as if someone else is pushing me to do the project and I’m surrendering to their will. I wonder if there is a more empowering way to see the project that acknowledges that it’s a product of our choices.

    Hi Jannie — looking forward to seeing you there! Okay, actually, I guess I already did and I’m simply responding to comments in an egregiously untimely manner. :)
