You Want A Different Outcome, You Need To Do Something Different
You want a different outcome, you need to do something different. I repeated this like a mantra as I marched myself right back into that high tech library, sat myself down in the midst of high schoolers and got myself to work. Sometimes change may seem or feel like the last thing we want or need to do, in fact it feels that way 90% of the time. If we listen to the resistance, we allow our ego to take us straight back to our unhealthy/unproductive patterns and habits. All the while it’s telling us why that makes more sense. Nah ah ego, not this time! I don’t care if all I drum out are semi-developed ideas and half written pages, because what I do know is this - my current tactics have gotten me only so far before it plateaued. I have been living on that empty plateau for the past few months and let me tell you - it sucks. Developing new habits and implementing new strategies - however simple - seem to be met with internal resistance once the novelty and excitement of potential fades away in the face of real action.
