The critical voices in our own heads are far more vicious than what we might hear from the outside. Our “inside critics” have intimate knowledge of us and can zero in on our weakest spots.
You might be told by the critics that you’re too fat, too old, too young, not intelligent enough, a quitter, not logical, prone to try too many things…
It’s all balderdash!
Some elements of these may be true, and it’s completely up to you how they affect you. Inside critics are really just trying to protect you. You can:
Learn to dialogue with them.
Give them new jobs.
Turn them into allies.
You can also dismantle/exterminate them.”
S.A.R.K., Creative Companion: How to Free Your Creative Spirit
Have you ever heard anyone say, “What are you waiting for?” What was your answer?
Getting started can take a lot of purposeful energy. Big projects can wait after all there is time. That tends to be the belief that projects that are to be completed sometime in the future aren’t important to start today.
Need a new job and you’re waiting for something else to happen and then it’s suddenly too late to say, “I have a job and I’m looking.” Waiting often causes regret and at the same time there isn’t that desire to do it now.
If you took that project and divided it into smaller projects and set due dates that were more immediate that would make that big project less daunting and doable. Small easy projects that can be done quickly offer small rewards now.
