Think, take a break, and then just do it!

imagesYesterday I had this urge to start something new. And I didn’t. I went on with the day-daily stuff and felt quite unsatisfied at the end of the day. And it started so well: I was aware of the urge to start something new, and I had already some great things in mind that I could do. So why didn’t I?

As always, I had plenty to do. There is always more to do than there are hours in a day. It’s about setting priorities, and obviously my priorities are not to start something new.  Same goes for cleaning the house, do some work in the garden, etc. The strange thing is, that all goes well if I don’t plan it but just start to do it.

This reminds me of a research I read about some time ago. It was about three groups of people, they all to solve the same problem. The first group had to solve it in one hour, the second one in ten minutes, the third one got one hour but was interrupted after ten minutes. The last group did perform the best, came with the best solutions.

Maybe that’s what did go wrong yesterday: because I was aware of the urge, I started to think too much. It almost became a duty to me that I wanted to avoid. So today I stop thinking at a certain point and just do it!
