Your inner boss

When it comes to getting things done, many of us are quite harsh with ourselves.

It’s as if we have an inner boss who is a tyrant.

Our inner boss says we have to do things right now, or else!

When we make a mistake, our inner boss is cruel and harsh.

This mean inner boss is the whole reason we procrastinate.

The great thing is that it doesn’t have to be this way.

What if your inner boss spoke in a soft, quiet, kind voice?

Lately I’ve been imagining my boss is Fred Rogers from the old kids show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.

He is extremely patient and kind with me.

He only gives me one thing at a time to do.

When I’m frustrated or sad, he is compassionate and sweet.

Using your imagination, you can make your inner boss however you want!

With Mr. Rogers as my inner boss, I don’t have anything to resist.

In fact, the real Mr. Rogers once said this:

“There’s a world of difference between insisting on someone’s doing something and establishing an atmosphere in which that person can grow into wanting to do it.”

Doing things doesn’t have to be stressful.

Doing things can be healing.

Take care,

If you want to explore how to do things in a healing way, I teach this every week at 11am Denver time on Sundays.

We meet for an hour in my Joy of Doing coaching group. It’s only $47 a month.

Starting in January, we’ll be revisiting my 8 Principles of Joyful Doing from the beginning.
