Do we fall on the swords of our yeses and no’s?

By Lindsay Hindle | Uncategorized

A man with a sword down his throat slides along a twenty-foot pole stopping just inches from the floor (and certain death) just in time.

The [ ________ ] ‘s Got Talent show franchise isn’t just exciting television entertainment.

It’s a curious display of the power of our YESES and NO’s.

This man didn’t just roll out of bed a master of his craft one day.

What inspired vision did that man have to say yes to?
What daily habits did he have to say yes to?
What other distractions did he have to say no to?
What emotional patterns did he have to say no and yes to?

Have you thought about your YESES and NO’s lately, ?

I’ve got my own powerful history of them, including saying:

  • NO MORE to my first business that I had no passionate vision for, but continued to do because I was good at it and had an expensive University degree I could not justify “throwing away”
  • Not this either to business no.2 where I felt passionate about the impact I could make but hated the business model I was restricted to
  • A FULL YES to business no. 3, which is my coaching practice, but with the caveat that I would absolutely NOT DO IT the way I had done things in the past (😉 more on this later)

Making DECISIVE and SOULFULLY ALIGNED YESES and NO’s is one of the first things I work on with people inside my Focus & Follow Through Solution mentorship, which is a six-month group program.

Because what we choose to do with our one precious life is only one piece of the puzzle.

And the roadmap of steps (our strategy of getting “there”) is one piece of the puzzle.

But the most important piece of all is how we get ourselves to show up to the what and how we experience ourselves along the way.

Because even the most divine, soul-centered ambitions can feel anything BUT divine when we’re stuck in the suck without firm, decisive, and soulfully aligned ways of saying YES and No for our highest good – from the tiny daily stuff to the major stuff (like YES or NO to one more project we really can’t handle).

In my next post, I’ll tell you about the YES muscle and include a special invitation to a new video series I’ll be leading all about the 7 Habits to being a Highly Effective, Highly Sensitive Human.

To your soul on fire,

Procrastination vs. Slow Work

By Lindsay Hindle | Uncategorized

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article titled “The Medicine in Slow Work” (find it here). The article celebrates the merits of taking our time in creating our life’s expression and not feel pressured to speed things out the door if we’re not thrilled by that vibe.

But because SLOW WORK can often be confused with PROCRASTINATION, it’s important to know the difference so you can make deliberate, intentional progress in 2020, minus the hustle and minus the procrastination.

Here are some differences between slow work and procrastination:

(1) Slow work isn’t necessarily TIME SLOW as it is presence-rich. We allow ourselves space and time to BE WITH something.

Example: You choose to go for a swim in the ocean because this is where you get relaxed and creative ideas to pour in. You get an instant download from source and it takes a week or two of unpacking and integrating the wisdom to make sense of it or inspire you to create something with it.

In this space, you are not NOT doing anything. You’re actively choosing to BE WITH yourself receiving, unpacking and letting the magic of the message work through you.

Maybe that unpacking takes seconds. Maybe it takes days or weeks or months. Your process has its own unfolding.

Procrastination, on the other hand, is actually time fast and presence-poor.

Because of an instant need TO NOT BE WITH something that makes us uncomfortable, we self-distract as quickly as possible.

Procrastination stops the process of: emergence ➡️unpacking + sense-making ➡️creation ➡️ implementation.

(2) Slow work has its own frequency of patience, curiosity and care, always checking in (pausing) to see if one is in harmonic vibration with self or out of tune and adjusting accordingly

“How do I feel with this? Does it speak to me? Is my highest self present? Am I serving the highest good?

Procrastination has the frequency of NUMBING. “I’ll do anything BUT BE CURIOUS with why I don’t want to go there or do that thing right now.  The only question procrastination asks is:

“How can I get out of this?”

(3) Slow work can have a work/life plan that supports and accommodates the creator and their spacious pace and it can thrive with life-affirming discipline.

You, in fact, can stimulate yourself to be in “receiving mode” or “creating mode” or “implementing mode”, these states don’t always happen on a mere whim (or when the lightning strikes as they say).

Procrastination, on the other hand, is a wild beast and won’t be contained. More like an unruly child that simply throws itself on the floor saying “You can’t make me” it quickly spirals out of hand into the comfort of numbing inertia.

Now I’d like to hear from you!

Is this breakdown helpful? Are you prone to procrastination? How do you see yourself moving into 2020, are you thirsty for slow work or are you eager for a speedier “hit the ground running” kind of vibe?
