Have you been putting something off lately?

Perhaps you have been meaning to get around to it but every time you make some time to action it something else comes up, and yet again you are unable to get that one thing done.

Do you think it’s a lack of time, or resistance, or a bit of both? Generally, for me it’s a bit of both. Time is valuable, isn’t it? Everyone is busy running from one responsibility to the next so time is definitely a valid reason to have those pesky jobs hanging around.

The resistance piece comes from the belief that it’s just going to take too long! I overestimate and exaggerate the amount of time I will need to complete a task and spend far more time thinking about how long it’s going to take rather than just getting on with it. Oh, and sometimes it’s because I just don’t ‘feel’ like it.

The reason I ask is because I have been gingerly stepping around what I call a ‘clutter pile’ in my study for, I’m embarrassed to say, quite a few months! It’s depressed me to see it there, on the floor, each time I come in here to work. Well, tonight, I’m happy to report, I just made myself sort it out. I definitely didn’t feel like it, I definitely didn’t have the time and there was definitely resistance as I would have preferred to have an early night. However, I couldn’t be happier with the result of not risking tripping over it each morning anymore and it FEELS amazing to have that spot nice and tidy now.

What are you avoiding?

What will improve your quality of life each day.

What is that one thing you have been putting off for far too long?

Isn’t it about time?

If you’re anything like me you can think up excuse after excuse, reason after reason, as to why you can’t do something, even though the eventual outcome is more than worth it.

In actual reality, you can have exactly what you want, once you just DECIDE!

I speak to people every day who tell me they have always wanted to get back to piano but life and family obligations have gotten in the way. In fact, they have sometimes been putting it off for years but still have a burning desire to play. That little niggling voice inside their heads just won’t leave them alone and they know they need to do something about reconnecting with their music. They talk about how they love the sound of the instrument and want an easier way of digesting music to what they were taught as a child. They love music but it still feels like a puzzle they just can’t quite seem to piece together.

Soooo have you have you been feeling a bit disappointed in yourself that you still haven’t taken up the challenge of reigniting your love affair with the piano? You definitely have been thinking about it. You definitely really want to.

Maybe you’re dying to get back into piano but have just got a little side tracked with, well, like I say, life.

I get it.

I know what it’s like juggling family and a variety of community obligations as well as looking after everyone but yourself. Well surely now is your time.
