The REAL Reason WHY You Don't Plan.

Sep 15, 2023

Without a plan, it’s hard to change your life.

Your brain will stay committed to what you’re creating right now.

I’m not a planner. I wake up in the morning going, F*CK! I love the rush of the rush, but it’s exhausting managing myself. And it does feel a bit reckless. I know what I need to do, I just don’t do it. I want to be intentional, clear and focused - but it doesn’t happen because I don’t have a plan.

 Sound familiar? If planning is sooooo important and useful, what's holding us all back? 

We've asked ourselves this very question and here's our answer: Because it’s kind of boring AND it triggers our perfectionism. 

If you’re anything like us, we have competing desires: on the one hand we want to be spontaneous and carefree, we don’t want another to-do or constraint - BORING! 

And on the other, we want a clear path, with goals and benchmarks, so we can take steps to stop feeling so rushed, distracted and overwhelmed all the time. But it has to be in Excel or maybe Trello? Formatted correctly, with the right measurable tactics and followed perfectly, right? 

But when we found coaching it became crystal clear: We can't have what we don't plan for. 

We ARE planners. It’s one of our secret weapons (and the reason why most clients come coach with us). But our brains weren’t fans at first. We felt the same resistance you probably do.

The key to getting started? Working through our #1 boredom and #2 perfectionism. 

Sure, the act of planning sounds boring. But without a plan, we create more of the same. 

So here’s our #hack to beat the doldrums: Remind yourself of your WHY. Why is a future that’s different from your past important to YOU? What is being a planner helping you create? 

Paying attention to yourself again after you’ve stopped prioritizing yourself is the opposite of boring - at least we think so!

And, listen, there’s no such thing as the perfect plan. That inner mean girl who’s constantly busting your chops? We can let her know ahead of time that our plan isn’t going to be perfect, that it’s ok if we skip a few days, if it gets messy, if our tactics miss the mark or if we fail a few times. 

We plan, follow through and evaluate. We adapt and try again. We celebrate the small wins and train our focus on how far we’ve come and where we’re going NOT all the places we’ve fallen short. 

We can’t have what we don’t plan for. So, what do you want to create? Let’s make that inevitable - and do-able - with a plan.
