Progress Killers that Keep You from What You Want [EP:081]

You want to make some changes. There are some good, healthy boundaries that you know will help you lead and live better but you just can’t seem to gain momentum. I want to share with you 4 progress killers that keep you from making the changes you want.

We wait for the perfect time.

We wait for just the right time before we make changes. We decide to wait until things slow down. We think it’ll be easier once we push through this busy season, or once a certain obligation is finished.  We wait until things are perfect!  But guess what?  It’ll never be perfect! There will never be a perfect time. If you don’t put in the boundaries you need, new obligations and new seasons of busyness will steal your space and margin.


We have an all or nothing attitude.

Many of us approach change and progress with an all or nothing attitude. If there is just one time we can imagine when the boundary or rhythm won’t work, we don’t even try! We could do it 95% of the time, but we let the 5% stop us.

We are afraid.

We are afraid to make changes. We fear what others think, we're afraid we'll forget to get something done, we fear missing out on an opportunity. The list is endless!

ACTION STOPS FEAR. When you take action, even when you are afraid, you gain momentum. 


We try to change everything.

We go all in and decide to make massive, sweeping changes...and then everything goes haywire! Slow and steady wins the race. You can make significant progress by taking small, consistent steps over time.
