Dream Procrastinator wants life to be hassle-free and recoil from anything that may be difficult. They want to coast through life.
Wouldn't that be wonderful to coast through life! As an early widow, I did not want to do the tough stuff either. Asking questions made me feel stupid. I have learned to ask the questions because one person can not know it all. When I figured out getting out of my comfort zone and had to learn a new "thing," it was good for me. It made me appreciate what I did know.
When I was thinking about starting a business, I thought I was crazy. There was so much to it. Would I eat, pay my bills, get health insurance and, such. Honestly, it made me stronger. And I started asking questions about things I did not know. I asked myself what the worse thing that could happen if I started this business and was not successful could, or would I be able to close it and get a "job was". My answer was "yes " I had skills I could go back to Corporate American if need be. But the best thing I have learned to surround myself with folks who can answer my questions. Some days I still dislike technology, and all financial tasks can be terrifying plus dealing with all the paperwork of a small business. But I am doing it.
What did I learn to do as a dreamer procrastinator in this book? What were my stumbling blocks in getting started? What would be the consequences? How did I learn to overcome them? I sometimes have a fear of the unknown. I let a problematic thing or project become a GIANT Monster.
I dreamt of the outcome and panicked and convinced myself I couldn't do it. I have learned just to try it. My first hoarding family, I was scared by the task ahead of me. I had put the scary beast aside. And take one job one session at a time. Honestly, it was easy once I just stop dreaming of the perfect outcome. I realized some organizing sessions would not leave the homes complete. These homes would take several visits to make them clutter-free. It would take time, but so worth it.
As you read this chapter, pay attention to your stumbling blocks, your scary monsters blocking your progress. Stop dreaming of an ideal job/project. Is it too easy? No challenges? Do you have any "out your comfort zone" projects? What can you learn from this project?
So much valuable information in this chapter if you are a dreamer.
