Confusion Keeps Us From Taking Action

by Michael Berry on December 5, 2014

We’re living our life attempting to create success and we know there’s certain things we need to do and a lot of times we feel procrastination. And it’s very easy to let the procrastination get the best of us and it’s also easy to not understand where that’s coming from. But a lot of times it’s just basically being confused. If we have confusing about what we need to do, why we should be doing it, or how something fits in to the bigger picture we can find ourselves not being able to take action because we question should we do it, shouldn’t we do it. We can’t weigh the value of taking the action. This takes an enormous amount of mental effort. It actually accounts for the most of the amount of mental effort that most people feel in trying to do anything. We can look back to anything new we attempted to do. It takes a lot of effort in the beginning.

I remembered when I first learned how to ski. It was so strenuous and so hard because I was actually fighting myself. Going down the hill I don’t know whether I should be leaning froward, backward, sideways. I’m was in an unfamiliar territory. I’m having to work very hard both mentally and physically because I’m literally fighting myself. But the more you ski obviously, the more you do anything the clearer you get, the less confusion you have and the only energy that’s exerted  is that which is required to get the result.

Doing anything in our life takes on these characteristics and confusion is absolutely the enemy of action. And if you’re finding your self stuck and you’re finding yourself not moving forward at the rate you could, find where you’re confused, find where the confusing is. It can be simple, simple things that will ultimately leave us stuck. But even the simple things have the ability to have power over us even if we don’t understand.

Many of us find ourselves confused at one time or another. At times we cannot avoid confusion but then it is good that we come out of confusion by taking quick action. When we are confused we waste a lot of valuable time that can never be recovered.

As always Jane you got it. We just have to recognize when we’re confused.
