Weekly Wellness Update
Week of Oct. 19- 23 - Fall Into Action
What Keeps Us From Action?
If you can do it, should do it, and want to do it, what are you waiting for? Many things in life that we excuse or misplace blame for are not created by what we do but by what we fail to do. Maybe we just procrastinate and just don’t get around to action. Or maybe it’s just a thought, something that we think would be nice to do, but we just aren’t serious about it.
What keeps us from action? Can, should, and want ought to be pretty compelling. Several years ago I was asked by a group of editors to write a book chapter on “Neurobiology of Agency” for a scholarly book. Don’t worry. I won’t burden you here with what I wrote for the book chapter. But that task caused me to reflect on agency from the perspective of the everyday issues of what we do and fail to do.
