It’s Monday. A day when it may be hard to get motivated.
This is the day when my girlfriend and I help some kids at a local school with their homework.
I don’t do much. I encourage. Sometimes I don’t understand what they are doing. So I ask questions, They like teaching me. I am their body double. It’s a psychology concept I heard about from a friend. I don’t understand how it works, but it does. I have seen it in action.
Was called to a friend’s home who could not get motivated. Soon after I arrived they jumped up, got a vacuum and cleaned with vigor. On another occasion went to visit a client with a lot of paperwork and a deadline. Once again, soon after I arrived they were on a mission. I simply offered a few words of advice and marveled at how empowered they were.
The body double works.
Having trouble getting going? Invite a friend or colleague into your space. You may help each other. Happy Monday!
