Contemplating a daunting task...

I never thought mirror work would be such a daunting task.

I took this leadership class early this year, it is almost a year-long and we have daily assignments and agreements to complete the program.  So here I am, one month left and I am suppose to do mirror work.  Suffice it to say, the mirror work assignment was something I was to complete by the first weekend and I put it off.  I am finding this to be a reoccurring theme in this program and in my life.  I realize how much I avoid things that either scare me or I just 'don't want to do,' for some reason or another.  It's like there's this brick wall, and I just let the wall be there and either stand there waiting, or decide to go around it without really doing what is important to learn what I need to learn in life.

So, here I am, down to the wire, something I must do, memorize a poem and practice a script in front of a mirror for a couple of hours.  It doesn't sound like much, but it is a daunting task for me.

Instead of doing what I should be doing, I sit here writing in my blog, catching up on e-mails, getting another cup of coffee (to sooth my mind, I tell myself), put another load of wash in the washer and move the clothes that are clean in the dryer.  Not to mention checking facebook for the umpteenth time.  I read some more blogs and sit here contemplating the daunting task.

Will I make it through the short script this evening in front of my peers and coach?  Will I stand in front of them, share my stories vividly?   Will I make an impact?

Stay tuned...

I think you are doing the right thing, relaxing can help you think much better things to do and doing it right because your mind is clear. And according to what I've read, there are things you may consider so you can perform better if your body is in the right condition and if it is healthy too. I clean building mirrors everyday but I stay healthy because of a zinc supplement and a regular exercise, eating the right food is good too.
