Sometimes it’s just hard to get starting doing something, isn’t it?  From my perspective, there are a number of possible underlying issues that make us feel like avoiding the task before us, including feeling overwhelmed and seized up by having so much to do, just not wanting to do something, and feeling like what we do has to be perfect from the start.  Each of these can make us feel like putting things off til later, even when it feels like it’s important to get it done.

Resources to help

I created some PEP processes, videos, and recordings that will really help you get things done and enjoy the process as you do.  The first one helps a lot when you’re feeling overwhelmed by having too much to do and so you can’t seem to get anything done.  The second one helps you feel greater energy, focus, and confidence as you take inspired action.  I think you’ll like them both and they feel great to listen to together.

You might also like the PEP and EFT processes that are part of my Inspiring Life program which is designed to help you achieve a goal that inspires and fulfills you.

I also made a video that goes into more detail about what I think holds us back from taking action; you’ll find it in the videos section at the bottom.  I also made some EFT videos to help you move through each of these issues and you’ll find those below as well.

So, I’ve brought all these procrastination-related resources into this Special Topics page for you.


PEP for relaxing and enjoying the process of getting everything done



At the suggestion of a member, I created this PEP process to help with feeling overwhelmed by too much to do.  I love using this process myself; it’s a great one for when you’ve got a lot to do and you can’t seem to figure out how to get started or get it all done.  It helps you relax and listen to your inner guidance about what to do next and helps you focus on the next step to take and feel more relaxed as you do.

It helps you let go of the stress and overwhelm so you can get things done in a way that feels much more enjoyable, efficient, and effective.  It feels really good and it’s a great reminder that we can focus on one thing at a time and enjoy the process of getting everything done.
