For example, I do not like sending out invoices. It’s paperwork that needs to be done, but it’s dull. However, I really like getting paid. When I focus on how I will get paid sooner if I send out invoices sooner, it makes the task more tolerable.
The same can apply to our personal lives. I like having a clean, uncluttered house. (I do not think I am obsessive. My husband might disagree.) I hate house cleaning. When I am cleaning house and focus on how much I do not want to do it, it makes a disagreeable situation worse. When I focus on how great the house will look when I am done, and how good that will make me feel, the situation is better.
Are there things in your life that you do not like to do? Would it help to focus on the results rather than the unenjoyable task?
