Are you planning or acting?

If you’re in planning/thinking mode, your mind needs to be open, creative, working at a slower pace, so that ideas can freely come and go.


If you’re in acting/doing mode however, your mind needs to be focused, sharp, fast, so that tasks get carried out quickly and efficiently.

These phases can last for minutes or months depending on the nature of your work, but they always require different mindsets.

You need to figure out which phase which you are in, and then programme your mind accordingly.

  1. Thirty years ago when I was “supervising” voluntary youth workers in Sligo town I had a great Supervisor who used to check in with me every month. His question was “Are you driven or are you drawn?” I have kept in touch with that question over the years.
