It’s very easy to find ourselves running on autopilot and not really properly aware of the beliefs and patterns of thought that are running the show for us. I had an interesting reminder of this earlier in the week while watching a TED talk.
This week I’ve decided to use video for my blog rather than writing my thoughts down. It’s an incredibly brave step for me, and as I write this brief introduction, I can hear my perfectionist/inner critic chattering away in the back of my mind with statements about how I really need a haircut, I look terrible on camera and I hate the sound of my own voice. However, I’m doing my best to ignore her as she’s rather unhelpful at times like this. This week is all about the unfairly high standards we can sometimes set for ourselves and how easy it is to run on autopilot. I hope it’s helpful, and if you want to also check out the TED talk I mention you can find it here.
