Chapter 3: ENGAGEMENT: Engage Commitment... > BREAK THE FEEL-GOOD ADDICTION

BREAK THE FEEL-GOOD ADDICTION

How does a busy woman cope with the mounting demands and pressures of achieving her passionate vision while, all around her, life intrudes? In today's world, you're constantly sabotaged by nonproductive energy-wasters. Wicked success will not wait for you to finish the dishes, or finish that already well-written report, or finish voting for your favorite on Dancing with the Stars.

Because we like to feel good, many of us gravitate toward what's easy instead of what's productive. I call this the feel-good addiction. We are addicted to majoring in minor accomplishments, niggling away our time, surfing the Internet, watching TV, hanging out on Facebook, losing ourselves in FarmVille or Angry Birds.

As I write this chapter, my garden is suffering from the devastation of our winter freezes. I desperately want to share my woes with my thousands of friends on Facebook. I know they'll understand, and it will feel good to read their empathic messages. Then there's the email stacking up in my box.
