Do the Work of Your Heart

How to Do the Work of Your Heart?

If you’re procrastinating doing the work you need to do, chances are that is not the work of your heart… that which lights you up and kindles your creative fires. Or, it could be that you haven’t yet committed to doing the hard stuff… to creating when you’re tired. It’s easier to come home from work and plop down to dinner and favorite shows than to settle into creating.

Creating is the opposite of consuming, and yet, creating feeds the hungry beast of self far more than consuming ever can. No matter how much we enjoy vegging out to relax to a good movie or favorite series, at the end of the day, it’s creating… pulling from within our well of infinity, that really feeds the soul.

To do the work = no regrets.
To do the work = empowerment.
To do the work = energy.
To do the work = joy.
To do the work = satisfaction.
To delay the work that matters to you is to delay you being more of you.

Do the work of your heart as only you can do!

Most of us creatives tend to always have more on our ‘to do list’ than is humanly possible to achieve within the time allotted. Likely you can relate? This is the challenge of the intelligent and creative mind.

Goal setting is not only about choosing the rewards you want to enjoy, but also the costs you are willing to pay.
~James Clear

The good news is that you very likely can do them all; just not all at once. The important thing is to prioritize and then do the work on your goals, steadily and consistently, in the direction you want to go.

That’s why we created iCreateDaily.

Those who achieve their goals are those who can prioritize, organize and focus on getting things done.

How to Achieve Your Goals

To achieve your goals is to set up a daily and weekly rhythm for doing your art. You need to be willing to pay the price of doing the work. Remember, these are YOUR goals for you. Not someone else’s. If you’re not willing, then it’s not important enough.

And… schedule it, because ‘what gets scheduled gets done‘.

To achieve your goals, you need to do the work. And keep on doing it. Plan, schedule, do. Tweak, plan schedule, do. Repeat. Daily. That’s it!

Show up and Do the Work

This is a simple truism. If you’re working for someone, you show up. Now it’s time to work for yourself. Even if you still have a full time job, in order for the work of your heart to become your full time job, you must show up for yourself.

You must show up for yourself. Who will if you won’t?

Don’t Delay… Pay the Price Because You Must

You will never regret doing whatever it takes to achieve your dreams. But you will regret not trying.

Here’s the thing about “paying the price of doing”, i.e., pushing through the challenge… the difficulty… the extra effort… the pain… the ‘don’t want to’s’…

If you don’t pay the price of tuition to your dreams, you will pay the price of regret.

Delaying gratification deposits credits to your future.

Delaying doing the work that matters to you, racks up debt that will come due… perhaps too late. If there’s something you’re procrastinating, just do the thing. Put your butt in the chair and get it done. Don’t argue about it, don’t excuse it… just get it done and you will have no regrets. #future #goals #business #success

Do the work of your heart as though your LIFE depended on it. Because it does.

The Life that Matters

The life that matters to you is set free to be by the work you do even when you’re tired. Even when there are temptations not to. even when you doubt. Even when you fear. Especially then. When you do the work no matter the obstacles in your way, they tend to evaporate like darkness at dawn.

The life that matters to you is set free to be by the work you do. So do the work.

Our inspiration for the title of this article is Do the Work, by Stephen Pressfield. If you haven’t yet read it, you must. If you have, then read it again… even if it’s just one page daily.

If you’re procrastinating doing something that needs to be done, perhaps it’s not the work of your soul. That’s one signal that something may not be a part of your dreams. If you’re not sure, then give it a go. You will never regret taking the time to create, even if you decide that your passion is elsewhere.

Discoveries live in the ‘den of doing‘.

But if you think it is and you’re still procrastinating, maybe it’s time to push through resistance and do the work.

The cost of tuition to your dreams is cheap compared to the debt of regret.
