Are you having trouble sticking with a task that you find boring or cumbersome? Like clearing out your email backlog or moving a mess of files into folders. You know how to do it, it’s just making the time to do it. Especially when you’d rather do anything else. So the project sits, unfinished.
This is the reality for many of my clients. And one of the reasons I encourage the use of Action Sessions – a dedicated time together to tackle the “boring” tasks with someone holding you accountable.
That accountability is a big deal for me. Like many people, I tend to get more work done when I know someone is watching me work. It’s why I love having an accountability partner and participating in co-working sessions – they are both forms of body doubling.
Body doubling is a productivity/accountability trick where you have someone present to keep you focused on your task. Your body double may sit there quietly and watch you work, or maybe they are working on their own task while you work on yours. Some body doubles even may carry on a conversation with you while you do a more mindless task like cleaning out your sock drawer. The best thing? Body doubling can be done virtually as well as in person!
“How to ADHD” has a great video about body doubling on YouTube that explains the concept. Or give me a call and we can talk about the benefits. And if you’re one of my clients and you’re still trying to tackle that overloaded inbox, let’s get an Action Session scheduled so we can get that task finished.
Can’t wait to hear from you!
