Are You In Your Own Way?


The grounding of the Ever Given in the Suez Canal might just be a metaphor for life - how can you get out of your own way and restore flow to your life?

Procrastination is my biggest obstacle, and all the to-do lists in the world (and I have a lot of them) aren't helping me get things done.

I need to remove bottlenecks by focusing on the tasks that get me closer to my goals.

I need to define processes and systematise everything - not only to improve my workflow but to allow me to delegate things so I focus on the work that ONLY I can do.
