Shoulda, woulda, coulda...
For years I have done this; forced myself to work, forced myself to reply to a difficult email because I 'should', forced myself to work on a project that just isn't working in my mind. All that wasted time has taught me one thing - if my heart's not in it, my mind won't concentrate and my intentions will be way off line, resulting in a poor job and a 'failure' of wasted time and effort.
So now, before I do anything, I activate my intuition - firstly I ask myself 'is it urgent?' if so, then I do it now, I don't put it off, I get it done. If not, then I ask 'do I feel like doing it?' if not then I put it to one side and choose another task, something I have enthusiasm for. Something that needs or fits being done right now. In the same way, if there is something that has been plaguing my mind for a while, I know that I intuitively need to attend to it - this may be a person, a work task or even just a creative project.
As a creative person, I know that anything linked to my work or even creating in the home, needs me to be enthusiastic. I know full well how to bake a cake, for example, but if my heart's not in it, the cake normally ends up a mess because I've rushed it, or I've not paid attention. When I bake with love and effort, I'm more creative and the end result is normally 100 times better.
On the days when I plan according to my intuition and in line with my mood, I am in harmony with myself and I create something far more magical. Plus, these days flow like clockwork. I figure that very little is so urgent, so important, that it can't wait for you to gather some enthusiasm about it.
