how to get to the heart of the matter (2 of 3): don’t avoid the pain

Posted on: May 20, 2011

If you want to get to the core of an issue, there’s one simple rule: dealing with it should feel hard. Why? Because you’ve had a block around it that you need to simply delve into – but have been putting it off because of a negative association (e.g., fear of the consequences).

However, once you’re in the discussion – or, possibly when it’s over, it should feel much easier. A weight will have been lifted.

Action: If there’s something you’ve been avoiding, you’ll feel better if you simply face it. Breathe into it. And read part 3.

Part 3: An easy exercise to deal with a difficult problem.
