The best strategy anyone can use to get me to do as I am "told" is to at least explain WHY I have to do something. I may not agree with the reasoning, but my empathy will kick in and I'll do it because it will seem to me that someone else NEEDS me to do something for them and I'm a giver and a helper.
So - I have been asked to do something that seems easy, but has proven to be challenging. It's "homework" if you will. But, for some reason I can't do it. Not so much becuase I was told to, but becuase there is something inside me that has slammed on the brakes and I am now stuck. So interesting... why?
I'm going to try though. I tried to get out of it, but once the reason I needed to do this homework was explained I now know I NEED to do it for myself as well as the person who asked for it.
So - I'm gonna' try to start it today.
