All Similar, Each Unique
Each day will bring a different Imagin-Action theme for to you to play with, and today’s Monday theme is the 1st step in the Butt in the Chair Imagin-Action Technique. BitCh IT for short, or Bit-C, if you prefer. The Butt in the Chair Imagin-Action Technique transfers presenteeism to productivity, for if you are there you will be in the mindset to be there. So, what is the Butt in the Chair Imagin-Action technique?
Butt In The Chair
What is the 1st Butt in the Chair Imagin-Action technique? Well, like it sounds . . . plant it! Assign a project to your Imagin-Action studies. Just one project to start. It will give you a comparison to your standard routine with other projects.
- Assign yourself your own deadline to complete this project .
- Assign Same Bat Time Same Bat Channel periods daily for this project.
- No matter what, your butt is to be in that chair the whole time. It can be kind of a trip, so like a road trip, make sure you use the restroom first and have some water or tea set out within reach.
- The only thing you are allowed to think about during your BITCh time is your project ~ like in a car you can’t be in multiple gears at once and still be driving or have an operable transmission.
- Odds are this kind of focus will seem impossible at first.
- All that is asked of you is that for the time you assign in your schedule for your project that you show up, and get your Butt In The Chair. That’s it.
2 weeks to Celestial Groove Glimmers
Show up, and get your Butt In The Chair, and only think about your project, and/or work on it of course, too. That’s it.
Thing is that what usually begins to happen is about 10 minutes before your BITCh time you’ll do an inner nod towards it, and begin naturally moving towards it so you are warmed up prior and on time and ready when you need to be. It’s like a standing meeting. A standing meeting time weekly or daily eliminates scheduling and cancellations and rescheduling as it puts in place a commitment and discipline to be there which can transfer to the topic or project at hand. BITCh is like this, though you are expected to laugh and enjoy being there, too.
Try BITCh for 2 weeks
I set 2p to 5p Monday through Friday for 3 years to complete the original Mystereum Tarot and 48-page LWB on my self-issued 3-year deadline. 3 years was as long as I could give it, initially. At a point between 3 1/2 and 4 years my hand changes. Any art series I am workiing on portalp-moves to transition into the next series. It’s simply a timeframe cycle I’ve noticed, so 3 years gave me a little schedule-slippage wiggle room.
If someone called to schedule a meeting for during those times I would simply say, “Oh, I am COMPLETELY stacked with standings all week. How do your mornings or just after lunchtime look?” You see, it will also get you to be the Master of your own schedule, too, and not be a pushover for the things YOU want or need to be working on. And, if the phone rings during BITCh time, maybe that’s what voicemail is for. Do note whether there are family emergencies n stuff. Don’t guru out your common sense of course.
Especially if you work at home
try closing the door with the rule that if the door’s closed, you’re at the office. Nevermind that it happens to be down the hall. People might not disturb you at your office across town, so groove them to respect the same for your home office. So, that’s it. Butt in the chair, focus only on the one project for the time you have assigned, and don’t go under OR over on your time. Tomorrow holds your next session, and that’s when you’ll get back on the project you have assigned to try this.
Tune in, take the time to make laughter, and find the laughable in any situation
It sets a break or segue from whatever you were doing before like jumping around and shaking being all silly for no reason other than . . . to leave that previous moment or activity’s influence and really start fresh into your next activity. Finding the laughable in no way disrespects even the grieving most difficult times. It celebrates their goodness by bring you even MORE present when you are with them.
