Patterns! We all have them, we all repeat them and most of us don’t use them to our advantage. I’m always saying that if you have a pattern of behavior or experience that’s coming up for you time and time again, then what you essentially have is a crystal ball… you can predict the future in advance! And that means that you can get to thinking about how it is you would like things to go and dedicate yourself to actioning a solution.
This episode is a storytime one where I take you through my most recent clinic experience and identify a pattern in myself that I have since called Day Two Syndrome.
Day Two Syndrome goes something like this:
1. I have a 3 Day Clinic
2. On Day 2, I come up against an internal feeling (resistance) that’s familiar to me
3. Post-ride I feel something that I call positive or construction frustration where I know that I had the ability to do better than I did (not in an Itty Bitty Shitty Committee way, but in a fair analysis way)
4. I go in for Day 3 ready to bust out of those comfort zone blocks and step up to the plate (cue all of the home run metaphors)
I’ve been three Day Two Syndrome on the last couple of clinics I’ve been to and as a consequence, have put a plan in place that I believe will allow me to not only recognize the process sooner but navigate it more easefully and skillfully when it does.
And what’s more, I’d love to hear about any patterns you might be stuck in and how you can initiate your own Day Two Syndrome remedy also!
