Ep #11: All about Avoidance

This week’s episode topic is brought to you by one of The Lawyer Stress Solution podcast listeners. Jessica from the U.K. wants to know the best ways of dealing with avoidance.

When you avoid something, you know that you should do it, and yet you continue sidestepping the task, even if you know it will make your life much better when it’s completed. With procrastination, you eventually do the thing. With avoidance, you may NEVER do it.

On this episode, we explore what makes you avoid tasks and how to change that habit. Join us on the show as I lay out a step-by-step process that will help you deal with any task you’re avoiding and finally get it done!
