1) Defensiveness. Wait a minute, how can you say I'm not productive? Look at all this stuff I've done. You better believe I'm productive.
2) Visualization. How do I know I'm not productive? If I were productive what would that look like? Spend some time imagining myself as being productive.
And both of these patterns draw me towards greater productivity, instead of pushing it away.
Oh yes, and I am good at defensiveness already, I shouldn't have a problem with that!
I just meant that if someone points one of my flaws out to me, I will also think, 'ugh, I dont like that feeling of knowing i'm like that, I want to fix it', and prove to them they are wrong! I think this will work
I'm so excited about this finally!
Oh, I thought you said you found one that was for 6 months. Yah, going for a week at a time could get pretty pricey.
Well the longest the organic farms go is 6 months, (or until September), you can join one anytime IF they have the accommodation for you but they say in order to guarantee a spot, you should sign up in April. But that's just for the farms, there are other programs that involve working at resorts, bed & breakfasts, people's homes, it's all involving doing some type of work in exchange for free rent and meals. And those go year round and I'm not sure on the length of stay for those, I think they vary with each place, whatever the owner wants.
