Why are some tasks so hard?

Why are some tasks harder than others? Is that task itself suddenly that much more challenging that everything else you’re doing? Likely not. What’s different? The way our brains are triggering as a result of it.

This week on the show we’re pulling apart the things that allow us to make some tasks a bigger deal than others. What is it that makes one task evolve into a monstrous clogging task while others breeze by? We pull apart “brain distortions” that impact our thinking and assess our executive functioning challenges that impact our time and process management.

From there, it’s all about attitude — can we really take a step back and approach tasks from the perspective of growth and accomplishment even as we’re struggling to grow and accomplish it? We’ll see this week!
