Looking back to look forward

December 3, 2020

As we enter into the final month of this ‘different’ year, looking back to look forward seems a worthwhile exercise. Noting the distance covered from where we began with our key objectives for 2020 and where we are now, gives us a perspective of our progress.

Setting aside the various obstacles we have had to face, and continue to do so in many instances, looking back to look forward offers us a moment of reflection, also regarding our attitude towards the objectives.

We know whether we have done everything in our power to reach this or that and, also if we are honestly willing to up our efforts in the case of not having hit the targets yet.

Furthermore, looking back to look forward, we are in a position to clarify what we desire for the coming months. Having this information puts us in a strong position to undertake associated actions. Choosing to use the input, remains, of course, something for each of us to decide.

Thanks for reading this ‘Looking back to look forward’ post.

Kindest regards.

Giving ourselves permission to follow our heart

November 26, 2020

Without giving ourselves permission to follow our heart, it is unlikely we will ever do it.

Other people may encourage us to reflect on past successes and sometimes even on failures to establish strengths and weaknesses. Then there are folk who suggest we shouldn’t expect too much from “these trying economic times”.

Considering all this input, giving ourselves permission to follow our heart doesn’t seem too taxing in comparison. Listening to a variety of ideas is fine, provided we remember we are the experts on ourselves.

Ultimately, how we live life depends on our attachment to it and ‘giving ourselves permission to follow our heart’ is no worse a piece of advice than any other but, in all likelihood, much better than most.

To share your thoughts on this issue of giving ourselves permission to follow our heart, please leave a comment below.

Being clear about what we do, and don’t do

November 22, 2020

So often these posts refer to the idea of being clear about what we do, and don’t do. And again today, this theme makes an appearance.

Of course, knowing or being clear about what we do, and don’t do, is all very well but worthless if not acted on. Providing clarity about our activities, refusing certain undertakings when necessary, is related to channelling time and effort.

After being clear about what we do, and don’t do, in terms of promoting ourselves, we can follow the words of Dan Lok, entrepreneur, mentor, motivational speaker, businessman and consultant: “Position narrow, reach wide”.

To explore your positioning as part of a coaching discovery session, get in contact.

Kindest regards.

Moving from everything to something

November 12, 2020

Moving from everything to something implies we have taken the strategic step of channelling our efforts from the general to the specific.

Of course, moments change, and at times we need to juggle activities without completing any. Then again, if this style of work becomes the norm rather than the exception, it is difficult to maintain enthusiasm and motivation around key goals.

Moving from everything to something, on the contrary, underlines the importance of what we want to achieve and puts resources in place to ‘get things done’.

To explore the idea of moving from everything to something as part of a coaching discovery session conversation, get in contact.

Right now, thanks for reading this ‘Moving from everything to something’ post and please like and share it.

Better to start late than never

November 8, 2020

 

It can be frustrating to see opportunities pass us by, occasions we should have grasped tightly slip through our fingers. But instead of beating ourselves up with regret and bitterness, let’s remember it is better to start late than never.

Few situations fall into the category of ‘Now or Never’. And, for this reason, the notion ‘Better to start late than never’ is worth keeping in mind.

Yes, we might miss out on the benefits associated with an early take up of an idea. However, in most instances, by implementing a ‘better to start late than never’ strategy, we outperform, in any case, all those people who never ‘make a move’.

Or not. To share your thoughts on the issue of ‘Better to start late than never’, please leave a comment below.

Kindest regards.
