Balancing our actions against our results

January 27, 2019

“Go, go, go!”, “Keep on keeping on!” and so we strive, push and hammer away, often without balancing our actions against our results.

But being clear what the impact our actions are producing is also a valid approach. Balancing our actions against our results ensures we don’t end up at the wrong destination by investing time and effort inappropriately.

In our hearts, we know when it is time to quit an endeavour or, at least, alter our emphasis, for the sake of reaching our desired goals. Ignoring such input could be a foolhardy thing to do bringing any number of unnecessary stresses and challenges.

Yet there will be occasions balancing our actions against our results can only be accomplished after our input. In such instances, we have to accept this scenario as it is and trust we are moving in the right direction now and with subsequent efforts.

So, to conclude, perhaps we should each assess the extent we are balancing our actions against our results as part of our daily mindfulness practice. To evaluate your situation within the context of a coaching conversation, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Kindest regards.
