So, okay…it’s the beginning of the second week of the new year.
- Do you know where you’re going?
- Did you carefully review 2017 to celebrate certain areas while noting those you want to improve?
- Have you mapped out everything with your daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly goals on your annual calendar?
Some people are able to say they’ve completed everything listed and more. For others, just reading the preceding paragraph makes them break out in hives.
Have you ever driven home only to realize you have no recollection of the journey? You were definitely driving, maybe not even really thinking about anything, just mindlessly on automatic. Most of us have had that experience but do you do it often? Maybe it’s not just the drive home that’s on automatic. Maybe it’s your life.
The Institute of Social and Emotional Intelligence has listed intentionality as a personal competency or skill that allows someone to think and act with deliberate purpose. So, honestly, do you feel strong in this area?
Fortunately, intentionality is a learnable skill and coaching can help. Coaching offers the accountability and structure that allows you to deliberately pursue the plans you have for your child…for yourself. You can’t teach your child a skill you don’t possess.
I saw a bumper sticker that said: “I thought getting older would take longer.” Sadly, there is an abundance of songs and stories telling how quickly time passes.
However, perhaps this is your year—the year you’ve decided to be deliberately present and start really living rather than riding on automatic. If you’re interested in setting up a session in which to talk strategy, click the button below. It’s free and I’d love to listen to your plans and goals.
