The Glass is not Half Full or Half Empty, it is Just Too Big
We all know the expression the glass is either half full or half empty. It is used as a question to gage how a person views a situation, whether they see it as positive or negative. It is about a persons perspective. Well I see the glass as just too big and know that you do too, if your breathing.
Life has become extremely busy and at times overwhelming. With work, add in a commute time, family, add in an aging parent or sick one, children and their schedules plus the wonderful but consuming technology ie. Email, Google, Facebook, Linkeden and Twitter if you choose to use social networking, you will see or feel that there are not enough hours in a day to do what is required let alone have the luxuries of down time, hobbies and a social life.
So how can you simplify your life?
There are the usual solutions:
- Better time management – take away a couple hours of sleeping
- Write down a to do list – which if your like me put too many tasks down a day that don’t get accomplished and them move them to the next day. By weeks end I have a list longer of the things I didn’t do than did.
- Prioritize – Do I take the dog for a walk or put down paper?
- Delegate – Unless you can pay an assistant, the only people I can delegate to are my kids and they are too young to drive, go to the market, or use the oven.
The reality is you can’t do it alone, or do it as well as you want without sacrifices to your health, sanity or self esteem. That is why I like being a transitional life and wellness coach, to help you. My life experiences living in different cites nationally and abroad, as well as my education have lead me to the life coaching profession. Whether you live in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, London or Tokyo, all people need support. It’s a common factor. Working with a coach makes life balanced, efficient, and allows you more time to focus on what you want to do rather than what you have to do.
Enter stage left…me. What I do is guide you to move towards your objectives smoothly and efficiently and effectively . When you come to me with a goal or goals you want to achieve, you came to me because you need help. You don’t have the availability to take the time to sit down, strategize, research and assess how to reach your goals in a timely stress free manner, or the resources I do. Taking time out of your day to do those things would just add to your already hectic life. My job is to access, articulate and make a list of action steps with you to do. I will inspire and guide you to successfully accomplish your goal in a timely manner, dependent upon how willing and committed you are to do the work. IT’S ONE LESS THING FOR YOU TO PUT ON YOUR TO DO LIST… YEA!!! It is now on mine.
This is not to say that I tell you what to do, you are involved in the process because you are the process and the answers lie within you. My job is to keep you focused, moving forward and accountable to yourself. I encourage you to think in different ways. I will get your creative juices going, and you do have them, to think outside the box and empower you in ways that you didn’t know lived within you to change your life whether it is to to loose weight or build a strong foundation for your marriage you will succeed.
One step at a time we will get to your destination.
