6 Strangers: Nine Weeks Later

It’s *Think it Thursday* and last week I had coaching calls with 6 strangers.

I had met these women before.

And I’d been working with them for 9 weeks.

But they were completely different than the women I had spoken with 3 months earlier.

In October they were unclear on where to start with priorities. They didn’t know how to begin to eliminate overwhelm. They knew they needed better self-care, but had no idea where to start.

We spent 9 week together and everything changed.

The calls I had with them last week – were incredible.

Every one of them had experienced improvement in their marriage.

They each understood exactly where their focus should be in the new year.

They felt more at peace with the direction of their life.

And the best part – they felt more confident in themselves and their ability to make their life what they really want it to be.

What’s better than that?

Not much.

The Lull: Productive and Fun

plan

For most of us the week between holidays is a lull between special days. There’s work to do, but we also want quality family time.

It’s in weeks like these that it’s difficult to be productive. We aren’t as focused as we could be. Sometimes we think, “why bother?” and put even less effort into trying to be focused.

I say this is the BEST time to be extremely focused.

As you start your week, decide ahead of time exactly what work or projects you will finish. Schedule them in and give yourself a very specific time frame to accomplish them.
Then, let the rest go…

Our tendency is to have this idea floating around in the back of our head that we “should” be doing more. I don’t believe it. I should be doing exactly what I said I would do. I’m going to do it within the time frame that I planned to do it. Then, I won’t think about it.

How can you make the lull productive and fun? You are the one who gets to decide how you will experience this week. I recommend making that decision on purpose, rather than by default.

Stop Feeling Bad

choices

I have priorities that are really important to me.

Quality family time is a big one for me, yet it’s so easy to schedule other things instead.

Why is it so hard for us to say “no” to things that take away from what’s most important?

Sometimes it’s because something else is more appealing or easier. Or it could be because we have a false belief that we “should” do something, even if it doesn’t align with our priorities.

And sometimes we just feel “bad.” You can swap out “bad” for guilty, obligated, or pressured.

This week I had a student who was asking for a little TLC. She wanted a coaching call and I had no time in my schedule. I had scheduled my priorities and the only way to talk with her was to move something from my list. It would have meant eating into time I had deliberately set aside for my son. I love my student and I want to be there for her. But I had to make a choice between my son and her. I don’t like making those choices.

Many of us end up trying to squeeze in more than we can actually do in a day or a week. We do it because we feel “bad.” The problem with this is we can’t create an extra hour in the day, and something’s got to give. It might be your son, or your sanity… either way – it’s likely not worth giving up.

I had to make a hard choice. I had to say no to a student I love and care about, so I could take care of my top priorities. When I made the choice, I decided I would not feel “bad” about it. I made a choice from a place of love and integrity, and that’s something I can always feel good about.

What gets in the way of you keeping your priorities at the top? What would be different if you could?
