How I Stopped Micromanaging Myself

  I was "The King of To-Do Lists". Back in the 80’s when there were no electronic devices, a student at the university told me, “You are my role model for being well organized. How do you plan your exams?“ He seemed to be impressed by my bulky personal management notebook. At the same time I was asked by others to organize training sessions on self-management. Looking back, this was probably the starting point of my coaching career....

What is PRO – how and why does it work?

Imagine you get an email from your coach. He reminds you of your commitment to work on your goals regularly. He makes you feel good about your achievement and offers wisdom about self management. You may tell your coach to do more for you, for example, send you reminders about when your goals are due.

Until Growth Do Us Part

The turning of the calendar to a new year has always delights me.  It’s a signal that it’s time to reflect -- and more importantly, to declare what I want to create for the next year of my life. As a child I recall sitting at the student desk in my room and writing down goals – not the average New Year’s Resolutions type of goal, but goals that were specific, measurable and relevant in my young life.  Perhaps it was the grade point average or the new baton routine I wanted to master.  I would ...

Demonstrate Commitment

Commitment is a powerful force that can change the course of your life.  It has mine. Without demonstrating you are serious by taking a step in the direction of what you want, that force can just slip away.  That first step, no matter how fearful it may be, is the act of claiming your power.  And the Universe loves nothing more than to support you in being the powerful person you are....

What Are We Waiting For?

Most of us are waiting.  We don’t realize we’re waiting because we’re so busy.  But if we really look, we’re waiting. We’re waiting for the right moment to get started on what we really want to do.  Or for the right job.  Or for the right person to join us.  We think to ourselves “Once I get this done, then I’ll really get started doing what I want.” But before we finish doing what we’re doing, we’re interrupted by another priority that pulls us away and off we go doing that thing, desperately ...
