Time to Reflect

Wow! It’s almost time to wave goodbye to yet another year. As I look forward to a few weeks break from writing, I offer you a final post for the year – one that could honestly change your life. 🙂

Depending on your hemisphere, you may be preparing for the summer holidays and some outdoor fun and adventure … or looking forward to cosying up to your family and friends around a log fire and a hearty roast dinner or two!

Either way, I hope you qualify for some much deserved time off work and that you’ll be able to relax and find time to reflect.

You may be surprised to know just how vital such reflection time is.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

– Viktor E. Frankl

Ways To Manage Your Time Wisely

Understanding how to manage your time wisely is highly relevant, whether you happen to be a life coach or just about anyone else for that matter.

Time management is a subject close to everyone’s heart nowadays, given the hectic lives we tend to lead in these interesting times!

Today, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to writer and blogger, Jack Milgram, who has done some useful research on time management and come up with what I think is a very well constructed and helpful summary that I’d like to share with you.

Read on to hear what Jack has to say, before accessing his excellent 15-point infographic.

“Time is the most valuable coin in your life. You and you alone will determine how that coin will be spent. Be careful that you do not let other people spend it for you.”

– Carl Sandburg

Life Coaching: A Career for the 21st Century

Quite recently, an old school friend who I hadn’t heard from for some forty odd years made contact on Facebook. To my surprise it turned out that he had been living around the corner from us for many years.

The ease with which we were able to reconnect after all that time, spurred him on to start and promote a Facebook group for all those who were in our final high school year. Now we have a thriving little community all enthusiastically indulging in a bit of “Remember the time …”

It got me reflecting on a question that I suspect is in the back of many people’s minds.

Is the world becoming a better or a worse place?

“Your life only gets better when you do.”

Fair Exchange

“Coaches HATE selling” screamed the headline of an advert for an online course that I saw on Facebook recently.

It was clearly aimed at life coaches who, well, find the idea of selling their services difficult, to say the least. And I would guess that that applies to most who take up this career – at least in the early stages.

“The universe is based on fair exchange. What you give you will get.”

– Guruji Sri Sri Poonamji
