Take Time to Pause and Reflect

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it." Ferris Bueller

As we head into Memorial Day weekend (in the United States), most of us have an extra day away from our jobs. Some will spend that time in a park or at the beach, some will spend time with family, some will work around the house, and some will attend parades honoring those who have served our country. We have plenty of options about what to do with our time this weekend.

I recommend you take some time to pause and reflect because "life moves pretty fast." Are you using your skills in a way you find rewarding? Is your work, and the people with whom you work, aligned with your values, motivations, and interests? Does your career allow you to live the lifestyle you want? Are you, through your job, creating the legacy you want to create for yourself?

Think about what needs to be different for you to be able to answer yes to those questions. How big is the gap between where you are now and where you want to be? Working with a coach could help you think through the questions and the answers in a more expansive way.

Coaching creates the space and time to reflect deeply on your situation. A coach can provide an outside perspective from a trusted and safe place; the coach's agenda is your success. A coach will help you stay accountable to yourself as you go through the process. Working with a coach you can make the changes you want to make.
