“Too often we let days and months slip by without stopping to examine how things are really going in our lives.” Bahram Akradi, Founder, Chairman, CEO of Life Time Fitness
Successful business women evaluate objectives and outcomes in their business on a regular basis. Corporations do the same. But do we do this in our personal lives or do we bump along day in and day out taking things as they come without considering where we are going? Taking a few minutes daily, weekly or monthly to consider where you are in your life, where you’re going, and what kind of impact you’re having on the world around you can be a valuable use of time.
My friend who lost her husband nearly a year ago evaluates her grieving progress in terms of three steps forward, two steps backward. Sometimes she is able to label what those steps are. It helps her see progress and know that joy is slowly but surely returning to her life.
Affirmation: I am moving forward.
Coaching questions: What would evaluating the objectives and outcomes in your personal life look like for you? What difference might it make?
