So it is officially summer – long sunny days, barbecues and fun in the sun! With all these things also comes the reality that there are 6 months left! This is a great time to look at your coaching goals - where are you now and where do you want to be? What do you want to achieve in within the next 6 months? Now is the time to get really clear on what you want and start to plan. To create and maintain momentum that will drive you to follow through with achieving your goals, you must get S.M.A.R.T. This means making sure the results you are moving toward are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and anchored within a Time Frame. This level of clarity puts power behind your goals and ensures you can measure your progress more often and take new actions. Some tips to help when making goals:
Ensure your goals are absolutely what you MUST achieve in the next 6 months
Chunk your goals down from 6 month to 3 month goals
Prioritize goals in the order you want to achieve them
Commit and schedule – remember if it is not scheduled it is not real
Set up a way to track and measure your progress – hint, hint - your coach :)
Celebrate and congratulate yourself on now having a plan that is all about taking action
Now it is time for you to take action – review your goals, adjust and modify them as you see fit and let’s get the summer started off with a bang! ** Please note that I am on vacation from Monday June 29 thru Monday July 6. One of the key elements in coaching is having consistency with coaching sessions (every 7-10 Days) to keep up the momentum. Be sure to schedule your coaching sessions for the month of July. Be Well and Stay Cool!!
