5 Minutes to Begin to Want Something Again

December 4th, 2017 · Comments

For many people, this time of year is especially hard because so many other people seem to be clear about what they want. From the kids giving their Christmas lists to Santa Claus to the ambitious co-worker with plans for 2018, other people seem to know what you want. But maybe you don't know. Maybe you don't feel great about yourself or your options, and the more other people make plans, the more it all seems impossible for you.

You're not alone. It's hard to commit to wanting something when you've hit a roadblock or been knocked down once too often or simply become so comfortably stuck that you can't imagine moving. In these 5 minutes, consider some very small steps that might help you shape a goal, however small, that you can commit to so that you begin to move again.

Figure out what you want in about 5 minutes

November 4th, 2016 · Comments

Much of the work we do as coaches consists of helping people figure out what it is they want. In this 5 minute audio, you'll get a chance to think about three important questions:

  • When you think about what you want next, what is non-negotiable?
  • How have you been following your values in the choices you've been making about what to do (and what not to do)?
  • Where do you want to be in 2022 and what do you have to do now to get there (hint: start with being clear and vivid when you think about 2022)

Restore your focus in less than 10 minutes

June 8th, 2016 · Comments

This episode is an exercise that will take about 8 minutes to lead you from your current mindset of frustration, confusion or distraction into a clear and useful mindset of focus. We begin by assembling the components of a state that supports focus. In the second step, we open up a focus on the thing you want - your outcome, desired future, goal or task. Finally, we use a familiar NLP pattern to practice moving your focus back to what you want, no matter what distracts you.
