If you had a pound for every time you said to yourself, 'If only there were more hours in the day', would you be a millionaire?
I've met many people for whom time, time and time again is an ever present issue. Rather than accept that there are only 24hours in a day, the temptation is often to resist this all important fact and grow increasingly despairing about the amount of work to be done and the lack of time in which to do it.
However, as Carl Jung once said, 'What you resist persists.'
This may well be an opportune moment to step back, take stock and reflect on a new approach.
When we train as coaches, we learn various coaching models that, at the start of our coaching act as a useful guide for us to walk the change journey with our clients. As I reflect back on the early days of my coaching, over a decade ago, I notice that I was perhaps too rigid in my interpretation of how to employ those models and structures. What I pay attention to these days is my client, and only them, noticing not what they tell me, just how they do it.
