It’s only when we drop the ball or smash a plate that we realise that something has to give and often it’s at the expense of our health, confidence or self-esteem.
Upon reflection it’s easy to see where one’s priorities and time are spent, but when you are in the midst of the crisis it’s often difficult to recognise the warning signs which you face on a daily basis. Compounded by the stresses we endure, these breaking points can creep up on us unawares and create a domino effect on our performance and wellbeing.
Which plate will you drop first and how will it affect the eco-system of your world? When one plate stops spinning and smashes to the floor, it’s likely that your focus will be on the next crisis, rather than on what you need to do to cope.
The most common problem my clients are faced with, is how to manage their time effectively. They focus on saving time but they end up using this time, for more of what they were trying to avoid. It becomes a perpetual cycle of chasing their own tail. Procrastination can have disastrous consequences. We place all of our attention on “not doing” so guess what we don’t do?
Some people often don’t realise the obstacles they face until they have an opportunity to talk freely to me about their situation. So when we begin to work together, my clients are quite astounded at how quickly and radically things improve for them. I create a confidential space for people to discuss what is worrying them and how we can find a solution together. Some of my clients use me as a sounding board, to bounce ideas off. For others, I provide approaches for how they can successfully manage their time, or integrate changes into their businesses and/or personal lives.
