What Life-Changing Goal Do You Wish to Pursue Right Now?

Is there something you have always dreamed about doing and couldn't find the time, energy, or focus?

  • Do you want to go back to school and FINALLY get that degree?
  • Lose the 25 pounds that have been sticking around for years and that you can't seem to remove?
  • Write that book that has been in your head?
  • Start that side-hustle that will provide more security?
  • Launch a business that is more aligned with your dreams?
  • Change your career into something that better reflects your calling and your values?
  • Finally learn guitar and impress your friends at the next campfire with your new-found musicianship?
  • Learn another language and take that trip you have always dreamed about?
  • Hike the Pacific Coast Trail, run your first marathon, or conquer another athletic challenge?
  • Something else?

Each of us has a dream deep inside. A dream we may not have been able to find time for, or have tried and failed at.


How can we start making it happen now?

Most success coaches will ask "What's stopping you?  Why not now?"  

There are likely good reasons why it hasn't happened yet.

Big, life-changing dreams take time, energy, and resources.

All of these things are at a premium.

We already have a lot of other work on our plate.

Our schedules are already booked out.

Our energy and focus is pulled in multiple directions by multiple people.

And resources feel scarce, or seem to be held by others, or require a lot more work to get.

 

What if there was a way to work towards your goals while taking advantage of what you already have?

What if there was a way to break these goals down into smaller, more digestible chunks?

What if there was a way to make progress without burning yourself out?

 


Only 1 in 5 of change efforts succeed!

How are your resolutions going?

Did you abandon them?

Or...are you still at it, but quickly losing enthusiasm?

Or...are you still enthusiastic, but not seeing results or progress?

Or...are you burning out from trying to change all the things and are this close to throwing in the towel on the whole shebang?

 

For many of us, we try to change all of the things all at once.

Or we set unrealistic goals in hopes that by "stretching" we can make the change happen.

Or our goals are so big that they feel unattainable, after that initial burst of enthusiasm.

Or we are setting a goal for ourselves that someone else wants us to set vs. something we actually want.

Or we set a good goal, one we are excited about, but the plan just doesn't work for our environment or our energy level.

 

Then, after banging our heads against the wall and expending a ton of energy, time and money, we feel even worse about ourselves.  

 

To me, that's madness.

 

What if there was a way to put the odds of success in your favor?

 

How many things are you trying to do at the same time?

How many directions are you being pulled in?

How many demands are placed on you  from others?

You don't need to be fixed.

The problem I see with resolutions, self-improvement initiatives, diet and exercise programs, and other forms of personal change is that it assumes that we are "broken" somehow.

 

Many of these plans don't accommodate our lives, our obligations, or our desires.

 

Instead, we wind up with a laundry list of things we "should" be doing, goals we "should" achieve, a life we "should" want.

 

According to whom?

 

Let's step back.  What do YOU want?

 

  • Is there a project you always wanted to make time for and just haven't found the time?

  • Is there a habit you are trying to start (or break) and relying on your current support structure hasn't worked?

  • Do you need help navigating through the (inevitable) dip that occurs when you are trying something new?

  • Are you thinking there is a better way to make change in your life?

PRODUCTIVITY COACH AND PROJECT MANAGER

I am a veteran of over 15 years in corporate IT and more than 25 years in adult education.   I spent my career helping people change habits, learn new skills, and gain confidence in their abilities.  

What one big change do you wish to make in your life?

One of the best ways to ensure that change succeeds is through accountability.

 

To start, I'm offering two  1-1 50 minute sessions to help you succeed with your goal.

 

The first session will clarify the scope of the change you wish to make, why you want to make it, and discuss both the short and long-term impact of your change.

 

The second session will confirm any decisions you may have made as a result of our conversation, create an inventory of the resources you already have at your disposal, and develop a plan for making your change sticky and real.  We will also talk about troubleshooting and intake as you execute your plan.

My intent is that  after our time together you are able to walk away with a process that will help you ensure that ANY goal or change you wish to make is successful.  By the end both sessions you should be able to:

01.

Determine whether to pursue a change now, later, or never.  Being able to prioritize your activities and focus on the most important tasks are keys to success that are often neglected in our distractible, multi-tasking world.

 

02.

Identify potential obstacles to success and mitigate them. Seeing where you may run into challenges before you start helps you plan for those challenges. That way, when you encounter them, you confidently know what to do.

 

03.

Quickly find the resources you need. We will look at all of the skills, talents, support, and resources already at your disposal. By knowing what you already have to work with, we can reduce the gap between where you are now and where you want to be

 

04.

Create an action plan. Action plans help you see where you are going and help you measure progress towards your goals. We will also talk about ways to measure progress and how to adjust the plan when things don't go the way you expect.

I have a limited number of slots available.

My intent is to help you succeed over the long-term, not just the short-term.

7-DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE... NO QUESTIONS ASKED!

Things happen. We may not be able to find the right time to suit your needs. You may have already solved your own problem. You may decide that you don't want to talk to me.  It doesn't matter.  I will provide a full refund 7 days after purchase, just let me know.

 

Also, if we find that we are not a match and I am not able to help you during the first session, I will also refund your money.  

 

Your time is valuable.  I don't want to waste yours.
