"I’m putting the tools I learned from you into action, and it’s amazing to see how in control of life I really am."
- A happy client of mine
Hearing a client reflect on his progress got me thinking about the role I played in that. Below I share the key tools I tend to use with all of my clients - these are the areas I think are key to optimise if we are to create a balanced, joyful, satisfying life and career.
1. 𝐂𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐟𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐕𝐚𝐥𝐮𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐆𝐨𝐚𝐥𝐬
Goals are what everyone seems to be pursuing, but Values are what we're really after.
Goals give us direction. Values are the destination.
Goals give us a short-term high, or even "Is that it?"
Values give us the deeply nourishing sense of "I love my life".
Knowing our values helps us set the right direction for our lives. So the best goals we can set are those that are aligned with our values. If they are conflicting our values, it's best we re-think them.
2. 𝐒𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐃𝐚𝐲 & 𝗪𝐞𝐞𝐤
Structure gives a creative mind a sense of calm, clarity and being in control. You can simply focus on the next step, knowing that everything important is being covered, and enjoy the creativity you bring to each moment.
3. 𝐒𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡𝐲 𝐁𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬
Boundaries are invisible barriers we raise to protect our priorities, our energy and our time.
We all have them, but aren't always aware of them.
Not knowing your boundaries can cost you your freedom and vibrancy, which is a high price to pay.
4. 𝐌𝐚𝐧𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐞
Your internal state is how you feel moment-to-moment.
It's the secret to a high quality of life,
taking the action you want to take + getting the results you want to get.
It's very much within your control once you know how.
