Perfectionism

Are you good enough?

I just want to start by saying (with not much humility) I just completed several exams where my abilities were assessed by Master Certified Coaches as “good enough” to receive my PCC or Professional Certified Coach for the ICF otherwise know as the International Coach Federation, the first and largest Association of Coaches worldwide!

What are you postponing right now?

What are you postponing right now? Worrying about “it” is not an effective way of dealing with “it”. All you have done is keep the negative energy around it alive. Facing it and clearing it from your life instantly adds energy to you. Makes you lighter somehow. Even if the “it” was painful or difficult, you are now able to let it go and move on to something else. Life was meant to live, not to be postponed to a later date. ... Read more

What are your standards?

Quote; “A great source of stress in personal and professional relationships is the mismatch of standards you aren’t aware of when you make the initial agreements. Unfortunately you usually only recognize your own implicit expectations of appropriate behavior when they are violated.” David Allen in David Allen’s Productivity Principles Read more
