Evesdropping #4| “Envy| is the art of… “

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] “Envy is the art of counting the other fellows blessings instead of our own.” Harold Coffin Eve started off the session with an important statement for her. “I have wasted too much time crying over things that I wouldn’t have done different! I am good the way I am.” After our last session I gave Eve a cd of music. On it are all female vocalists with some very powerful songs. A couple of them had lyrics that really ... Read more

Not having a |choice| is an| illusion.

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false]I didn’t used to see choices, they were something other people had. I was not taught that I had a choice about anything. When decisions were made in my youth they were in rebellion of rules that had been thrown upon me. I don’t think that the rule thing is new to people of my generation and even some of our kids, but there needed to be some choices given that grow in importance as we mature and ... Read more

Do you have a| point of view| or are you living in the |grey zone?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] When I was in primary school, I had a simplistic view of what I knew.  Things were black or white, right or wrong. My view was that I was wrong and my parents were right until I was right and they were wrong. As a young teen mixed up in an adult world, things became very confusing.  My point of view became a resounding grey. I could no longer define black or white, right or wrong as ... Read more

Do you take the left or the RIGHT road?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false]  Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Mark Twain This is the great conundrum, to continue doing what you do to pay the bills. Keep providing the life you promised to your family or to do what you have always dreamed of. ... Read more

Have you ever had “yeah, but-itis”?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] I cannot tell you how many times people have said “yeah, but…” in response to something I said. I may have had an opinion, insight or idea they either never heard completely or couldn’t be bothered to listen. Like they were busily creating what they were going to say. Brushing me off completely while they created their case! I end up feeling like I don’t matter or that I must defend myself. It’s awful! How do I know that ... Read more

What’s in a name and how did you get yours?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] I was second born to my 11 month older brother in Winnipeg, Manitoba on November 28, 1958. I have 4 younger siblings of which 2 were girls and 2 were boys. I was given my father’s name Rowland, even though my parents were not married until five of the six of us were born- I was told this nugget as a teen. I was named after the perky character from the song in the movie “Tammy and the ... Read more

Evesdropping #2 | “Eve has been |shoulding| all over herself!”

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] You met Eve last week in "Eve" a REAL client!  Eve had come a long way in her quest for happiness and value in her first coaching session. Her next session began with thoughts about feeling guilty. Eve felt guilty about so many things. Guilt about not being the best mom,  not doing enough of ‘this’ and even doing too much of ‘that’ at times…I know that you get what I am talking about. Some of you have ... Read more

What are your |standards?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] 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
