Golden Nuggets from me to you

Conserving your precious resources…

Categories: coaching, golden nuggetsAuthor:


 
The best thing about a leaky faucet…
 
…is that you can hear it.
 
And, if it’s annoying enough, you will be compelled to fix it (sooner, rather than later.)
 
Plus, water is a precious resource.
 
Alas, not all of our leaks of precious resources are as easily identified and plugged.
 
Why is that?
 
My 90-second answer – this week’s Golden Nugget – starts at the :45 second mark in the video above.
 
(Place your cursor over the video image and the time bar will appear at the bottom of the video.)
 
Also… my amazing cartooning skillz are featured at minute 3:40, 4:09 and 5:35. Yeah, that’s right… should this whole coaching thing not work out, drawing is totally my plan B.

Craving a clear sign or two?

So, wadda ya do…
 
…when you don’t know What to do?
 
That’s right, we’re talking about those times when the Fog has descended over your life, and your path – or even just your next step – is completely unclear.
 
What in the world do you DO during those uncomfortable days, weeks, months?
 
There are two parts to the functioning of your life and career: the What you are doing and the How you are doing it.
 
When the What is momentarily unclear, then turn your attention to refreshing or restructuring your Hows:
 
:: remove what’s stale
:: tweak what’s frustrating
:: delete what’s unnecessary
 
:: organize your closet
:: fix your lamp
:: weed your database (or garden!)
 
Rather than expending precious energy resisting the “the Fog,” welcome it as a gift of time to strengthen your foundation before you head off on your next adventure.
 
 
Keep betting on yourself – I believe in you,

Mindset Reset
Introducing my new Mindset Reset Program:
 
ANY independent creative professional can benefit from learning how to develop one of the most valuable strengths you can have: the ability to find and plug your energy leaks.
 
My new very short-term, very low-cost, very powerful group coaching program begins Sept. 16th.
 
(Your special rate = $100.)
 
Together we will apply the Mindset Reset concepts and tools to help you create a deep and lasting transformation.
 
No matter where you live in the world, you can join me in the ONLINE group (via a video conferencing program) or in one of the in-person groups in Glendale, CA.
 
Details (and a cool little video) await you here.

Why even go for the gold?

Categories: coaching, golden nuggetsAuthor:


 
If you are going to try…
 
…then try ALL of the angles.
 
Turn over all of the stones.
 
Throw every hat you have into that ring!
 
As Brené Brown suggests: If you are going to dare, dare greatly.
 
Why?
 
Because, ironically, exhausting every angle, every contact, and every avenue available to you is how you buffer yourself against the pain that comes should you end up not getting what you heart desires.
 
In my line of work, I see a lot of folks reaching towards goals…
 
…trying to get a job.
…trying to get seen for a role.
…trying to sell their product.
 
And I get bummed watching them try once or twice – or try only one or two things.
 
I know that they genuinely want what they are trying to get.
 
I also know that they have never yet in their life challenged themselves enough to experience the vast emotional distance between “I tried and didn’t get it” and “I tried everything I could think of and didn’t get it.”
 
“I tried” may lead to a victory…
 
…but “I tried everything I could think of” is a victory in and of itself.
 
 
Keep betting on yourself – I believe in you,
