What’s important to you? And why it matters.
I was interviewed by Jim Hawkins on BBC Radio Shropshire earlier this month, about coaching and how we can be the best at what we do (a recording of the interview is on my home page). One of the areas we talked about was the value of knowing what is really important to you. I talked about an exercise I use with some of my clients, where they are challenged to whittle down a list of things that are important to them to just 5 or 6. There is a huge range to choose from, such as health, happiness, status, freedom, security, wealth. It is not an easy task… But once you have those 5 or 6 key things that are most important to you, you have your reference point, your compass. This compass will support you to make decisions that align with what is important to you. That will set you on a path to achieve your version of success and fulfilment. There are no rights or wrongs here. We are all different. We will all have a different list of key things that are most important to us. We will all have our own version of success. The trick it to be clear about what that is, so you can follow your own dream, not someone else’s.
