Today, on frankly, a tired day (getting up at 5.15am every day for a week from the season change will do that – thanks Mother Nature!), I suddenly feel deep gratitude for putting in the work and set-up and dare I say it, the commitment-phobe part of me might turn green – structure – to be able to get up and know there are things to do, places to be and people to speak to that aren’t a brand new, fresh opportunity. Sometimes, the familiar is not so bad, whatever we coaches might typically say. Sometimes the familiar allows us to push ourselves further, because we have a sense of security of the people we speak to taking what we say well, or the place we go feeling cosy to our subsconscious. I don’t think my training tutors would like to now hear me speak of the comfort zone so favourably, and I’m a huge proponent of being able to live in the unknown – which is to say an appreciation of the fact that life will bring things you can’t plan for, and that’s ok, we very much need to be able to roll with them – but today, on a tired day, I’m so glad of structure – but also of the doors I worked to keep open – and for those I closed.
Which doors are worth you opening or closing this week?
Til next time,
