Another incredible thing about coaching is that I also learn a lot in the process. The learning multiplies multi-folds in group coaching set up. One group that I have been coaching is a part of a programme called Emerging Leaders. One of the coachee shared a life lesson she picked up from her manager. I could so much relate to it when I looked back, yes I have been there.
Here it goes; for sure you may have experienced this, Next company that I go to, I will kill it; I will do this, I will do that, I will deliver extraordinary results there (but not here). Or Next presentation, I will nail it (but not this one). Or Next boss, I will invest in the relationship (but not the current one). Or When I get a promotion, I will perform (but not today). The million-dollar question this raises is: Why not today, right here, right now, with all you have got? If you can't do it today, how are you sure it will happen tomorrow? Why wait for things to be in perfect alignment and delay taking action? Why expect the world to make way for us? Won't happen. You can choose to wait for that perfect moment to act, or take action today with whatever you have got.
