Lennon Imagine Wall, Prague, Czech Republic
As I was making coffee this morning, I was imagining how I would like my work life to look. I've never been self-employed before and all this is new territory for me. As I was thinking about it, I remembered that my WONDERFUL coach Marianne Pestana suggested in October that I write down my goals (click here to visit her website). Marianne has been an expert guide, faithful supporter and effective motivator. I can't really say enough good things about her. This coaching stuff really does work!
Six months later as I was watching espresso run into my coffee cup, imagining my ideal scenario, I realized my goals are the same and I am steadily working towards that ideal! Now, I hate to admit this, but I can't recall this ever really happening before. Sure, as a teacher and staff developer, I talked about goals all the time. I often ask my clients about their "end game." Why are they doing what they are doing? I've written about my priorities. I've had goals my whole life and I've achieved many of them, I just have never written them down before.
This was a powerful moment for me. It is proof that my brain continues to work toward my intention, even when it isn't conscious. I probably prefer the word imagine to goal. It seems softer somehow. For me, imagination captures what Jill Badonsky calls the essence. How I want to feel when I arrive at my goal. I'm going to keep moving along this wonderful road! I LOVE being a life long learner!
