This is the view from my back yard. It is Kapiti Island off the west coast of the north island of New Zealand. These pictures were taken just a few hours apart. Every day is different. Each day I see something new from the same spot in my garden. It is invigorating and I am so grateful to live in such a wonderful place.
Not every part of my life has such obvious changes every day, but every day if I look in a certain way I see something new, inspiring and exciting.
As a coach for high achievers and leaders a challenge sometimes for them is to keep things fresh. I don’t mean fresh for their clients, teams or their markets. I mean fresh for themselves. Have you ever had that experience of feeling like you are sleep walking through your life? You ARE very successful in your line of work. You can prove it, you have a good income, nice home, family, and all the toys you want. Is this how you want to measure your success?
Often an immediate response is that there needs to be some BIG change or that there is something ‘wrong’ with them or their lives. Well, sometimes that might be right. But most times a small change can have a profound impact. A change in thinking can be simple and without being trite, transformational.
