Continuing You in 2017

So, do you have your 3 words you want to use to describe yourself this year?

If you’re curious about what we’re talking about, check out last week’s post here.

What we know is that having a goal (these three words) is awesome – and to actually make things happen, we need some actions we can commit to.

Ready to start?

Step 1: Look at your calendar and pick a time each month (for an hour) that you can block to take the time to reflect on YOU

  • Strive for consistency, such as the last Friday or the first day of each month
  • Send yourself a re-occurring invite for that time each month through December

Step 2: Take each of your three words and ask yourself, what is one thing I can do between now and the next reflection time to start to see progress?

Step 3: WRITE IT DOWN. Put it somewhere you’ll see so it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle of life!

Need some places to start?

  • Maybe you want to hit new goals this year …
    • Define one of those and talk to your Manager about it in your next 1×1
  • Or you want to finish a 10k …
    • Decide on the month you want to race and choose which race you want to do (AND maybe even register for it!)
  • Or maybe you want to start an herb garden …
    • Take some time to choose a couple of herbs you want to start with

Then, when you have your blocked time next month, ask yourself some questions about these words. For example:

  • How am I seeing change in these areas?
  • What more can I do?
  • Who do I need to talk to in order to make that happen?
  • What is the next step or thing I can do before next month?

Excited for YOU in 2017?

Us too!

Be sure to share your words with us. We’d love to know!

You in 2017

You in 2017

We’ve made it – welcome to 2017!

Have an aversion to New Year’s resolutions?

Try something new with us to measure success in 2017.

We’ll be thinking of three words that relate to a specific part of our lives. These words will be our words of encouragement, challenge, or continuation of growth in 2017!

Ready? Let’s begin:

The first word (or phrase) will relate to your professional life.

In thinking about where you are and where you’d like to go, what is one word that you want to be able to use to describe your professional life throughout 2017?

Here are some words to get those juices flowing:

  • Grow
  • Hitting New Goals
  • Delegator
  • Communicator
  • Emerging Leader

As you are making decisions, taking on new projects, and working with others, use the lens of your word – pushing you to further greatness!

The next word (or phrase) will relate to your personal life.

In thinking about your personal relationships, hobbies, and interests, what is one word you’d like to use to describe that through 2017?

This could be something like:

  • Thoughtful
  • Assertive
  • 10k Finisher
  • Emerging Artist

AWESOME!

Now on to the last word (or phrase). Your last word is something new you want to try this year.

Maybe you’ve always wanted to travel to New York, but never have.

Or you’re not totally comfortable speaking in front of people and want to work on that.

Or maybe you think that people who have herb gardens are really cool, but you haven’t had one (and secretly, you’d like to try!).

We ALL have those things. So, think about what it is for you and choose a word that represents it!

Got your words? Now – write these down and stick them somewhere you look often. Write it in cool letters and frame it, or even just throw it on your computer desktop.

Come back next week for some next steps!

Happy New Year!

In two days, we will officially enter 2017!

Here at Coaching Right Now we are all focused on personal development – asking ourselves the question, “How can I be better than I currently am?”

We come from the philosophy that we are all ALWAYS learning, growing, and changing. And that regardless of where we are in our lives, we can all continue to learn and grow.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be looking at different ways we can commit to growing over the next year.

Ready? We sure are!

We wish you a safe and fabulous New Year’s celebration. Let’s make 2017 amazing!
