Greetings,

Happy fall! This is a great time of year to bring renewed focus to what's next for you and your career.  And, to help you contemplate what's next for you, it can be very helpful to take some time for yourself.  In this 90 second video, I talk about how to make self-care a priority and schedule in time for yourself.   
 
Also, I'm delighted to team with speech coach, Laurie Schloff, who has been on the Today Show and Oprah, to bring you "Ace the Interview" Teleclass. Has it been a long time since you've been on a job interview? Are you in a career transition; looking for your first position, or managing a lay-off? Learn how to speak with clarity and confidence and ace every interview.  Listen to a free preview and we hope to "see" you on the call on 10/29 11am pst/2pm est (or order a recording and listen at your leisure).

How to Revive Your 2013 Goals
Focus on the Positive - One reason goals can fall short is they tend to stress the negative. Instead of thinking about what you want to eliminate in your life, think about what you want to create. For example, instead of just losing weight, think about creating health. Or instead of shrinking debt, think about creating abundance.

Remember the "Why" - To help keep you motivated when the going gets tough, it helps to remember why you set out to achieve your goal in the first place. For example, if you want to create a healthier lifestyle, what will be the benefit of this? Having more energy to play with your kids? Feeling better and looking better? Feeling more confident?

Make Self-Care a Priority - If you really want to make changes in your life, it's imperative to take care of yourself and manage your stress. Start by making sure you're getting enough sleep and eating well. I also highly recommend creating a daily renewal ritual to help you manage stress. This is any quiet, reflective activity that allows you to slow down your thinking brain (which can be caught up in fear, doubt, worry and guilt) and truly be in the moment. It allows you to recharge your battery so you can be more present and energetic throughout the rest of your day. Examples include meditation, yoga, journaling, prayer, yoga, nature walk, listening to music or any personal quiet activity. Start with 10 minutes/day and notice all the great benefits you receive.

Reflection - Review your progress at the end of each week. If you've achieved all your goals for the week, great! If you haven't reached your goals, all is not lost. This is a valuable time for reflection. What did you learn by not reaching your goals? What was the benefit?

Celebrate Your Successes - One of the most important parts of working towards your goals is rewarding yourself when you've succeeded. Be sure to choose a reward at the beginning of the goal setting process and decide on when/how often you'll cash in on that reward. Since you're working on developing new habits in the beginning, I recommend starting with weekly rewards and slowly moving towards monthly rewards. The trick is to be sure to follow-through with rewarding yourself. You've worked hard and you deserve it.

How to Outlast Your Resolutions

Resolutions are as common as champagne on New Year's Eve and, unfortunately, they lose their fizz just as quickly. In fact, nearly 80% of all new-year's resolutions are broken by the end of January each year.

This time of year, I tend to hear from many folks that they want to lose weight, get fit and create more organization. To set yourself up for lasting success, it's important to approach your resolutions from a balanced perspective. Here are some tips that can set you on the path to success:

  1. Short-Term Focus - Humans, by nature, have a short-term focus and work better with small steps. Many don't consider this when making resolutions. It takes too long to achieve a goal of losing 20 pounds or of fitting into your skinny jeans. It's much more realistic, for example, to commit to replacing one can of soda in the afternoon with a much healthier alternative. A piece of fruit or a handful of baby carrots will help curb your sugar craving and are healthier alternatives. The positive feedback from small, daily successes will create motivation and - eventually - lead to lasting, balanced change.
  2. Be Patient with Yourself - On average, it takes 21 days to create a new habit. When you first get started, it will take more time and energy to focus on your daily goal. The trick is to notice when you didn't accomplish your daily goal - and to not beat yourself up about it. After about three solid weeks of working on your daily goals, they'll become second nature and part of your daily routine.
  3. Enlist Your Support Network - Build the support and accountability you'll need to make your resolution a reality. Talk with your partner or folks in your support network about your goals. Saying a resolution out-loud or even via social media creates outside accountability and increases your success rate by 80%. That's why I'm excited to participate in the "Outlast Your New Year's Resolutions" Facebook contest and offer you more tips.
  4. Gauge Your Progress - Create a simple chart, diagram or collage that will help you to gauge your progress one day at a time. Simply refer to this tool at the beginning and end of each week and month to review how far you've come. You can represent your progress with percentages, different colors or smiley faces. There's no one right way to do it. All that matters is that you create a measurement tool that works for you.
  5. Create a Theme - If resolutions don't appeal to you but you still want to make some changes in your life this coming year, consider creating a theme for the year. A theme is a word or succinct phrase that describes how you want to show up in the world, the qualities you'll bring forth and the impact you'll make each day, week and month of the year. Examples include "going out on a limb," "feeling good and looking good," or "enjoying the fruits of my labor." You get the idea.

Once you have your resolution or theme for the year, you can make a list of actions that will help support your intention. For example, for the theme of "feeling good and looking good", perhaps it's following-through with all those doctor appointments you've been putting off or committing to start each day with breakfast.

To help anchor your resolution or theme so that it has a longer shelf life and you're reminded of it on a daily and weekly basis, try writing it as the screensaver on your computer; as the wallpaper on your phone; or on the front page of your hard copy calendar. The idea is to have it front and center so that each day you're reminded of your intention for the year. Then, each day, you choose one small, achievable, realistic action step that will help support your theme or resolution.

Greetings,

Happy summer!  The last three months have been incredibly inspiring.  Through several corporate workshops and a ton of one-on-one coaching, I've witnessed tremendous growth, change and success in my clients.  A great reminder that to successfully meet our goals, we must proactively manage our fear.  That bears repeating.  Unless you make a concerted effort to manage your fear, success will prove elusive, every time.  Here's a 60-second video with some tips on how to manage your fear of failure (just one of hundreds of fears):   

Don't Let Fear Trump Success
