Progress Not Perfection – My 2017 Goals, A Work in Progress (Part 1)

Whilst everywhere I turn, there are lots of new years resolutions and goals being published for the world to see, it’s safe to say I’m currently in something of a reflect and review phase.

I’m a busy working mummy of one and whilst I love the idea of setting stretching visions, all too often these can become another pressure to the daily grind. Rather than a transformational change, I see my 2017 as being a process of incremental habit changes. Progress not perfection. Quite often, the thought of any change can be pretty mind blowing when you have the nursery run/sales pitch/this evenings dinner to think about, but it can be made all the more possible with the help of an inspirational mentor or coach to help you on your way. In the absence of a personal one-to-one with your personal Mr Motivator, one of the daily affirmation/review cards that are widely available could be a good place to start to break down your whirring thought processes into manageable chunks of meaningful information.

I’ve decided to use the Kim Morgan Coaching Cards for Every Day to get me started. Not only is Kim one of the leading coaches in her profession along with being a regular contributor to Psychologies magazine but I’ve had the privilege of attending a Springboard Training programme with her a few years ago and I absolutely loved it.

This is the card that I’ve pulled out of the pack today;

I’m going to try and pull a card out of the pack each week and let you know how I get on – bear with me though, this is the year of creating new habits so give me time to settle into the rhythm!

So, back to this weeks question; “What are your top 5 experiences in life so far?”

  1. Having my son (everyday is a new experience, some better than others!)
  2. Taking the leap to go self-employed
  3. Completing my MBA
  4. Travelling to India alone
  5. Meeting my husband (cheesy but I’m feeling sentimental, it’s the new year ok!)

What are your top 5 experiences in life and how did they make you feel? x
