The Coach’s Corner – What is your BIG A?

Is your plate overflowing with tasks, projects, to do’s? And you just can’t seem to get started? Follow these steps to keep yourself on track to successful completion.
  • Identify specifically what you want to accomplish. What is your BIG Agenda? Be precise – how, what, when, where, why?
  • Break your project down into smaller tasks. What are your LITTLE Agendas that will keep you on track for completion of the BIG Agenda?
  • Pick the right time to start. Select your date. Pick the time of day when you are most refreshed.
  • Minimize interruptions. Turn off cell phones, pagers, and e-mails. Let your telephone forward to messaging.
  • Set clear, strong boundaries with others and let them know you are not to be interrupted during this time unless there is an emergency.
  • Focus on one Small Agenda at a time. Give yourself a little reward as you complete each Small Agenda.
  • Plan a big reward for completion of your BIG Agenda.
Coaching questions:
