the first step

life questions

what are the first things i need to think about?

Working with a Coach can be and often is a life-changing experience.

The following are some strategic questions that you ought to hear from your coach:

where are you going?

  • Why do you want to go there?
  • Does it make sense in life?
  • Does it make sense in business?
  • Do you have the resources you think you will need?

who can help?

  • Who is going with you?
  • Do you know anyone who has been where you are going?
  • When do you expect to start the adventure?
  • When do you expect to be through the start up part?

what is the minimum you need to declare “success”?

  • Are there other ways to get there?
  • What’s the worst thing that can happen on this adventure?
  • Who can you trust and what can you believe?

what experience do you have that will help?

  • Your blind spots are?
  • Your weaknesses are?
  • Your strengths are?
  • Your passion really is?
  • What does the world say you are good at?
  • What does the world say you are not so good at?

what is your “end game” for this endeavor?

does this make sense?

Sit back, close your eyes, take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Does this make sense?”

Do that exercise three times in a row, pausing a full minute to reflect between each iteration.
