One of my personal core values is Adventure/"the wilds"/unraveling mystery. This means that I thrive on not knowing what each day has in store for me, imagining all kinds of possibilities, and of feeling both stimulated and slightly apprehensive.
As most of us tend to do, I reflected on the good, the bad and the indifferent events of last year. I also spent time thinking about each coaching client I am currently working with - what he or she is engaged in. And it struck me that each one is willingly undertaking an adventure!
In my January newsletter article, I have listed ten of the adventures that they're either in the midst of or are embarking upon this year.
They are not engaging in their first triathlon, going back to school for an MBA, or taking an African safari. At least as far as we yet know!
In place of pith helmets, cameras and binoculars, they are equipping themselves with curiosity, the desire to learn, and the willingness to break routines.
Here is the list of their top ten adventures. They are:
- No longer tolerating the nonsense. Instead they're speaking up for what they want.
- Discovering what the people they serve REALLY want.
- Loosening up on that old identity
- Getting to know their own value.
- Getting serious about their hobby.
- Getting uncomfortable
- Getting tech savvy
- Discovering a treasure box of resources to support them out there.
- Thinking MUCH bigger.
- Thinking smaller but don’t lose sight of the prize.
What adventures are you planning for yourself this year? I'd love to hear more about them!
