12 Jan Get Clear, Get Focused…and maybe Get Away from the Merlot!
It’s that time of year when, after the excess of Christmas, many people are taking part in Alcohol Concern’s annual campaign to have a Dry January. Yes, they’ll be having absolutely no alcohol for the whole 31 days of January.
While you might not want to join them – let’s face it, many of us like a relaxing glass of wine – it may be worth thinking about cutting down a bit if your New Year’s resolution is to shake up your work life. After all, there’s no point getting all fired up with a new business idea or work direction if your head’s swimming with post-alcohol fuzziness. What you need now is focus and clarity – not an ‘I wish I hadn’t had that last glass of merlot’ headache.
Changing your habits
Of course it’s easy to feel fuddled when you’re making changes in your life. There are so many thoughts, questions and niggling worries going on in your head it can be hard to make sense of it all. Sometimes you can be left feeling so stressed you might reach for the wine bottle… or tin of biscuits…or that chocolate fudge cake.
I understand how confusing and unnerving making changes can be. My coaching sessions give you the opportunity to talk through how you’re feeling and to identify any areas that may be concerning you, before we start working together to help you take the action you need to achieve your goals…and this open, trusting environment continues right the way through the process, so that at any time should an obstacle arise, we can work together to clear it out of the way. And if you want to feel pepped up and primed to go as soon as possible, I offer intensive coaching sessions in addition to the longer programmes. I like to think of this three-hour session as a fast track to focus and clarity. It will help blow away the cobwebs, boost your confidence, sort out the whirl of ideas going around in your head and leave you with a kick-ass, can-do attitude ready to attack that action plan!
I could say we should drink to that… but maybe we’ll toast your success next month!
