Coaching Tip of the Week:
The excitement of the new year has worn off. Cabin fever has struck. The end of the year seems a looooong way off for those annual goals.
Any of this sound familiar?
A dip in motivation around this time of year is not uncommon. Fortunately, you can choose from many simple actions to keep yourself inspired and moving toward your top-priority goals.
This week, change your scenery.
In a certification course I am taking, the instructor recently shared that Instagram and the hit musical Hamilton were both innovated by people while on vacation. Even if you don’t have a vacation planned in near future, you can prompt creativity in other ways:
Pack up your most pressing project, and nothing else, and head to your local coffee shop.
Gather the necessary materials for your Daily Top 3 and visit your local botanical gardens to complete them.
Step away from your computer, leave your phone in your desk, and take a 20-minute walk in the brisk air.
Temporarily move out of ‘business as usual’ and see what surfaces for you! Click here for a few more ideas, too.
Share your thoughts below or on InstagramFacebook, or Twitter! And if you’d like coaching to gain clarity on your goals and action plans, let’s talk.
