Successful? How Do You Know?
As our coaching progresses, I have three specific questions I ask my clients about how things are going, for them:
- Do you have a comprehensive plan for your life that is both clear and exciting?
- Are you making progress on what’s most important now?
- On a scale of 1 – 10, 10 being absolutely confident, how sure are you that you will have made meaningful progress on your goals in a year’s time?
My benchmark for adequate progress is: Yes, Yes and at least a 7. If my clients can’t give me those answers, I find out why, and what needs to change.
Currently, I need to look at these questions anew and develop some better answers myself. I have a plan for my life, and it is somewhat exciting, but it’s not as clear as it could be — or needs to be. I am making progress on what’s most important to me right now, but, again, not as much as I could due to a lack-of-clarity. And I would say my confidence is only at a “5” (owing, again, to a lack of clarity . . . ).
How are you in relation to those three questions?
