Dear #ClassicalMusic Fan,
See that punctuation in the title?
Remember this one?
“A woman: without her, man is nothing.”
So it could be with today’s title.
Most people would want to read it as
Whereas the lesson I want to share with you today literally is about Why, and why you should take it slow.
For every goal you are planning for 2018 (forget “New Year’s Resolutions” – are you really going to resolve anything?!), I strongly recommend you figure out why you want to achieve that goal.
And I don’t just mean a quick, “I’ll be healthier,” (if your goal is to lose some weight… which in itself is not a goal).
But take your time to figure out the true Why.
For example, my goal to achieve a certain, very specific weight by a certain, very specific date actually has two Whys:
- My doc tells me I will be able to stop taking all my pills if I achieve that weight. YEY!
- I want to wear good fashionable suits again.
I’m fed up of walking past gentlemen’s boutiques simply because I know that my body type doesn’t fit into those nice looking clothes, like it used to. Experience has taught me that I’d have to get the designs custom made, and that is very expensive. Too expensive for my liking (Fashion is great, but not a very high priority in my budget!)
What’s your Why?
Take your time – days, in fact – to explore why you want to achieve something, because it will help motivate you over the next several months as you work towards your goal.
How do you find your Why?
It’s simple and monotonous: keep asking why…
I want to lose weight. Why?
- Day 1 – Because it’s healthy for me. Why?
- Day 2 – Because it’s what the doctor ordered. Why?
- Day 3 – Because I want my body to be able to cope with its own processing and healing. Why?
- Day 4 – Because I don’t want to take any more pills. Why?
- Day 5 – Because we still don’t know what the lifetime effects of most manufactured pills are, so it’s a good thing to rely on real [organic, if affordable] foodstuffs if we can. Hmm… that’s important to me.
It took five days to find my Why.
The Why gives you the momentum to keep going.
So make it a good Why.
Take it slow when finding it.
Now on to the reason for my writing to you today:
A good coach will always help you identify the Why behind your intentions. It’s easy to find a Why for losing weight. It’s not so easy finding Whys for performing, teaching, or administration.
That’s why you need a coach.
If you learn from the lessons in my daily letters that are free, just imagine what you could accomplish working with me professionally!
