Making 'complicated' things, simple.


We all live in a world with many, many things to balance. Work, children, our partners, family, friends, health, fitness, homes, hobbies, interests, passions, money, travel etc. How do we get to a point that we can be satisfied in more than one or even ALL of these areas? I for one have lots of things that I would like to do and I often find myself feeling guilty that I may have 'neglected' one area over another. I feel overwhelmed and that life is just too much and it just feels too complicated! I'm exhausted and I don't have time for myself.

What I have realised though my coaching journey, is that breaking things down into bite size chunks, just makes life that little bit easier to get through. And I spend a lot of my time helping others to create their goals, but I've neglected to apply this to myself. As someone who rarely does things by halves, I do take on too much. That's a fact. But, that's also what makes me, me.

So, my vision? Well, I want to (in no particular order:)

Be the parent I want to be
Have a long and happy marriage
Have a career I am happy with
Have a hand in voluntary work (coaching)
Have a home that I love
Be a skilled coach (not to have a coaching business)
Have time for health and fitness
Have time for family and friends

Necessary resource sets

I happen to be one of the most organised people on the planet. You should have seen my wedding - it was a well oiled machine and the day went off without a hitch. I hasten to add, that I am not a 100% anally retentive organised person. If things go wrong, I don't panic, I stay calm and I just deal with it. I don't get angry. Things don't always have to be done my way - I am completely open to suggestion.

So, to make my vision happen, I need to have plans. I need to have my goals written down and I need to find a way to keep myself accountable. In order to do this, I'll need the support of my husband and my friends and family - got that, no problem. I'm just not sure how to use them. I need time (don't we all.)

In terms of specifics, I probably need to:

Sort my list into short, medium and long term priorities (by October 31st)
Analyse WHY I have prioritised them into those categories (understanding what is important to me)
Create a set of goals for 2014 (by October 31st)

Where are you right now?

I am 100% at the starting point. I'm a blank canvas. I am officially nowhere.

Obstacles or limitations

Time feels like my limitation. The fact that I am teetering on the edge of parenthood and my life is about to be turned upside down and back to front. I guess this is a time in most parents-to-be's lives that causes them to re-evaluate most aspects of their lives.
