I led 2015 with one primary mission - growth. With such clear intention and focus I set forth rigorous plans to grow my personal and professional life. I celebrated a milestone birthday that way I wanted, I grew my work team and enjoy the people I partner with every day, I pursued (and am still working on) my next level of coaching skills and mastery, and I have expanded my practice which in doing so compelled to cancel the forthcoming Design Your Year Event. Similar to landscaping a garden, I realized planting too many seeds doesn't leave enough room for the roots to grow and deepen which can inadvertently affect the health of the entire garden. I am now in a place where I am plucking some flowers, tending to the roots to what's essential and watering the designs that can blossom most beautifully.
I've spent the end of 2015 cleaning home for the New Year, a tradition held by many, and in doing so I've kicked off 2016 purging things, people, thinking, beliefs and theories that no longer serve my life goals. That in itself is the gift in pursuing personal growth. You shine the light on everything and choose once again, what's most important to and for your life, your career, and the relationships you hold dear. This also means there are some new and immediate changes I am making for Design You Coaching. I will continue to provide individual coaching and shift my business toward professional and leadership development for entrepreneurs and small businesses who desire a creative culture that empowers employees as industry and business expert leaders.
I will continue to journal and share posts with new tools and resources for expanding your business and career. The biggest change will be searching on Design You Coaching for tools or stories that are most relevant to your purpose via the Design You Coaching website search and no longer receiving post in your inbox. I hope in sharing the changes I plan for my practice you too will see it's not about perfection or a single destination. It it about trying something new, revisiting a lesson not learned, and evolving more and more.
As you design your goals for 2016 I encourage you (and me) to be courageous in the face of fear, to be bold and stand alone when needed, to be vulnerable and open your heart to others, and to be ruthless in your pursuit of authentic happiness. Love and Life Lessons!
The life we experience is designed to help us grow. My wish is that you learn from me as much as I learn from you. Share your life lessons and let's build together.
