Resources

The Resources Pillar addresses the tools & systems that help you manage tasks, your calendar, and reminders.  In short, it's the skill area that helps keep you on track!  If you rely on memory alone to know what has to be done, are inefficient with using systems or routines, or don't have any single place to capture all that has to get done, you could benefit from shoring up your Resources pillar. 

  • 1/2 Day Goal-Setting & Strategy Session

    This Pillar reflects how actions, roles, and routines, line up with goals and life priorities. In other words, “Do my actions reflect what is important to me”? Motivation is impacted by how well you connect our day-to-day activities with what’s truly important to you. Likewise, frustration sets in when you aren’t making progress toward your goals or living your values. Below are services and offerings that can help you address and improve in the area of Goals & Direction. Also, check out the blog link for articles and tips to help you in this area. If you’re not sure where to start and would like to schedule a complimentary phone consultation
