Spring is in the air - time to plan.
We seem to have gone from summer to winter in a week, but hopefully will be back to spring in the next few days. When there is more sunshine, spring flowers and change is in the air it seems a good time to plan what you want to change in your life.
I was talking to somebody recently who said she never plans her life - and she was surprised when I said I always have plans for the next week, year, five years etc. A fellow coach agreed with me and we were interested to find we'd both got into coaching through Eileen Mulligan's book 'Life Coaching - Change your life in 7 days'(1999 Judy Piatkus Publishers Ltd).
Reading this book had made us realise that where we wanted to make change in our lives, visualising, planning and keeping to plans was essential. It sounds very dull, but in fact it's exciting, especially looking back to a plan made in July 2009 and seeing my progress along a path to a new life. Of course I don't keep to every detail of every plan and life is full of spontaneous happenings, but it's enableld me to move in a general direction instead of staying in the same place.
