Listen to Diane and Coach Meg here:
Recently I asked coaches in the Wellcoaches community to submit a list of 10 ways in which they want to thrive. Diane is dealing with some challenging health issues and asked me for a series of coaching sessions designed to improve her health and life satisfaction.
In our third session, Diane's excitement for goal setting and visioning was being drowned out by the noise of daily tasks and to dos. She had fallen into the trap of believing that everything on the list is a priority and worthy of concern when not accomplished immediately.
Time management guru Dr. Stephen R. Covey has much to say about the subject of prioritization and its impact on our well-being. Dr. Covey suggests that we place our tasks into one of four categories, which he depicts in "quadrants."
In which Quadrant do you spend most of your time? Which Quadrant provides you energy to keep going? Which drains your energy? What can you do to make more intentional choices about how you spend your time?
