What do you want to do?

I recently posed these questions as homework to a coaching client.

In my experience, the answers typically aren’t aligned.

Which regularly causes emotional, mental, and physical friction.

The key to your answers is giving yourself space to examine them.

Whether we’re aware of it or not, deep down, we know what we should do.

Being honest with yourself about what you can do is more challenging.

Often, we underestimate our capabilities and believe we can do less than we’re capable of.

Uncovering what you want to do can be uncomfortable.

It might mean making decisions others might scoff at or dismiss as folly.

It might mean having a difficult conversation with a loved one.

Or a boss.

The more aligned your answers are, the easier your path will become in the long run.

Please consider the questions as you make plans for the new year.

Your answers may surprise you.
