Something About Coaching: Good Habits and Flexibility
I am in love with this article by Markham Heid: Why the Stressed Brain Falls Back on Old Habits. Read it. Gain some clarity. Inform your rebel self, the one who breaks good habits and exerts her willpower over your good intentions, that if she lets you establish some of those good habits she thinks she’s against, there’s plenty of room for her to play; flexibility could be her sweet spot.
Read the article to find out what I’m talking about.
Read the article to find out something about me and my coaching style. Heid’s article validates why I begin with establishing a creative habit with clients and, frankly, anyone who asks me where to begin or how to reconnect with writing–and why we do a 30-Day Daily Pages challenge in my writing community, To Live & Write … Wherever You Are several times a year.
Importantly, this is also why I offer so many novelty writing salons that secretly improve your writing and storytelling skills while you play.
Oh, and it’s why I insist on this specific 3-minute practice at the beginning of each workshop, lab, retreat, etc.
Basically, I have an irrational love for writers and an incredibly strong desire to provide opportunities for you to be your whole, amazing creative self, plus the need to offer practical, effective, productive playtime.
Anyoo, read Heid’s article. It could help you in other areas of your life as well. It’s excellent information to have for coping with 2020 and preparing for 2021.
