Life can shift quickly to a higher level of intensity. When such shifts occur, you have to shift as well. The first step is awareness. Can you feel a shift to a higher intensity? Does your mind grasp it or do you wait until your body feels stress? When you become aware of a shift in intensity, I suggest you stop. Bring yourself fully to the present moment so you can respond to the shift calmly and in control. Sometimes you can slow things down yourself; other times you have to gear up to run with it. Awareness is the key.

I saw a good animated video on You Tube about how coaching works that I want to share with you.
Coaching is about creating a space of support and encouragement for you to move forward in your life. Hope you enjoy it!
Collaboration must start with awareness. Each collaboration is organic and evolves according to the individuals, emotions, perceptions and agendas involved. The collaborative leader must have the awareness and skill to find the commonalities and differences among participants and gain their trust. From this point, the collaboration can be commonly defined and the way forward identified.
The new year has begun. You have choice in how you start it. Will you take advantage of this choice or let others make it for you? What is your best choice – start quietly, start focused, start with gusto? You have the opportunity to set the direction of your life in 2011. Take advantage of this and consciously set your course.
