Managing the balancing act

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

When you run your own business and have a family too, it's easy to feel like you can't manage all the different things that you have on your plate. We all feel like that at some point or another. The key is to not let that feeling overwhelm you.

One of the coaching techniques I use with clients is to get them to write down all the things that they 'have' to do, then get to them work through the list prioritising each item.

This sounds like common sense and it is, but the great thing about doing it with a coach is that a coach will get you to realistically assess each item on its own merits, look at the outcomes if you don't get it done straight away and enable you to re-prioritse so that you can still work your way through your to do list but with less pressure and more satisfaction.

If one of your key challenges is not being able to manage your to-do list and feeling overwhelmed with all the things you think you have to do, then you might benefit from working with a coach.
