“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save. They just stand there, shining.”

– Anne Lamott, novelist and non-fiction writer

As a coach, my business is a bit unusual in that I hold most of my coaching sessions in person, in my office. Instead of running all over town to meet with each individual client, I created a secure harbor for these coaching sessions, in a calm and confidential location, removed from the often hectic rushing around that comprises many people’s days.

Exercise:

Where are you currently running all over your personal and professional “island” looking for boats to save?

How could you let your own shining light act as a beacon to bring greater sanity, security and success into your world?
