“At least three times a day, take a moment and ask yourself what is really important. Have the wisdom and the courage to build your life around your answer.”
– Lee Jampolsky, author of inspirational psychology books
In the field of coaching, perhaps the most critical quality we can have is full and objective awareness of our current reality, our future vision, and our plans to bridge that gap.
I support Jampolsky’s idea of checking in morning, noon and night with what’s most important. It’s these priorities, when lived with wisdom and courage, which have us live our best life.
Take three 8×11 pieces of paper and with the largest font possible, write out the phrase “What is really important?”
Place these reminders in those places you are mostly likely to find yourself in the morning, at noon, and at night.
Feel free to get creative with your smartphone, alarm clock or other digital reminder device, to keep this thought at the forefront of your days.
