There’s a book called “Book Yourself Solid” by Michael Port. I read most of it.
Truth be told? I don’t want to book myself solid! I’m serious. Ha!
This week, I’m booked solid. There’s very little white space to be found on the calendar.
The majority of this week is carved out for executive coaching clients, teaching classes at CoachInc, and personal foundation. (Getting my right ear unplugged and seeing a nutritionist.) Oh yeah, I’ll find a way to squeeze in four yoga classes.
On paper, this looks like a successful week.
The question on my mind today is:
How do you define success?
- Lots of cash?
- Having your name appear in a newspaper column?
- A great marriage?
- Healthy children?
I read a short yet targeted piece written by Geoffrey James titled, 10 Questions for Success.
His 10 Questions:
1. Have I made certain that those I love feel loved?
2. Have I done something today that improved the world?
3. Have I conditioned my body to be more strong flexible and resilient?
4. Have I reviewed and honed my plans for the future?
5. Have I acted in private with the same integrity I exhibit in public?
6. Have I avoided unkind words and deeds?
7. Have I accomplished something worthwhile?
8. Have I helped someone less fortunate?
9. Have I collected some wonderful memories?
10. Have I felt grateful for the incredible gift of being alive?
Which question leaps off the screen for you?
