John Michel's curator insight, June 19, 2013 2:19 AM

The most important reason to schedule buffers is to just catch your breath. There is no faster way to feel as though your day is not your own, and that you are no longer in control, than scheduling meetings back to back from the minute you arrive at the office until the moment you leave. I’ve felt the effects of this and seen it with colleagues. Not only is it not fun to feel this way, it’s not sustainable.

It’s time to take control of the programming of negative automatic self-talk. Let your brain search its files for a more positive, constructive, and useful answer.

Being able to choose something new outside of past programming means being able to see with new eyes and hear with new ears. Changing around some of the people, places and things exposes you to different aspects of self that lie just below the surface of doing things the same way over and over.

A Guide To Practical Contentment, by Leo Babauta

A Guide To Practical Contentment, by Leo Babauta | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
We start out in life thinking that we're awesome. We can dance in public as 5-year-olds and not care what others think of us. By the time we're adults, that's driven out of us. We doubt, judge, and criticize ourselves as we strive for happiness.

 

A lot of people search for ways to find happiness, but I’ve found the idea of contentment to be more important than happiness.
Why contentment over happiness? A couple of important reasons:

Happiness can go up or down each day (or moment), but contentment is something more stable.
We tend to seek to increase happiness by adding things (food, excitement, a warm bath, time with a loved one) but contentment is a skill that allows you to subtract things and still be content.

Contentment can actually be a good place to start as you make changes (changes and contentment might seem paradoxical to some, but hear me out).

What separates a truly great coach, from a good one?

Any well trained coach can get good results for their clients. However some coaches seem to be truly “gifted” and can take their clients to a whole new level. These great coaches are often trained to the same level as the average “good” coach, so what is it that gives them this edge of mastery? The things that make a good coach a great one, are intuition and the courage to use it!

5 Things to Do When You Feel Insecure

5 Things to Do When You Feel Insecure | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

"German psychoanalyst Eric Fromm said, “The task we must set for ourselves is not to feel secure, but to be able to tolerate insecurity.”

Everyone I have ever known — I take that back — every likableperson I have ever known in this world has admitted to periods of sheer insecurity. They looked at themselves from the perspective of someone else — perhaps a person with no appreciation of their talents, personality traits, abilities—and judged themselves unfairly according to the perverted view."
