Many of us have to-do lists.
But what we really need is a “don’t-do” list.
As you transition into the new year and strive to reach your professional goals, it’s critical that you stop some of the tendencies that are slowing you down or getting in your way. Through our work in executive coaching programs, we uncovered some of these bad habits, every one of which has a negative impact on your life.
So add these to your brand, spanking-new don’t-do list.

In Matthew Kelly's book The Rhythm of Life, he says...
"Everything is a Choice. This is life's greatest truth and its hardest lesson. It is a great truth because it reminds us of our power. Not power over others, but the often untapped power to be ourselves and to live the life we have imagined."
Kelly goes on to say that it's a hard lesson because it causes us to realize that we have chosen the life we are living right now.

WHAT are my goals? And, HOW will I achieve those goals?

Everything in life is a choice.
How do you make your choices? What are they based on?
When we are clear about what is most important to us, we can make choices that are aligned with what we want in our lives. Guiding principles help keep us focused throughout the year and give us a foundation to determine the choices we make every day. It is through those daily choices that we build our lives.
