Recently, I decided not to coach on Sunday nights. As simple as that decision was, I was surprised by it. “Why didn’t I think of this before? It’s so obvious!,” I thought. But I realized that I’ve been coaching on Sunday nights since I started coaching (early 2008, people), as the nights I spent on When I Grow Up (the days were spent in my Corporate America gig) sometimes weren’t enough. I had to offer weekends up to classes and clients, and Sunday nights seemed like the lesser of all evils. Then, I left Corporate America and started working full-time, and I convinced myself that I still needed to offer Sundays – y’know, for left coast people who didn’t get off work until it was 8 or 9p in my neck of the woods. And while that’s still a valid excuse to keep it up, I realized that’s what it was: an excuse. Thankfully, I trust my business enough to think that the clients won’t dry up if I stop offering Sunday night times. I had to finally recognize that Sunday nights weren’t working for me, and that was “enough” to cut it off when my current Operations! end at the end of August.
So, I was hoping to spark the same for you.
What habit are you gonna break?
If you enjoyed the Intro video for my new band, The Declaration of Ukes, you can now watch our Verse Bloopers (Chorus Bloopers comin’ tomorrow, because we had so many freakin’ bloopers we divvied them up by where they are in the song!) right here. Get ready for hilarity/feeling sorry for my poor, tortured husband.
