Coaching yourself to do what you know you need to do.

I was looking at the dates between today's post and the last one and noticed that it has been almost two weeks since my last post. (promised myself that I would post at least twice a week) I could use some lame excuse why I fell short of writing twice a week but I have no one to blame but myself. Yes, I have been busy coaching contractors and networking and like many people, could justify the lack of results I agreed I would hold myself to. Instead of allowing the excuses, I re-read my goals and definite chief aim and followed my coaching checklist to get my head back in the game.

Whenever we fall off the track it is important to recognize it and have the resolve to right the situation. I learned from mentors that having your goal written down and a checklist detailing the steps to stay on the track for success are crucial. If you take the time to develop a plan on how to correct yourself when you go off the path, less time will be spent in a rut.

When you don't do the things you know you should do, how do you handle it? Do you allow excuses or do you have a plan to correct your path in line with your goals?
