If Something Isn’t Working

If something wasn’t working, I used to try harder.

If something still wasn’t working, I would try even harder.

If that didn’t work, usually I would give up.

I forgot one option that has proven invaluable.

I could try something different.

Like most people, I would hit my head against the wall repeatedly thinking that my skull, my skill and previous experiences would break down that wall.

Usually, they didn’t.

But I’m not particularly smart sometimes.

My habits run me instead of me running the situation in making decisions.

For example, I like to do one on one coaching but people like other ways to learn what I have to offer.

(No this is not going to be a sales pitch)

I start to do course creation and writing, again.

It offers a different price point for engaging with me and that’s okay. I’m helping different people that I might otherwise.

I started a group coaching into the repertoire affording people at different price point for receiving support from me.

Is there something that you could do differently than you are now and serve more people?

It doesn’t have to be hard, difficult or cumbersome to do.

There are as many options as you allow your mind to drift to.

Start doing something different.
