Reflection is tricky

“I can’t go back to yesterday – because I was a different person then. ” – Lewis Carroll
Saw this quote on Jennifer Nguyen’s Facebook page. It encapsulated what I wanted to say about reflection.

Think of the magnitude of this statement. We’re all racing into the future when we may just miss the “door opening in the moment,” which was just the future. Heady, I know.

In coaching and business, planning is touted as the tool of choice. But, I think we over plan, and don’t allow time or room for serendipity to come into our lives.
What do you think?

Just look at American kids how they are over scheduled with play dates, sports and activities. There’s no down time. And, we wonder why they’re fatigued!

True for the parents and caretakers also. We’re so afraid of missing something, chasing a phantom life that hardly appears. (There must be an app [pill] for that!)

Business Influences MC



As a credentialed business coach and analyst, one of my primary functions is to work with individuals and company managers to clarify where they are presently, where they would like to advance, and what tools they have and need to achieve their desired outcome.

I use a variety of tools to assess perceptions including Platinum Rule instruments, my experience and training in assessing behavior. My preferred tool is the EQ-i®, emotional intelligence inventory. I have specialized training on the EQ-i® and DISC Inventories and access to multiple other sources including a company culture index. I prefer the EQ-i® because it is the least judgmental instrument I have found. It focuses on strengths and areas of development related to the goals set by the individual. For example, people are more likely to apply the EQ-i®’s information rather than label themselves by the Myers-Briggs categories.
