Another Success with EpS
“Before coaching, I was feeling unprofessional and unable to see a path. I was busy for busy’s sake and it was overwhelming. I spent my time focused on staff and others as ‘the problem.’ I did get stuff done, but not the stuff I wanted to get done. I was afraid that, if I started working on all the stuff I wanted to do, it would consume my life. So, I procrastinated, which only made me more harried.
I had to do ‘something’- and identified with Harried Helen in Carol’s presentation; too many piles and pulled in too many directions. Why not try coaching? I was a bit skeptical and concerned that I could not afford one hour per week for this. It was well worth the time.
At the end of 2016, although I had double the workload of 2015, I did more work in less time, with less stress. Here is the exciting part: I don't work every weekend anymore. I have my life back. I still can’t believe I am saying that.
Year end of 2015 I was working 10 to 15 hours every weekend and putting in 2-3 late nights at work. Now, I do work at work. Yes, I do put in the very occasional weekend hour, but I can go away on a business trip for the week and catch up within a day.
I actually can say I like being organized; being harried is no longer comfortable as it once was. I never thought I’d say that. The coaching process with Carol is liberating. I have taken back control.”
