To Be… Or just to do, is that the question?
Every Monday I spend a few minutes with my calendar open and my tablet in hand planning the next week or two ahead:
What sessions am I running?
Which coaching clients am I seeing?
What sales calls / account planning meetings to attend?
What internal events am I expected to be at?
and what preparation is needed for each, at what time and in what priority? In essence creating a high level "to do" list.
But recently I was speaking with a colleague to share an alternative habit.
The "To Be" list.
I hadn't heard of that so I asked. They told me, "what do you want to be this week? Kinder? Thorough? Calmer? Focused? Mindful?
That really struck home as I thought about the power of setting intention for any project, task or goal. And I realized / remembered that I can bring that same intentionality to my being, not just my doing.
So, what’s on your to be list?
