Why I always need to be coaching on time management

I recently signed up a new coaching client specifically for time management.
She's a busy professional who works both out of an office and on the road, interviewing people. She chatted to me a few months ago but finally decided to get serious a few weeks ago and booked me for an initial 3-month coaching programme.

I have so enjoyed coaching her not just because I love coaching and I get along well with her but because I am giving myself a refresher every time we chat.

It is absolutely great reinforcing principles I fully believe in and have seen the benefits of in my own life and in the lives of countless other people.

I'm a very productive person generally but over the last couple of weeks, I'm amazed at what I've been able to do. I've completed the first draft of my How to become a professional organiser e-book with Suzanne, I have written and completed a Christmas Planner, and I've been blogging like crazy over on Clutter Control Freak and on the Organising Queen blog.

And I've been reading lots (finished 10 books in August and 5 already for Sept).

So I decided that I always need to be coaching a time management client - it's clearly a win-win situation :-)

Seriously, if you do need help, email me personally on marcia @ takechargesolutions. org and I'll be very glad to help you!

Can we also throw in that Ms. Marcia has completed her portion of the book and Suzanne has completely slacked off on her end? I am thinking that you need an extra round of applause on that one, babycakes! I am a completely flattened souffle! Way to go!

It is so true that teaching someone something we already know helps us know that thing even better.
I love win-win situations!

That's awesome Marcia!

Marcia said...

Suzanne - LOL :)

Karen, it is very true. That's why I don't think we ever learn as much as when we teach those principles to others

Laura, thanks!

Yep, I've noticed that if I'm helping someone else in a specific area then I also improve. Glad you've found the same.

You've made a great point here! I find the same thing in myself. One reason homeschooling works out well for me - I'll get a refresher course in a multitude of subjects by the time the kids are done!

Hope your client finds great results as well.
