I recommend you keep a journal during your coaching sessions. It’s a great way to fast track your progress as it allows you to see patterns and reminds you of how far you’ve come.
If you’ve never kept a journal before here are some tips to help you …
How You can make it a paper or electronic journal, it’s up to you. Some people like the idea of not being able to edit their thoughts so they make it a physical journal. That also lets you draw pictures or paste images.
When You should aim to write in your journal after each session and at least twice a week. Most people find a regular pattern of entries encourages them to take action so they have something to record!
What It is entirely up to you what your journal contains … there are no rules but here are some suggestions:
- Thoughts on our sessions
- Reflections on past experiences
- Questions you have
- Analysis of your behaviour
- Ideas on your options
- Feedback you’ve received
- Concerns you have
- Quotes that resonate with you
- Images that inspire you
If you have trouble getting started we can work on that in our sessions.
