GB and I are often lamenting the fact that we are now both in our 30s and feeling a little behind on the whole ‘life plan’ thing.  It seems like everyone around us is launching a business or starting a family or doing something productive and grown up.  Although we have a sense of where we want to go in life, I think we often find ourselves lacking in the planning department.  We both nearly peed ourselves with excitement last night when we got an email from our friend Denise about a coaching group she is offering this summer.

For a little background information, Denise is pretty much our connection to all things grown-up.  She does coaching and consulting for major corporations like Pfizer, John Deere, TREK USA, The Children’s Heart Center, Fidelity, Novartis…you get the picture.  She’s big.  She’s popular.  People love her.  Should we ever need to name-drop, her name will be on the top of the list.

Anyway, Denise is in the process of writing a book and as part of that, she’s launching a pilot program for “Young Professionals”.  I thought I would post the description here because there are lots of people whose blogs I read who seem like they would fit the bill for this course.  She’s only taking 6 people or so and because it’s a pilot, the rate is significantly reduced so it will probably fill up fast.  But hey, maybe if you drop my name…or not.

Now’s The Time To Integrate Who You Are With What You Do

Strategic planning is an essential tool for business. But have you ever thought of how rewarding and satisfying creating a strategic plan for yourself might be?

Too often, most of us get caught up in the day-to-day details of working and living — THE DOING — and we forget to stop to consider if we are also paying attention to fulfilling our life’s mission and purpose. That is why I developed a coaching program focusing on Creating Your Own Personal Strategic Plan.

A Personal Strategic Plan is not for the faint of heart.
In this process you will embark on the grand adventure of assessing what you have achieved and where you want to go. You will identify your life’s purpose, create your personal vision and articulate the next steps in your journey. You will clarify your priorities, what you value, and create the road map so that you can live the life you have dreamed.
It is your life, after all.

Outcomes of similar programs can be found here.

If you have any questions, drop me a line because I’m – you know – connected.

In other news, I tried running again this morning and my knee wasn’t terrible, which is great.  This afternoon I will embark on some pool running because I wouldn’t want to miss out on an opportunity to run in one place while wearing a swimsuit that says “pool shark”.

Good luck to all those of you who are racing this weekend.  I only know of Beth and Elizabeth, and Jen for sure, but good luck to anyone I missed also!

 ps. I know that strategery is not a real word, but GB and I like to talk about our Carcassonne ‘strategery’ and are trying to make it into a real word.

    this kinda freaks me out as, my boyfriend and i … as well as our friends chris and wendy are also lobbying to have ‘strategery’ made into a real word. we’re on the west coast so perhaps if we each attack it from our respective coasts … it’ll take over the nation!
