I am amazed at how quickly the times goes.  We’re at the end of September 2012.  Already!  Some of my clients are shifting into high gear for the final push of the year.  I often find that when this happens, we tend to put task ahead of self-reflection.  Before we run head long into the final Quarter of the year, let’s take stock to ensure we’re on the path we intend to be. 

Many of us are familiar with business reviews; we take stock, check the numbers, compare to targets and review the goals before heading into the new quarter.

Shouldn’t we do the same for all the other parts of our lives?

Reflect on the following critical life statements and rate each one on a scale of 1 to 5—1 being low and 5 being high.  Your total score will give you a good indication of where you currently stand in the game of life.  Don’t neglect yourself this busy period. Consider engaging a coach to support you and your career or business until that well-deserved holiday at the end of the year.
