It’s still January, and I’m still thinking about the new year, new goals, new intentions. How do we organize our hopes and dreams into an achievable form?
When I was teaching at UT-Austin, I usually distributed a mid-semester course evaluation, which I stole from a professor of mine, who borrowed it from her brother, also a professor. It consisted of three questions, and only three questions.
It’s such a concise, focused, simple, comprehesive assessment that I still use it as a life tool, for myself and for my coaching clients. It’s genius:
- What shall I continue doing?
- What shall I begin doing?
- What shall I stop doing?
Absolutely everything is captured in these three questions. Use them as a tool for life’s big questions, or for micro situations. It’s never failed me.
