The one thing I do is to help people with dreams become leaders with vision. That’s my general life purpose and certainly a specific purpose of my coaching business. Chet Cromer is one of the people I am now coaching and he has turned his experience of a Person-Being-Coached into an authentic, insightful and refreshingly honest blog called One Thing I Do. Chet also owns a successful IT consulting firm in south-central Indiana – check him out.
Check out Chet’s blog at One Thing I Do. Here is a brief excerpt to get you started:
“Don’t go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
This Ralph Waldo Emerson quote has been a favorite of mine for many years. Up until now, though, I always pictured it as me venturing forth into some great unknown, some grand mission outside of my little “realm.” It wasn’t until the past month that I’ve begun to see that the place where there is no path is actually many parts of my own life. I am in a time of transition right now, with work, with family, and above all else, in my personal life. I have entered into a coaching relationship with a brother named Mark Sturgell, and for the past month, have been learning that the dreams in the back of my head MATTER, that goals I might want to achieve CAN BE DONE, and that it’s not MAGIC. It is requiring a lot of hard work, but I’m already seeing the benefits in my confidence in who I am, who I was made to be, and what I was made to do.
One thing I’ve found over the years, and it’s rung true this past month, is that writing things down really crystallizes them for me. So I’m thinking of using my blog here to share, mainly with myself, some of the things I’m learning. Writing them down with a pen on a sheet of paper gets me started, but putting those thoughts into complete sentances, clean tables, and even before the public eye pushes me a little bit more.”
