On a coaching call yesterday I realized that one of my coaching clients was doing several of the things they were doing in a slightly different way than I do them. That is, the strategies they were using were close, but not quite, to what they needed to be doing.
Close…but missed it by this much! [Cue Maxwell Smart]
Something in our conversation reminded me of the Apollo 13 launch on April 11th, 1970 where an oxygen tank exploded 2 days into the mission causing the mission to be aborted. The next several days were touch and go as several adjustments and heroic actions adjusted the course and ultimately brought the astronauts safely home on April 17th, 1970. At one point, had they not made a slight adjustment they would have missed the earth by 80 miles on their re-entry attempt.
So my question for you today is this: Is it time for a course correction? What are you doing that is just slightly off course? What strategy are you using that is just slightly off, but will miss the target by 80 miles? The reason we loved the Apollo 13 movie is that it was a true story that had a fantastic ending (while the tragedies of Apollo 1 and Challenger were still very fresh).
Is it time for a course correction? Is a little diagnosis in order? How much would it be worth?
What if I help you course correct and help you get where you want to go?
If you’d like a little help you can set up a coaching call right here. It’s easy to set up. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind. It will lead to clarity on your next steps or your money back. And I’m a lot of fun to talk to!
