The “10” I almost missed

“Seismic nudges” feature prominently in my coaching practice and speaking engagements. Such nudges can have an impact ranging from barely perceptible all the way to 10 on your personal Richter scale. Recently, I got served a “10” that started out as a “1”.

In June, I launched an initiative after spending the previous year occupied with delay tactics, heel-digging, and dodging the launch pad. Yes, even coaches get in their own way. When I finally took a deep breath and put my idea out to the universe, I thought I had the big picture in mind.

During a conversation with a potential advocate of my initiative, they posed a question that I mentally dismissed at the time, yet it kept bugging me. That was my “1”. The  implications didn’t hit me until two days later. Hello, “10”!

Apologies for being vague. The details aren’t important here. What’s important is that even though we may have a clear vision of what we want, there’s still room for possibilities on top of your possibilities.

What possibilities are you dismissing right now?
