Live. Observe. Reflect. TWEAK
and Breakthrough Journal
Do what you do, ONLY BETTER in 30 days!
Self-improvement is a lifelong journey. But it can become increasingly difficult when we create structure in our lives meant to help us 'adult' (AKA: manage responsibilities and expectations to ourselves, our families, our friends, our work etc). This 'adulting' structure can also increase the likelihood of going into autopilot mode. In autopilot mode (living in the subconscious), we react to life as it comes at us without taking the time to assess if we are still making the right choices and guiding our thoughts, feelings and actions in a way that will make us happy in the future. 95% of the time, we are reacting out of learned behaviors from our past that no longer serve the same purpose they did many years ago. Noticing these rules are the only way for us to decide if we need to keep or make new ones. These old thoughts and beliefs also create stress in our demanding lives which can make us mentally and physically sick. Removing these beliefs and stressors can lift us out of pain so we can live more freely, with ease and joy!
We can't change what we don't notice or acknowledge! In just a few minutes a day, this journal will guide you to make observations about your thoughts, feelings, actions/interactions and reflect on one of these so you can see patterns that will enable you to tweak the behaviors that might not be getting you the results you want. Consider adding my coaching services to this process if you find yourself challenged being disciplined, self-directed or usually need external accountability to meet expectations. If you are not sure how you respond to expectations, take this quiz by Gretchen Rubin to find out!

Here is how it works:
Wake up, get out of bed and be open to capturing some observations about your day! That's all that needs to happen in this step.
For 10 days at a time, you get to observe what is happening for you on any given day. My journal will guide you to identify what thoughts, feelings or actions/interactions energized or drained you.
The reflection questions for each day's observations force you to think about what you chose to reflect on, why and what that could mean for you. The process of just observing and reflecting in this way allows you to come to some conclusions every 10 days so you have the option to think, feel and do things differently by day 30.
Every 10 days, you will have the opportunity to notice patterns in your thoughts, feelings or actions. Those patterns are data points that will allow you to make different choices if you decide you truly want to see and experience different results. Working with me as your coach during this process will help you get the most from your observations and reflections. However, the observations and reflections alone can provide many people the momentum to think and act differently. Just the act of documenting and observing yourself and your patterns can create breakthroughs! The goal-setting pages provide the momentum to take action on what you observed. People who are more motivated with external accountability to meet expectations will be better served by adding coaching to keep commitments and keep you on track. Call me to discuss!
Regularly noticing how we feel, think and act will keep us poised to make decisions in life that we are proud of and that align with our values. For this reason, I encourage you to repeat these observations and check-in with yourself every six months. Use my journal each time to keep you focused. Engaging in this type of activity keeps us from going into autopilot mode (where we just reacting to what is coming at us) and carrying on with old life rules that might be derailing us from making intentional choices that help us reach our goals and feel good about how we are living our lives.
