The following is an excerpt of an actual transaction between David and a client in Top Coaching Techniques.
David: Yeah. Groovy. Now I want to acknowledge you, too, because I think, yes, you can be hard on yourself. I’m seeing, from this form, that you are aware of what’s happening around you, and you’re making decisions and you’re making movements and you’re looking at your life.
David: That’s what I want for you, that you’re continually doing that. If you notice any conversation in your head about, ‘Oh, I’m terrible,’ or, ‘I’m not getting stuff done,’ or, ‘I’m not doing enough,’ or like that, firstly you can say, ‘Thanks for sharing,’ and let it go. But secondly, you can do what you’ve done here in the form. This is perfect. Write down the stuff that you intended to do, write down what you didn’t do, and write down what you’re going to do and then do it.
David: That’s perfect.
Client: All right.
