    Of couse, if you are ADD, then you may fill the bucket of water, get ready to throw it… Oh, look at that flying thigamiggy…
    That’s the real problem. Plans may be a pain in the neck to make. But, it’s the execution.
    Learn what you do- to insure you can do otherwise, when you need to do it.

    Love the analogy of the witch and the bucket of water but as Roy says and as you have said before – its what you do after you know that counts. I love the title of the book Get off your duff and do it……

    Great analogy, Tambre, and who doesn’t enjoy a good story? I know, I do!

    I believe most of us get stuck finding that bucket of water — or keeping our wits about us long enough to catch our breath and think clearly enough to act. Plus all those monkeys flying around create such a degree of distraction and confusion, our feet may stay frozen in cement.

    Darn that witch!

    Hi Tambre,

    You are right that the first step is awareness! If you aren’t aware that something is keeping you stuck, it’s irrelevant as to even discuss what steps to take. However, every piece of the puzzle counts, because once you have awareness but still don’t take the action to move you along the yellow brick road, you wouldn’t get to where you want to go.

    I love the story and analogy!

    What a lovely gathering of TLC Clubbers. I love how you’ve all shared yourselves. Can feel your personality in your words.

    It’s like this story line, being near and dear to so many, causes a connection that everyone can relate to.

    Core emotions can get so stuck within. I’d love to hear more about your i-Thrive and how I might lead my clients to you when they need this type of work.

    That was one of my favorite movies when I was a little girl. Those monkey’s scared me then and they still do! I liked how you compared the bucket of water Tambre, to your i-Thrive assessment. Understanding who we are, what we want to accomplish and knowing what we can and cannot do is so important is meeting our goals – personal or business.

    Coaches and mentors are a positive source to get an unbiased feedback that everyone should always consider while on their path towards success.

    Thank you for sharing your analogy and wish you much success towards your coaching program.
