Have you got 15 minutes today? — this is probably the shortest coaching session for you, entirely for free.

In my life, as probably in yours, important events begin with normal words. And this time was the same.

It all began with words: for what purpose? for me it was IMPORTANT. I hope that it will be important for you, too…

hello there, hello there. what are you doing? you don’t answer anything. haven’t you heard? ah! you are busy. are you working? you are carrying out your PLAN, you are pushing forward another project.

I know, I know, everyday slog. so please stop for a while. please stop.

look at me and answer the question: do you like playing? I know, I know that you do. most of us do.

so come and play a simple GAME, ok? the game “question today, answer today”. sit down comfortably. take a blank sheet of paper and a pencil.
I will be asking questions if you don’t mind, and you will give answers. write answers down on the sheet of paper.

note — question 1: what are you here for today? and write your first answer down on the sheet of paper. 
note — question 2: what are you here for today? and write your second answer down on the sheet of paper.
note — question 3: what are you here for today? and again write your answer down on the sheet of paper, please.

don’t clench your mouth, don’t laugh up your sleeve. I know these reactions.
how are you feeling? everything’s ok. if so, let’s continue. be careful — I’m going to surprise you with another question.

what are you here for today? oh no! what do you want? put your answer down on the sheet of paper, please.
and another question: what are you here for today? — you’re quiet. don’t be quiet, please, play. write down your fifth answer on the sheet of paper.
and just before a short break yet another final question: what are you here for today?

why are you looking at me that way? haven’t you got used to it yet? nobody promised you that it would be easy.
how are you feeling now? it was more difficult — more difficult than in the first round of questions. super. now it’s the last round — it will be even easier. ready?

ok so be careful — last three questions and last three answers:

what are you here for today?
what are you here for today?
what are you here for today?

and all three answers; don’t laugh; write them down on the SHEET of paper. Calm down, it’s all over. now look at your answers and out of those nine ones choose three the most important for you.

I’ll give you a minute. think.
have you picked? if so, we are moving on to the finals, in which I will ask you the same first question, and in the first mini round you will give me one of those three chosen answers.
I will give you an example of one of such mini rounds. go through 3 such mini rounds, start each one with a different answer chosen by yourself.

and here is an example:

what are you here for today? — because I have to work. 
what do you have to work for? — because I want to carry out tasks entrusted to me.
what do you want to carry out tasks entrusted to you for? — because I want to receive my remuneration.
what do you want to receive your remuneration for? — in order to buy a person close to you a gift. what do you want to buy the person close to you a gift for? — in order to make him/her happy. 
what do you want to make the person close to you happy for? — because I will be happy.

oh, I got you, so you are here today and you are doing what you are doing not because of a heavy workload but for the HAPPINESS of the person who is close to you and for your own happiness, too.

cool, isn’t it? it should be easier for you to work now.

when you do this exercise three times you will find out your real reasons, motives why you do what you do. remember it especially when you really don’t feel like it and you need motivation.

have a good day.
