My middle sister got engaged this week. I knew her boyfriend was going to propose. He’d asked for my opinion on an engagement ring and made me promise not to tell anyone. (For those of you that don’t know me – I never break a promise …… secrets I’ll blab for a Jack D and diet Coke, promises I keep ’til I die.)
The weird thing was, he didn’t need to contact me. He already knew which ring she would love. He had a picture in his head, but rang me just before he set off to the jewellers.
Isn’t that always the way ? You know the answer already. You know what you need to do. You know what you should do ……. but at the last minute you have a crisis of faith and you don’t trust your judgement.
Enter Coach, stage left*.
Coaches don’t tell you what to do; Coaches don’t give advice; Coaches don’t have all the answers – you do, and by asking you the right questions, getting you to think differently about any problem ou’re faced with, they help you find the best way forward.
Denise and Tony ………. it’s about time & I love you both.
