From President Mina Ward:
As a new year begins we all take time to reflect and think about where we are and where we want to be in the world, some of us even set goals! January is almost up, so the question is how are those goals going? Not so good? What was your focus when you set the goal? All too often we focus on the what and don’t understand the why.
Darrell Klar, from Clear Cut Coaching, explained to us on Tuesday that goals often involve changing behaviour. We don’t often assess our capability when setting goals. There needs to be a shift from our ‘shoulds’ to our ‘musts’. Our choices and decisions are made based on our beliefs.
In the hierarchy of how our choices are influenced is our identity. This is who we are. At an unconscious level we are influenced by ‘why we are here’. So the next time you set a goal, ask yourself the questions: who am I? What skills do I have that make me who I am? Why do I want to do this goal? Do I believe it is the right thing and that is can be achieved? Is it congruent with who I am as a person?
Darrell works with individuals and corporate businesses to realise their goals and motivate them to achieve them. He suggests being mindful of where we are in the moment is very powerful is reaching our goals. So everyone, I challenge you all to ‘live in the moment’.

It was lovely to see Graeme Packer, from RC Morialta along at Tuesday’s meeting. Sue has been working with Graeme over the last few weeks in preparation for our combined efforts for the BBQ at the Tour Down Under on Thursday. It’s always nice to see members from our mother club attend our meeting.
A REMINDER – THERE IS NO MEETING ON TUESDAY 26TH JANUARY (IT’S AUSTRALIA DAY, SO HAVE A LIE IN!!)
