Episode #2 – Assessment (taking a look at your current life)

This episode talks about the need to become aware of your thoughts about your life right now. There are perhaps some things you love, some things that are okay, and things that you’d like to change. In medicine, our first step is to take a good history before we make an assessment.  An accurate and well informed assessment is necessary before embarking on making a plan.  We will use the same format in our coaching work and begin with taking an assessment of where you are right now.
