90 Word Reflections on Coaching.
Not as easy as it sounds (but neither is coaching).
REGULAR TIME (90):
Reflection 1: 90 words on when it ends.
This long, slow, silence of the “new normal” challenges.
Alone, save for my thoughts.
No clarity forward. I look back.
Can’t remember the wins. Only the losses.
The pain of regret doesn’t fade. It hides.
Patiently waiting to resurface. Stronger. Matured.
Retrospective reflection is valuable. I believe that. I crave it.
To fail with curiosity instead of shame is toughness.
Did I leave it better than I found it?
It’s the only question that matters.
Embrace the answer first. Fully.
Okay, now on to the rest.
“It started off as a song of defiance, about this woman: She’s metaphorically seeing the diary of her life pass by, and she’s thinking, ‘You know what? I have no regrets.’ She’s raising a glass to it.”
- Noel Gallagher to NPR on writing “Don’t Look Back In Anger” for Oasis in 1995
