Could these Prioritizers be you?
The Competing Prioritizer
Priorities compete for your attention. Everything seems important and you find yourself living in the urgent response box. Your important priorities always seem to wait for you to get around to them.
The Restless Prioritizer
You start directed your intention and action on a few priorities. You make headway on your goals. Then something else catches your eye. It seems interesting and the cycle repeats itself.
The Pleaser Prioritizer
You are available to everyone and always put yourself second, third and fourth on your list. You've never mastered the art of putting on your oxygen mask first so you can be of best service to others.
The Perfectionistic Prioritizer
You are great at prioritizing, but it comes at a cost. Everything has to be perfect or nearly perfect, and that's not possible. It's so hard to accept "good is good enough." Accepting that 20% of your effort will get 80% of your outcome is something you've never been able to accept.
The Procrastinating Prioritizer
You procrastinate, put off today what can be done tomorrow and the next day. Underneath it all you are usually afraid of succeeding or failing, so you simply don't start. Sometimes, the goal seems so big and smaller steps to a bigger goal sounds like planning to you.
The Avoiding Prioritizer
Similar to the Procrastinating Prioritizer, the Avoider Prioritizer avoids taking action on their priorities, typically to skirt an unpleasant emotion. Could be emotions like worry, anxiety or panic associated with started something new, like goals that make you stretch.
"Kim has a way of coaching that makes you really think about what you want/need and how to get there. She asks insightful questions that make you think about your answers and challenges you to think about why you want something.
Then once you’ve decided what it is that you want/need to accomplish she helps develop a plan to get you there.
Whether your looking to be a healthier or looking for a new career, she can help. Through my coaching with her, I realized change for the sake of change is not a good thing, but, rather to really think about my choices.
She made me think about how my choices not only affect me but my family as well. By doing this I did not make changes lightly, but, I rather carefully considered everything so that I could make the changes that would be best in my life."
"I had been experiencing a general sense of "stuckness" for a few months: not rising to my potential but also not knowing in which direction to head. I had fallen into some routines as well that I knew were contributing to the problem, but I wasn't sure how to change them.
It all had me feeling pretty down.
When I met with Kim, her holistic questioning really helped clarify the root of my dilemma, and she was skillful in helping me identify solutions and practical action steps.
I appreciated her ability to listen fully and empathize, while also driving the conversation toward action and boosting my motivation to make needed changes.
My work with her definitely helped me climb out of the rut I was in.
She is really good at what she does and I highly recommend her!"
"My sessions with Kimberly were invaluable in helping me to connect to my vision of my best self. Also identifying values that were important to me regarding my overall health, really motivated me to take that next step to changing behaviors.
Kimberly helped me set small, realistic, achievable goals which increased my confidence in my ability to make the necessary lifestyle changes.
Thanks to Kimberly's coaching, I achieved my goals, one success at a time."
"It’s my secret weapon and has skyrocketed my productivity and well-being. I cannot imagine my life without it."
