A few suggestions to make the most of
it, Ditch it, Delegate it Day:
If you haven't already, start thinking about your de-clutter challenge. Don’t be surprised if you feel like
getting a head start. It’s funny how that happens.
Write down the steps to
accomplish the challenge. Then divide them into 3 segments; one segment for each hour of the call. You’ll
find you have greater success if you’re well prepared in advance.
Plan for the challenge
Hang a big DO NOT DISTURB sign on your door if you can, or try your best to minimize the interruptions. Also,
plan for your de-clutter and personal needs. Have plenty of boxes or garbage bags ready if you’re likely to
need them. Have plenty of snacks ready, lots of water or coffee, and even plan the music you’ll listen to as
you rise to the occasion.
Plan to bring You to the call
Prepare to support and be supported, to challenge and to be challenged. The best part of a call such as this
is the community feeling that we’re in this together. No joke, it’s amazing how much it matters.

game and play all the way.

Why is this day so
Thomas Leonard, the
father of coaching and someone I admire greatly, created this model for coaching. He believed (as do
I) that unless our needs are met, we won’t be free to be happy. Unmet needs are obstacles that can be moved out of
the way by cleaning up the unfinished business and handling the dangling things. Once done we can more easily
meet needs and move on to achieve real happiness. It sure makes a lot of sense.
