I've been working on my personal fitness goals for many, many years now. I've tried diets, home workout programs, and gym memberships. Nothing has really given me remarkable results. It's not that these programs don't work. I know they work for some people. It's just that they haven't worked for me. I run multiple businesses, am renovating my home, and have an active social life. My willpower often gets stretched thin. All that said, I still want to realize my fitness goals. So in February of this year I decided I needed a different approach. I hired a personal trainer. Fast forward to now. Eight months have passed and I realize this was the best decision I ever made in this area of my life. I also realized the subtle value of having a coach. A good coach is like the mortar in a brick wall. While we tend to look at the bricks, it's the mortar that keeps it all together. That's what my coach does. She keeps my fitness together, even when I lack the will to do so! Take a hard look at your life and your businesses. In what areas do you want success more than anything else? THIS is where you need a coach. Heck, I'm a coach and even I have one!
Companies deliver value to their customers through a myriad of interconnected processes. In order to serve our customers better, we need to keep improving our processes. Unfortunately, not all areas of our business have the same aptitude for change. Some parts evolve easily, while others resist even the smallest improvement. In other words, every area of a business has an inherent aptitude for change . I called this aptitude Process Fitness . How do you elevate process fitness? The short answer is, practice. Find yourself a coach, and start the journey of practice. There's nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
