3 Tips to Avoid Complacency

I promise I wasn’t being complacent when I didn’t post last week.

It was a choice. I value every second of holiday that I have with my family and had committed to not working while we were away. I didn’t give myself space to even think about work.

I guess my ability to compartmentalize is a gift, but it comes at a cost.

Now that I am back at my desk, having been unplugged for 10 days makes me feel totally complacent. Disconnected from my end goal, unfocused and unmotivated.

Luckily my friend sent me a video that totally resonated with me. Yes it’s a little intense but it lit the fire under my a##. http://bit.ly/1gPddkY and it might for you too!

If you are also feeling complacent, here’s what helped me get into motion:

TIP 1. Get clear on where you want to go.

If you have no idea, email me victoria@turnercoaching.com and I will send you my Vision Guide a series of questions to help guide you in finding clarity around your future. That being said, a client just shared with me that she also created a huge vision board. She’s a very visual person and created a 6 ft x 3 ft collage of images from magazines that represent what she loves and are important to her future. She uses her vision board as a physical reminder of what she’s working towards, especially when she’s feeling challenged or unfocused.

TIP 2. Get inspired.

There are so many ways to get inspired. Read a biography of a phenomenal human being, watch a video like this http://bit.ly/1gPddkY or TED Talks https://www.ted.com/talks/browse , etc….

TIP 3. Get into action.

Stop thinking about it and just do it. The only way you will fail is if you don’t even try.


Life’s too short to stay complacent!
