Gold Star For Me

As part of my coaching practice, I give out gold stars for effort.

Yes, you read that right.

You get a gold star for the effort you put into your tasks, not just for the result.

I find that so much more rewarding AND it helps people remember that their efforts always matter, no matter how things turn out.

Today has been a bit of a struggle (no crisis, just ordinary hard) but I am putting one foot in front of the other.

Gold star for me!
