On top of the world, at the end of the day.

Well not on top of the world, but at the top of Mount Snowdon with my daughter paying tribute to the lives of my Uncle and Aunti who passed away a few months ago. In coaching there is an interesting exercise which some psychologists use. We ask our client to imagine going to the end of their lives and imagining their funeral. A bit grim maybe, but it has the effect of helping us recognize how precious time is. When the coachee is at that place various significant people are then asked to provide a short legacy of what your life meant to them and others. The individual is also invited to look back from that place over the whole of their lives and to notice what they did well, and what they could have done better. My definition of Hell is to get to your last breath on this planet and have an “Ah Ha” experience. My definition of Heaven is being able to have the skills to be who you want to be and do what you want to do, and start that process now. What will people say about you when, in the future, you pass away?
